Chris Rio – #TeamYemi

BellaNaija - #TheVoiceNigeria: A look at the Final 8 Talents

Born in Delta State, 21-year-old Chris Rio started from what him and his siblings fondly called “The American Village Choir” which consisted of his parents, himself and his siblings. They only ever performed in their living room during morning prayers. Music only became a potential career when he turned 15. Losing his father just aged 9 and the close bond they shared made him adopt his late father’s name. He says every time people call him Chris Rio now, it serves as a reminder of the legacy behind the name and a chance to be the best version of himself.
