NAMES: UNUOKAKE ST. PETERS DANIA
STAGE NAME: UNUO ST.PETERS (Contemporary Reggae Rock Sensation)
Unuo StPeters began his music career center stage with the Holy Rastas in Jos from where he moved to Kaduna, Nigeria. The one week contract to play at Central Hotel, one of the former British Hotels in Kano, quickly became a permanent residence for him and the Holy Rastas became St.Peters Band Experience.
Word spread about StPeters music to affiliate hotels in the Kano region and whilst playing there in 1996, the organizers of the B&H Red14 Music Concert saw StPeters perform and added him to the bill. He was the youngest artist and the only unsigned artist to appear at the Concert with an audience of over 30,000 music fans.
Wowing music fans lead to him being invited to Lagos to play at the prestigious chain of Nigeria Hotels such as Ikoyi Hotel & Federal Government Special Guest Hotel etc, where in 1999 he began recording his prolific album then known as ‘The StPeters Band Experience’. Whilst resident at the famous Ikoyi Hotel which was frequented by officials from the French Cultural Center, his music attracted offers to play at major shows linked to the French embassy, including the Miss Nigeria Beauty pageants 1999, and the Nigeria 99 Coca cola FIFA Under20’s Grand Show at National Stadium & TBS in 1999 where young stars such as Ronaldo, Okocha & Eto were on the rise.
When an educational fair came to the Eko Le Meridian Hotels & Suits, StPeters sought the opportunity to progress his musical education. His talents opened the door to study music in the UK and he traveled there to enroll. Within 3 months of his arrival, StPeters reached the final of the Chicago Rock Idol competition after winning several heats and gaining many fans too.
UK festival appearances that followed include the Chatham festival, Sellinge Festival, the Zoo8 and many gigs for charity such as for Hutanani, WEDG & Oxfam etc, across London, Broad stairs Folk week and several BBC Introducing stages across Kent also in Canterbury Christ Church University. On his travels, Unuo StPeters music once again opened doors and engaged local artistes and producers. With his 9 track analogue reels firmly in tow, he was able to finish his album in prestigious London studios in the company of industry veterans like Winston Blisset and Rob Cass. What had been the StPeters band Experience had become Handshake n’ Handcuff, the prolific debut album which took some 15 years in the making.
Now StPeters turns his attention to sharing his music with the world. As contagious charm and overwhelming charisma catapult him on to the world stage, fans old and new find their spirits uplifted and their thoughts provoked by his timeless brand of reggae rock. Sharing the big stages every year with music legends like Red Fyah and Majek Fashek, Saint P is now on the verge of achieving the recognition that his talent commands. Unuo StPeters – reggae rock legend. Watch out
StPeters is happy to be a member of AMAN and looks forward to participating meaningfully in activities geared towards the growth of the association while networking with other entertainment industry stakeholders.
