From Nigeria to the Netherlands
Elvis E as a little boy would play his keyboard for more than eight hours a day. His mother was not happy about that as she believed her son could have spent a little more time studying his school work. But Elvis E only wanted to play the piano as he derived great pleasure from playing the keyboard. His mother eventually had to hide his Keyboard adapter so that Elvis E would shift his focus on other things, particularly studying his books. That action by his mother was without success, because Elvis E immediately procured a new Keyboard adapter. That shows how passionate Elvis E was about playing his Keyboard while growing up in Benin City in Nigeria. His love for music has never diminished, instead, it kept developing.
When Elvis E was only four years old, his older sister introduced him to the music world.
