Abbey Elias, better known as SkiiBii, fondly called, Swaggerlee of Africa is a Nigerian singer and performer. He started music in secondary school, where he was a rapper. From rap, he got to study the increased influence of Afrobeat sounds, hence he switched to secular music.
The name Skiibii originated in his early years, when a fond uncle nicknamed the lad Skiibii. His mother caught onto it, and he began to actively used it. The uncle later revealed that ‘Skiibii’ meant “a smart and sharp person” and “mayana” is a Spanish word which means tomorrow or future.
Skiibii encountered a number of challenges when he made the announcement to his parents about his choice of career. His father was actively against his son delving into music, or getting involved in any music related activity. But he trudged on, and convinced him.
Skiibii was signed to Five Star Music on December 24, 2014, with a lavish signing event which had the hitherto unknown act receive a brand new 2014 Hyundai SUV.
Skiibii has left five-star music after spending 3 years at the record label led by E-money. According to reports, he is leaving to launch his own record label, ‘More Grace Music World’.
