In Nigerian music, Fiokee has collaborated with artists such as Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade, Patoranking, Reekado Banks, Adekunle Gold, Flavour, Simi, and Kiss Daniel, among others.

Fiokee’s passion in music began when he was a child, when he joined a church choir and learned to sing in solfa notation. Later, he took guitar lessons from a taxicab driver, but he had to stop owing to budgetary constraints.

Fiokee began playing at churches in 2003 while studying mechanical engineering at Delta State.
