About Emeka DMD
EMEKA Anthony Igbonekwu is a Nigerian contemporary Christian, singer-songwriter, producer, businessman and recording artist, generally referred to as EMEKA DMD.
Emeka DMD was born in the early 80s into the family of Mr and Mrs Ferdinand Igbonekwu. Back then in Assemblies of God church Ugwunobankpa in Onitsha now known as SATELITE Assembly, Emeka started singing and playing the native drums in the children department.
Years later, he relocated to Lagos for a greener pasture and to answer his divine call in the music ministry. He joined the youth mass choir of Assemblies of God Lagos mainland district. Within that time in Lagos, he created a group called De Music Designers (DMD) with his friends.
According to EMEKA, “We were doing the Work of God by going round some churches as a band to minister without asking for much money because of the passion we had and still have for Gospel music.”
