BoySpyce was born Ugbekile David Osameke in Lagos Nigeria, an indigene of the historically rich Benin city in Edo state. Boy Spyce is a mix of a wise old spirit in the body of a 20 year old and an unapologetic self-aware young lad.
Growing up as the last child among older siblings meant looking up to them in some aspects, his first introduction to music was through his older brother who was in a boyband at the time. Boy Spyce claims watching him come up with melodies, putting words together in a song, going to the studio and seeing him rehearse with his other band members was quite fascinating which made him start writing songs. His brother was his first music tutor.
