“Everyone wants to achieve success in whatever field; I am actually toeing that line, and to see that my dream come through, I want to fulfill reality, and not just coming into reality. I want the music label to stay longer and stronger. The music label will spread to the whole of Africa given the structure on ground and I am going to work with other music labels that are already on ground,” Clarke added.

F2 on the other hand is from Ehime Mbano, Imo state. Music started naturally with the young talent at a very tender age as he has always been an ardent lover of everything that has sound and produces beautiful melody. He fell in love with the guitar along the way and started exploring through the musical instrument as a minor. Immediately after his primary and secondary education, he moved to Federal University of Technology, Owerri where he studied Prosthesis and Orthopedic Technology.
