Sometimes, when Christian music is being mentioned, the average mind thinks of another boring old folks song preserved only for Sundays; sound-tracking the week’s guilt.
However, “Protek illasheva”, like a few other artistes, intends to redefine this kind of music with the trendy, pop culture touch to appeal to his core audience “The Youth” whilst renewing minds, winning and transforming souls.
Born Julius Promise Audu, Protek illeshva lives and breathes music. On his journey to transform lives through his kind of music, he has worked with great minds in the music industry such as Rooftop MCs, Bouqui, samsong, Frank Edwards, eben, Praiz, reekado banks, Joe Praise and many more. Besides been a great rapper, he is also a music producer, fashionista, actor and a model.
Some of his music exploits involves touring countries such as Germany, South Africa, Uganda, Cameroon Nigeria and Ghana while also releasing hit songs such as Amen which has different versions featuring some of the biggest names in the Nigerian Music Scene.
Protek is devoted to his local church Christ embassy and he has won and been nominated for different awards locally and globally.
