Emeka Akumefule, known professionally as Blaqbonez, a Nigerian rapper signed to 100 Crowns, an imprint of Chocolate City
Blaqbonez whose real name is Emeka Akumefule revealed the hilarious way he got his name.
Blaqbonez during an interview was asked what inspired his stage name, “Blaqbonez” to which the rapper honestly replied that he stole the name from a friend.
Blaqbonez posted a clip of the interview on his Twitter page and also shared a friend’s post telling the full story of how Blaqbonez took the name from him.
The friend who goes by the name Attat said that after writing JAMB exams, he and his friends formed a crew but faced challenges trying to pick a name.
He said they finally picked names based on their physical feature, his Blaqbones because he was skinny and dark-complexioned.
When Attat met Blaqbonez, he was going by different funny rap names like Mc Florist and they bonded over their love for M.I Abaga.
One day, Blaqbonez told Attat that he would be stealing the name “Blaqbones” from him and Attat decided to gift him the name as a birthday gift.
