Onye Mmacha crooner, Prince Chijioke Mbanefo has over the years declared himself the king of highlife music in Nigeria without any official recognition.
Since the death of the king of highlife music, chief Stephen Osita Osadebe who died in year 2007, Chijioke Mbanefo has continuously been striving so hard to be recognized as the next king of highlife music and mouthpiece of all musicians.
Chijioke Mbanefo asserted that he was awarded king of highlife music ( Eze egwu) in 2016 during a live conference involving all highlife musicians, both Igbo, Yoruba and Hausa.
He claimed he was awarded king of highlife music because of his outstanding performance at the meeting.
Just as Osadebe coexisted with Oliver De Coque, Chijioke Mbanefo does not want to coexist with Onyenze Nwa Amobi and other highlife musicians who may be possible threat to his self-aclaimed title.
Is Chijioke Mbanefo the King of Highlife Music in Nigeria?
The answer is NO. Chijioke Mbanefo is not the king of highlife music and there is no evidence backing it up.
