“I have released about 36 songs, I will soon present them officially, though I am a Marine Engineer trained in Ghana, I have passion for music in order to achieve a better society and discourage our youths from societal ills.

“I have just released a song titled, ‘Blessing’. I am working with my group to ensure that our youths are engaged meaningfully, at the same time, I am managing my marine firm in Port Harcourt,” stated Boukoru.

According to the young singer, he is from a family where music thrives as his dad was a trumpeter.

“I moved a step further by having a musical outfit. “I have also done a song in Ijaw dialect, the first one titled, ‘Parabo’ meaning ‘Come out’, and many others. Our outfit is aimed at helping the youths to develop their talents,” explained Boukoru.
