Efu ódò 2010 Naeto pursued an MSc efu úkocha Energy ye í University of Dundee efu Scotland.[3]

It was reported in the Summer of 2013 by his mother that he was attending the University of Oxford in England studying "a course in Energy Economics" however there was no further elaboration on this course.[4]

On November 17, 2020, Naeto C graduated with a Master's of Science in Energy Economics from the University Of Dundee, Scotland.[5]


Storm Records, (a record company based in Lagos, Nigeria) had been trying to sign the World Famous Akademy for some time, and since Naeto had decided to pursue his career as a musician he agreed along with the rest of the WFA. But they did not return to Nigeria until early 2006, when Ikechukwu released his debut album, Son Of the Soil. That album laid the grounds for Naeto C and the WFA. Working as an in-house producer with his newly discovered production team "ET-Quake" (consisting of TY Mix and VC Perez), Naeto was able to display his production skills working with Storm artists like Sasha, Dare Art-Alade, GT the Guitarman, Disconnect, Saro-Wiwa and Nkiru. Within a year of working with the aforementioned artists, Naeto had successfully recorded over 60 songs including his sophomore album material (a bulk of which he co-produced with ET-Quake).

A notable production achievement is the "I Believe" song Naeto wrote and co-produced with VC Perez (member of ET-Quake), which features himself, an up-and-coming R&B/Gospel artist, Sheun and Hugh Masekela from South Africa. Within the same year Naeto garnered a lot of experience performing, from Ikechukwu's album launch to Channel O awards to the I Believe Tour to Always promo tour with Sasha and many more gigs, in preparation for the phenomenal MTN Homecoming Concert, headlined by a popular friend, Nigerian pop sensation, D’banj. [citation needed] "Naeto C" recorded over 50 songs for his debut with production that transcended the hip hop sound of that time. From the Fela inspired "Lagos City Hustla" the most articulate reflection of Hip-Hop/Afro-beat till date to the down-south-melody-stricken first single "Sitting on Top", Naeto C has broken all boundaries and surpassed more limits than any up and coming artist, lyrically and production wise according to MO HIT RECORD. His debut album You Know My "P" was released in May 2008. As of 2018, Naeto C's net worth was estimated to be $7.5 million[citation needed] and he was ranked among the richest and most influential artists in Nigeria.

Personal life

Naeto C is married to Nicole Chikwe and they have three children.[6] His wife described him as a 'perfect husband' despite his celebrity lifestyle and that has sustained the family and marriage. She said this in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in 2019.[7]
