Magixx was born to the family of Mr and Mrs Alexander in 1999. As a young boy, he was drawn to music and often spent hours listening to songs from different genres, ranging from Pop, Hip-hop, Reggae, and Highlife. Influenced by artists such as Fela Kuti, 2baba, D’banj, Shina Peters, Magixx was born on September 27, 1999, to the family of Mr and Mrs Alexander in Ogba, Lagos State, where he grew up, but originally hails from Ekiti State, Nigeria.
Born into a Christian home with Yoruba roots, his parents trained him to have a deep respect for elders and his culture. He was raised in the mainland part of Lagos and spent his formative years residing in Ogba town. He was always fascinated by music as a child and would spend hours listening to songs from various genres such as pop, hip-hop, reggae, and highlife. He was inspired by singers such as Fela Kuti, 2baba, D’banj, and Shina Peters.
Magixx decided to try his hands on music and started composing music lyrics in the comfort of his bedroom. With time, he went from just writing songs to singing them in front of a crowd at school contests and carnivals in his community. Receiving positive reviews from his audience at that time, he became resolute in his decision to pursue music full time.
Magixx comes from a family that values quality education a lot. This is why his parents enrolled him in one of the best private schools for his primary and secondary school education. He graduated from high school with good grades in his O’Levels. He gained admission into the University Of Lagos to study for a degree in Mass Communications. He graduated from the institution after four years of academic learning.
Magixx resides in Lekki, Lagos. He is a resident in Mavin’s apartment building, living together with the likes of Ruger, Rema, Ladipoe, Korede Bello, Boy Spyce, Johnny Drille, and Ayra Starr. Magixx has signed a deal with Mavins Records, which will give him more exposure. The record label would be responsible for producing his songs, publishing his songs, and promoting his brand. Magixx likes to keep a distinct dreadlocks hairdo and spots on earrings. The rising Afrobeats act is currently single, not married, no girlfriend.
Whilst Magixx was still a student at UNILAG, he was active in the school’s music scene and regularly attended parties, shows, and concerts. At these events, he never failed to display his creativity when it comes to music. This made him a notable face in Unilag’s entertainment community and helped him to build a small but strong fanbase. He started making music professionally in 2015 and he eventually got signed to MBN (Music by Nature Record label).
In 2018, he released his debut single ‘Mirror’ under MBN. In April 2019, he recorded a cover of Burna Boy‘s hit song, Dangote, and uploaded it on his Instagram page. The video went viral on the internet, getting over 35,000 views. In addition, he is known to have released freestyle versions of popular songs in the past. He was later discovered by veteran Nigerian musician, record label owner, and music businessman, Michael Collins Ajereh who is professionally known as Don Jazzy. As Mavins Record tradition is for new artists, Magixx spent a year in Mavin Records where he was groomed to become a proper artist and where he recorded his debut music project. He dropped the cover of the song, “Sinner”, on the 3rd of September ,2021. Like his other cover songs, the video spread like wildfire on Instagram, gaining over 43,000 views.
