Kehinde Oladele Arifayan popularly called Keybone is a Nigerian rap and
hip-hop artist, from Ikere-Ekiti, Ekiti state. He was born on the 17th of
April, 1984 in Lagos state into the family of Mr & Mrs. Arifayan and he is
the third in a family of six.
Keybone had his educational foundation in Mate Nursery & Primary School,
Ekiti State Government College, Ikere-Ekiti, Jextoban Secondary School,
and a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry at the University of Lagos,
Keybone’s interest in music began at a very tender age by making playlists
of his favorite artists in cassette tapes by recording songs played on
radio networks. He is a prolific Hip-hop and rap lyricist with a distinct
style. With releases such as Look At Me Now, Let Me Go and When I Am High,
which are singles off his debut studio album, Going Pro, Vol. 1, this is a
testament to his pen game and lyricism.
In the Mid 2000s, Keybone started a rap group with his friend, Kel FST
named Urban Journalists and worked with music producers like Skobs, MLV,
Sarz, Laylow, Frenzy, and Jospo. In 2015, Keybone released a compilation
album titled Old Tapes which features artists like Ella Nnabuchi, Adonis,
Orezi, Kel FST, Nedola, Ain Mosni, and Cross Tha Boss. He also released a
solo studio album in the same year, titled Going Pro, Vol. 1 which
features music production from Dr. Jazz, Kimzbeatz, Vugar M Beats, and
Zoocci Coke Dope.
Keybone’s release titled Your Number One off Going Pro, Vol. 2 has been
widely accepted by tastemakers and program directors in various radio
networks. This acceptance has opened new doors, introduced his sound to
new markets, and earned more audiences in these demographics.
Keybone is discreet about his relationship status, and this makes it
difficult to know who he is dating at the moment.
Keybone lives a simple life and at the time when this post was made, his
net worth is under review.
