BIOGRAPHY OF LUISBENZ
WHAT IS YOUR NAME?
Joshua Chuks-uguru but also know as Luisbenz, This name is special to me because the name chose me, It just came to me one day while I was meditating and it’s been history since then.
WHAT IS YOUR PREFERRED GENRE OF MUSIC, YOUR STYLE OF MUSIC
I don’t have a preferred genre of music I listen to all and sundry that’s why when you listen to my music you can hear varieties of sounds, this is because I listen to everykind of sound, regular nd irregular.
My genre of Music I would say is Afrobeat in a diversified and improved form for now.
I plan to create my own genre of music someday.
WHO IS YOUR BIGGEST INFLUENCE IN MUSIC
My influences change because I grew up in Nigeria listening to Afrobeat, so I looked up to people like Wande coal, Psquare, Mo hits and then WizKid came along, I also lived in the U.S for quite sometime and had other Influences there the likes of Pharell Williams, Drake and others, the I’ve also been to the Arab countries and European countries and had other Influences.

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP, SCHOOL/ WORK AND CURRENTLY RESIDE
I grew up in port Harcourt, Had my primary school education here, then my high school in Delta state and now university education in Delta state, I currently reside in Port-harcourt.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING MUSIC?
Music I would say is something I was born with, I remember back in the days doing some freestyles for my siblings, uncles and aunties and even then when I didn’t understand what I was saying they always clapped for me so I knew I had something, I will say I took music seriously in high school where I created a gang with two of my friends and we became the wave of the whole school back then, but I started Music professionally in 2016.
PAST INFLUENCES AND AFFILIATIONS
Well I’ve been influenced greatly by artistes like Psquare,Wande coal,WizKid, Bob Marley, Fela and Mama G a.k.a patience ozokwor, I’ve had affiliations with a few international labels but I don’t think that’s what is best for me right now, I’m very skeptical about who I work with, I would say they didn’t have the same visions and goals as me so I opted out.
WHAT YOU AIM TO ACCOMPLISH WITH THIS FORTHCOMING PROJECT
Well this project I would like to describe as the Beginning of a New era for me, I’m going to be breaking new dimensions and taking over the world with this project, This project is dear to my heart, Because each track is something everyone will be able to relate with, This project will bless everyone who listens to it as well as it will bless me and open new doors for me in Jesus name, Amen.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING CURRENTLY
Well I’m fully focused on my music career for now, There are so many other things coming, but everything will be unfolded with time.
