Ikemefuna P. Nwabueze a.k.a Z-Lous was born in Nigeria, but he is currently based in one of the most eclectic and forward-thinking cites in the world, New York. Here’s where he continues to work on his music; a driven blend of hip-hop and Afrobeat with a strong, positive and empowering Christian message!
Z-LOUS, a Christian artist, and C.E.O of the independent record label Most High Entertainment Records is a man on a mission, whether he’s onstage bringing an audience to its feet, or at conferences inspiring others to live a lifestyle of purpose, and that which pleases God. His faith and integrity as a performer is consistent off stage and in his media presence.
As an artist, Z-Lous truly transcends genres definitions and other constraints, utilizing his God-given talent for music and performing in order to educate, engage, entertain and minister to people in the name of what Christianity stands for!
A praise and worship leader at Winners Chapel International New York, Z-Lous started singing at the young age of 7 in the children’s choir at his local church in Nigeria. He is influenced musically by gospel greats such as Kirk Franklin, Canton Jones, Panam Percy Paul, Chris Tomlin and Israel Houghton.
He has shared the stage with several Christian music heavy weights, and has ministered and performed at concerts and well-known churches across the U.S.A. and Nigeria, including the world-renowned Winners Chapel Int’l headquarters. Located in Lagos, Nigeria, it is known to house 50,000, with several thousands at the overflow, and is reputed as the largest church auditorium in the world by the Guinness book of records.
Back in 2013, Z-Lous released his debut album, “Going Higher” which rocked many gospel stages, radio stations, and reached the Top of many charts in 2013 and 2014, but he followed up with the release of a new recording in July 2015, which received great reviews from music lovers as well as critics around the world. The critically acclaimed new album “Blessed Child” features 12 new tracks that are all about blending hip-hop with praise and worship music in a very innovative way to exalt God. Great music behind a great message. How could it get any better?
