Heph B a.k.a. the “Linkupbwoy” was raised between New York, New Jersey, and the African Country of Nigeria. Music was always a part of the home wherever he lived, and at the age of 5, he discovered a love for playing the Drums. By the age of 11, he expanded his talents by learning to play the Piano. His musical tastes were also developed at a young age. He developed a love for the African sounds through his upbringing with his Grandmother in Nigeria, and experienced Dancehall, Reggae, Hip Hop, Pop, R&B, and Gospel music while living in the US.
In his early years as a Recording Artist, Heph B started out as a Gospel/Inspirational Rapper. While the career path gave him minor success and buzz in the Tristate Area, it wasn’t until his relocation to Houston, Texas where he transitioned into a more diverse Artist, tapping into his roots and culture, and embracing the sounds that raised him. Blending Dancehall, Reggae, and Afrobeats into the sound called AfroDancehall, and his Da Anointed Entertainment label established, he ventured into a new journey in music.
In the years that followed his rebrand, he found success with the single, “Best Feeling”. The track was featured on his “50/50” EP, and it caught the attention of many, earning music chart placements in various parts of the world, being featured on the celebrity album “Miungu ya Muziki”, movie soundtrack placements, and landing him a nomination at the 2020 BET Awards where he also performed. After releasing more singles following “Best Feeling”, Heph B found success again with the single, “HIDE”. The track gained him more music chart success, and helped to build great momentum for the release of his latest album, “AMARII”.
He has shared the stage and collaborated with the likes of Wizkid, Burnaboy, Davido, Romain Virgo, Vybz Kartel, and Qraig Voicemail among many others. He reigns as Houston’s King Of AfroDancehall, and is on a mission to bring his unique sound to more places around the world.
