Flavour N’abania kicked off his music career at the age of 13 when he started playing the drums for hischurch choir in Enugu . The resident pastor at his church introduced him to a friend, Chris Ordor, the CEO of SoundCity Communications. Mr Ordor had just started a musical company aimed at training young musicians on the basics ofmusic and nurturing them all the way to a professional level. In 1996, Flavour was invited to join the company on an educational scholarship to study music. After 3 years of playing the drums, Flavour started playing the drums professionally. In 1999, Flavour moved on from playing the drums and started playing the keyboard. He also used to provide backing vocals for other musicians at SoundCity. Flavour eventually gained a scholarship to study music at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka but his mum was against his choice of study and intended career. Due to the unpredictable nature of a career in music, his mum wanted him to embark on something more professional and secure. In 2001 SoundCity Communications slowly started to relocate to Port Harcourt, which meant that Flavour was having to divide his time between Enugu and Port Harcourt . This proved somewhat difficult but his determination kept him focused. When the company finally relocated in 2003, Flavour had to prematurely terminate his scholarship due to his concerned mum’s refusal for him to relocate to Port Harcourt . In 2004, Flavour having terminated his music scholarship decided to sit the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and gained admission to study Business Administration in 2004. With music still in his blood, Flavour kicked off his solo live performance career at Bubbles Plaza, Enugu where he was given the name Flavour by his adoring fans. The name stemmed from the style of his music which was ‘highlife’ music with a blend of other current genres that people were familiar with. The fans called this ‘blend’ of music, his “Flavour” and he has kept the name ever since. By 2006, he had formed a band called “FLAVOUR AND CREW”
