P.R.E – “I Got The Right Team and Family Around Me”
P.R.E ‘S budding music career is an example of what happens when keeping it real goes right. In September 2010, the Bayelsa native teamed up with his childhood friend Benny B to start a music group called Twisted Minds. The group released a few chart topping singles and music videos but something deep inside P.R.E knew he wanted more. At the time, P.R.E. was strictly a rapper with some of the most infectious punch lines in the game. Along the line, he wanted to pursue a solo career to truly discover his full potential and he purposely took a year off the music scene to master his craft and you could say drill himself to be a more versatile artist. “I wanted something more as an artist and not just to be known as a rapper,” the music star says. In the summer of 2012, he released his first solo single “Tatashe” and he followed it up with “Take It Up” featuring Africa’s hottest music artist of our generation Tuface . The single was produced by Leriq and the energetic single was a remix of “Take it Down”, a pet project from his time in Port Harcourt. The single “Tatashe” got a massive reception on radio and on the web even before he had shot the video and he knew immediately that this was one single he had to shoot the video ASAP. He jetted to South Africa to shoot the video and it was released in August on all music platforms and on all TV stations. It was on rotation on MTVBase, Channel O, TraceTV, SoundCity and his versatility and passion was clear. P.R.E. had been transformed from been an all out rapper to a more flexible artist who can blend RnB, Ragga, Rap and it wasn’t until he released his 3rd official single titled “Bad Oh“ featuring Knighthouse artist Phenom that it was clear enough to see that P.R.E. has fully matured into his own genre and the fans are loving it. He released the video to “Bad Oh” yesterday and already the comments are pouring in.

“The feeling is great and all I want to do is make more beautiful music” says P.R.E., born David Etete, who has finally arrived into the music scene and with plans to release another video before the next few months, P.R.E. is just hitting his stride. “I think the time is right and I have found my place in the game, I got the right team and family around me,” he says. “I want to give the fans more good music, more dope lines and more of what P.R.E is all about.” Pretty Rude Entertainer to the fullest.
