About Eko Dyyda

KARIBUNI!

Eko Dyyda is one of Kenya’s hottest young gospel artists. Growing up in Nairobi’s Mathare and Huruma slums his interest in music started when he was at Eastleigh High School.

Eko, once a praise and worship leader at his local church, credits his switch to hip-hop to God:

“[I] once woke up in the middle of the night…to hear [sounds] that sounded like beats ringing in [my] head”

His big break came when he met Holy Dave, with whom he collaborated in his hit single ‘Niko Na Reason’.

Eko is an acronym of his real name (which he insists on keeping hidden). Dydda is opposite of Daddy, a nickname he was given when hewas in Mathare Youth Sporting Academy-MYSA, where he once played football.
