Iceberg Slim, born Olusegun Olowokere in New York City to Nigerian parents, is a Nigerian artiste and audio engineer. Introduced to the sounds of Sunny Ade and Shina Peters from a very young age, Iceberg Slim found a strong liking for Nigerian music.
He started writing his own music by the time he had reached High School. It started out as poetry, and served as an outlet, but then transformed into Rap/Hip-Hop. Influences like Jay-Z, Drag-On, DMX and Eminem helped shape his sound and style.
With such a love for music, there’s no question on why he decided to leave John Jay College of Criminal Justice after 2 years completed, to attend IAR (Institute of Audio Research) to then pursue a career as an audio engineer/producer.
Iceberg Slim is a force to reckon with in the Nigerian hip-hop community as evident in his collaborations with A-list artistes like Ja Rule, 2Face Idibia, Tiwa Savage, MI, Ice Prince, Vector,Sauce Kid, DaGrin, Banky W among others. He is currently signed to Tee Billz’s 323 Enterainment
He reportedly has a daughter. However, it does not look like that will be a hindrance to his relationship with Juliet Ibrahim, as the actress also has a son from her previous marriage with Kwadwo Safo Jnr.
