Chris Rio, a young and talented 18-yr old singer/songwriter/recording-artiste with a great passion for music . He’s the last but not the least of a family of 7, and he has been active in music from a very young age. As a 3-yr old, he loved his toy guitar and would sing and dance with his family watching Ron Kenoly’s live concerts. His talent grew over the years with listening to a wide variety of artistes.
He gave his heart to God at age 15, and that marked a turning point for him. He wrote his first two songs just a day after, and has been writing great songs since then (over 70 now). He also wrote with a good friend, Alen,in high school, and they plan on joining forces on the first album.
Chris Rio is currently a 300 level student of Covenant University, Ogun State, studying Biotechnology. His message of uplifting and spreading hope to the hopeless is what makes him not just a singer, but a minister of God.
He has been blessed to meet a few musicians, the likes of Dvyne (with whom he made his first song “So Good”), Pokaface, Frank Fytts, Provabs & Ojay (who featured Chris on the #FORGIVENMIXTAPE) just to mention a few. He is a worship leader, following after his mentor, Mali Music, in spreading the good news with simplicity but with power. He has also been associated with L37, the producer and owner of the L.A.M.P. House Studios in Lagos and upcoming EDM producer, SkweiRd, with whom he made hit song “Irrevocable” (to be released soon).
Personally, he is a quiet person, and a little shy too, but has a very cool personality. He keeps working tirelessly to become better, channeling all his talent to becoming a distinct artiste in the midst of so many. A very passionate artiste is Chris Rio.
