Growing up in Benue State, Nigeria, Simon Praise was born on May 24, 1996.He lived in a house filled with music and love. He developed his passion for music and Simon heard everything from Gospel Icon Frank Edward and Eben to other International Megastars to pop/R&B great icons. Those different styles of music, as well as a strong presence in the church, helped to shape Simon as a singer as well as a person.
As a youngster and member of Loveworld Ministry Choir, this former Children Sunday school teacher of some years caught the attention of the well-known composer/producer O. Oladapo Fortune (a.k.a Doctor of Sound) He helped him rediscovered his talent, gave him a formal training on Songwriting and music composition, an effort that led to recording of Simon Praise first single solo release under the management of Everymedia Innovation on a small Gospel label in 2015 and that recording led to subsequent recordings with many other producers under Everymedia LTD.
A little over two years, several local assembly and congregation ministration and many powerful concerts later, gained several recognitions and successfully made the cross over to the secular and funkified recordings centered in the gospel message without watering down or compromising his original message of Christ at all.
Working on his album (Empowered) nearly a year,Simon also graduated a Refrigeration and Automobile Air Condition Expert working with a mega car servicing company in Abuja.
Simon has touched audiences all over, and they in turn have made their impact upon him.
