Growing up was not easy for highlife act Ekene Ijemba a.k.a Humblesmith. He grew up with a whole lot as a young boy. He hawked a lot of things on the street and sold moin moin, different types of snacks and drinks.

He even sold  movies in Asaba and  a labourer at people’s sites before fame smiled on him.

He explained once how the name, Humblesmith came about “It’s been a long time I had the name. People started calling me Humble. They say I am humble and quiet and for me humble is a good name and since people chose to call me Humble, I decided to go with the name. But then, as an artiste, I had to add something to the name.

It was Humble Smart before until I went for a show. The MC wanted to introduce me and he called me Humblesmith instead of Humble Smart. After the show, I changed the whole thing to Humblesmith. I like the Smith attached to the Humble.

He is not married neither is he in a relationship. The reason for this may surprise you “Relationship is something that demands lot of attention and focus, same with music. My profession demands much focus and much time, attention and money. I cannot serve two masters at once. For now that I am still building the brand, I want to get a solid ground before all that.”
