by Nigeria Music Network / 8,453 Views

Naeto C Biography 

Naeto C, whose real name is Naetochukwu Chikwe, is a Nigerian recording artist, Afrobeat musician, rapper, and record producer. He was born in Houston, Texas to Doctor Mrs. Kema Chikwe and Chief Herbert Chikwe, whom are of Nigerian origin. This is Naeto C biography on Nigeria Music Network.



Poster for Naeto C's Super C Season album

Naeto graduated in 2004 with a B Sc. in Biology. His original intention was pursuing a professional career within the medical field but like most creative artists, "Naeto C", opted to drop the medical career path and follow one that would be more accommodating to his creative side.

His budding sense of self-employment, being an entrepreneur and his numerous business ideas were catalysts to making a career change for Naeto C, however, furthering his educational background still remained a priority.

Naeto C's first single from his album titled, "You Know My P", "Sitting on Top" is a phenomenal piece of work, with a delightful video to go with it. The song sat on the charts from Soundcity to MTV Base for weeks. He also shot a video for his next single "You Know My P". As a producer alongside his newly discovered production team "ET-Quake" (Consisting of TY Mix and VC Perez), Naeto was able to display his production skills working with Storm artists like Sasha, Dare Art-Alade, GT the Guitarman, Disconnect, Saro-Wiwa and Nkiru.

Within a year of working with the above mentioned artists, Naeto C successfully recorded over 60 songs including his most recent album material (a bulk of which he co-produced with ET-Quake). A notable production achievement is the "I Believe" song Naeto wrote and co-produced with VC Perez (member of ET-Quake), which features himself, an up and coming R&B/Gospel artist, Sheun and the Legendary Hugh Masekela from South Africa.

Within the same year Naeto garnered a lot of experience performing, from Ikechukwu's album launch to Channel O awards to the I Believe Tour to Always promo tour with Sasha and many more gigs, in preparation for the phenomenal MTN Homecoming Concert, headlined by a popular friend, Nigerian pop sensation, D'banj.

After all this hype, Naeto released his third single, "Kini Big Deal" and it ruled the charts, clubs and everywhere else for a very long time. He then released his album and it was a huge success. It is still one of the best selling hip hop albums in Nigeria till date.

Due to the hype and demand for Naeto C, he performed at shows like The Thisday Music Festival after parties in both Washington Dc & London and The Nokia Face of Africa event in South Africa. He also performed at the Opening of Big Brother Africa and Rhythm Unplugged 2008.



Super C Season is the second studio album from Naeto C. It was released on February 7, 2011 and is available for download on iTunes.

Naeto's Super C album spawned four hit singles when it was released into the market. According to Wikipedia, the first single "Ako Mi Ti Poju" was released on September 8, 2009. Although the version released features simply the rapper, the version of the song seen on the album is an extended version which features late Nigerian rapper "Dagrin".

The song "Duro" which features artist "YQ" is the second single off the album and it was released on November 20, 2009. The track is an up-tempo party song which has Naeto C delivering three different verses and YQ lending his voice to sing the chorus. The third single released off the album "Ten over Ten" was released on August 16, 2010.

The fourth and final single off the album "Share My Blessings" was released on January 1, 2011 via the rapper's Twitter page with the rapper tweeting "Exclusively for my friends & fans: Be the 1st to Listen, download and share my Brand New Single featuring ASA...".
