Richie Chinedu Benson Nwobum (born June 6 1997) better known by the stage name 'Richie Benson' is a Nigerian singer, rapper, songwriter, and producer. Richie Benson was born in Kaduna State, Nigeria and is the first of four boys from real estate agent Benson Nwobum and successful business entrepreneur Ego Benson Nwobum. The 20 year old was born and raised in the northern parts of Nigeria attending middle school at Sacred Heart Primary School before moving to the capital of the country, Abuja to complete high school at British Nigerian Academy.
Richie Benson claims to have started singing at a very young age but decided to pursue a career in music while in high school in 2012 at the age of 15. He went by the stage name 'Pilate' and released his first ever single "Vanessa" which gained a lttle buzz and also featured rapper TC who attended the same high school. He then went on to join Dope Music Group (DMG); a groupmade up of affluent teenage boys from the capital popular for hosting the coolest events in the city. Under DMG, he released another single "Tinko Tinko" with fellow DMG member Finna.
Although he started to get a lot of local buzz around him, Richie Benson decided to take a break from music because he felt he was too young for a serious career in the music industry and also retired the stage name Pilate on his social media in the process.
Richie Benson graduated high school in 2014 and moved to the US a year later to study medicine at University of Texas at Arlington. At school, he met up with rapper TheBlackBoyJohn who had a small bedroom studio set-up which they used to make several demo tracks. Richie Benson later moved in with TheBlackBoyJohn to concentrate on his recording and production skills. After self producing countless demos, he decided to resume his career in music in 2017. In March 2017, while at another friend's home studio in Arlington he met up with Arnold Tientcheu. Arnold decided to support Richie Benson's music financially and they decided to start a record label together.
