phynoPhyno (Real Name:Chibuzor Nelson Azubuike) aka “Man of the Year” started up as a producer way back in 2003. Fast forward over a decade of passion and  hard work, Phyno has grown from ‘underground hype’ to a household name in Nigeria and beyond.

Phyno grew up and also schooled in Enugu. He graduated from IMT (Institute of Management and Technology, Enugu) with a degree in Public Administration. This man of the year hails from Anambra state and is the 4th child in a family of 5.

As a Producer and having produced for the likes of Timaya, Flavour, Ruggedman, 2Shotz, Bracket, J Martins and Mr. Raw, Phyno found his way around the industry and decided to move to Lagos in 2007 so as to increase his impact.

By 2010, the eccentric producer decided to try his hands on the other side of the booth, starting his own Rap career, and Indigenous Igbo Rap has never been so cool ever since. He has had multiple hits to his credit as a producer and rapper. Some of his hits include Ghost Mode, Parcel, Man of the Year, 30-40, etc

Phyno released an 18 tracked album early this year titled “No Guts, No Glory” which has further engraved him in the industry. You can find a review of the album here.
