He was born by September, in the year 1980 with the aide of being a reggae messanger.Founder of ’’Mallow Ryder Crew, founder of Mallowrythm Sound all the way from the jungle of Lagos state. All my life has been music all the way from Lagos State. I was a choir in my church Gospel Faith Mission, Inc. Ajangbadi assembly
" I was only 12years old when my pastor made me the head of the church choirs because i was the youngest amongst the choirs. This way i started serious work in writing my lyrics. Benny Paladin was inspired by Gospel songs and also Zion gate songs.
Gradually, i was exposed to the world of Rhythm and Blues although Hip-Hop was my favourite but my parent never wanted me to go astray by loving Hip-Hop. My father was one old time singer.
He was a music lover when he gave birth to me and he had always supported my missions by letting me out for Hip-Hop shows and concert at Night. By this means, I got exposed to the musical world and then chose to be one lyrical messenger who will always preach and then people would listen.
Changing people’s live with my rythm was my basic aim. Every young around me where inspired because, I was the only Dj with social attitude pon mi ghetto yard. Always making them realise that music is a mission it’s not for fun or to satisfy your conscience. Music has change a lot of things in my life what I mean is that, it has made me realise that life not a just, it is all about sociality, reality, and humanity.
My first time to be exposed to the mix was 2004 when i had an opportunity to be part of the talent hunt in my neighbourhood, some around around the city of Lagos. I won the prize to be the best performed artist organised by one big radio house called Ray power 100.5fm,it is called the ‘Ray Power Grand slam talent hunt’ at the Glimpses Night club,Ojo.I then moved to Festac town in Lagos to see what i could fetch out with my talent. There i met so many underground Mc’s that appreciated my style.
By the year 2002, I had a trip down to a French country called Benin Republic, where i met my destiny to France.Here i got hooked with Youth vision sound system and Reality crew(France).Then it was all about sound system business
with Mallowryderz soldier consisting of Benny Paladin,Wonda Prince,Habbeyiano,Kaizy,G°,Bone Speak&Virus,Black Prophet,B-Clean,Jean Emmanuel,Selecta Stephane,Lilian,Leny,Selecta Seb.
Here i started to promote the reggae music and it was accepted by the massive after two to three years in Cotonou.I had my first hit single titled ‘‘Nah yu dive pass’ been produced by Dj Snoop Di Damager, da underground productions. Later lunched my second single titled ‘‘Suffering Dey’’produced and mixed by Sheriff & Damager, from the famous ghetto city called AJEGUNLE town in Lagos state.
Had so many interviews on Radio station in Benin Republic, Ghana, Niger Republic. In Benin Republic, I was recommended as the best reggae artist since the year 2002 from Mallowryderz crew.
