9ice (born Abolore Adegbola Akande, on 17 January 1980) is a Nigerian musician. He is legally married to Adetola Anifalaje, their Union is blessed with a daughter; Milani-Françoise Imisioluwa Akande. He is from the south-westerner part of Nigeria, specifically the city of Ogbomoso in Oyo State. He grew up in the district of Bariga in Lagos.
9ice won the award for Best Hip Hop Artist at the MTV Africa Music Awards in 2008. At the third edition of the Hip Hop World Awards held in Nigeria, he won the Revelation of the Year award and Best Male Vocal Performer. A month later at the first SoundCity Music Video Awards, he was nominated in the category of Best New Artist. 9ice’s biggest single is titled “Gongo Aso”. He is the founder of Alapomeji Ancestral Records.
9ice attended Abule Okuta Primary School and CMS Grammar School, and dropped out from his law course at the Lagos State University due to lack of funds and decided to concentrate on his music. He grew up in a polygamous home of five wives and nine children. His parents found about his singing career a year after it started around 2000. Before then, 9ice wrote his own songs, beginning at age 14. As a big fan of Pasuma Wonder, he kick-started his singing career with Fuji music. He derives his inspiration from his environment, and music from the likes of Ebenezer Obey, King Sunny Adé, Tatalo Alamu, the late Alhaji Ayinla Omowura, and the late Alhaji Haruna Ishola.
After recording his first demo, 9ice joined the group Mysterious Boys, with whom he did a couple of tracks before going on to form his own, now defunct, group, Abinibi. Having recorded his first demo, titled Risi De Alagbaja, in 1996, and his first solo song, “Little Money” in 2000, 9ice had to wait until 2005 before gaining recognition in the Nigerian music market.
