St Aladin has been singing and performing on stage right from the last 3 years of his High School education at St. Murumba College in Jos, Nigeria.
A year after his graduation from High School in 1992, he joined and followed a reggae band to the Capital City Lagos where he continued to horn his performing and songwriting skills.
The album "It´s All About You" was recorded from 2007 to 2009 and marks the beginning of a new period in St Aladin´s life, when he found a deep spirituality that helped him master difficult times. He started composing and singing anew, and every single note and every word breathes his appreciation of God being with him.
Back to history: In the year 2000, he had the opportunity to record and release an album which was produced by O.J.B Jezreel and released on Z-Mirage Music label.
A song from the album spread like wildfire and topped Charts from North to the South of Nigeria. The song in question - Aladin Mai Gemu - became a street anthem. As a result, he had many performances with his nine piece band called "The Villagers".
It was the a dream come true! St Aladin did not know God had something more in store for him. He was already a christian but did not know Jesus Christ deeply. Despite the success, his life was in a turmoil and many questions were begging for answers. In 2002, he migrated to Austria and it wasn´t long before he started meeting and working with the Creme-de-la- Creme of the Austrian Electronic Music scene, like I- Wolf, Cay Taylan, Rodney Hunter and Megablast.
Some years after and the answers started coming into his life: " Now I know to a large extent why my road has been rough! Now I have re-discovered my voice! Now I know why I was called to sing! Now I see beyond my nose and I sing beyond my mouth! It is no longer just I who sings,but the Holy Spirit living in me. And I feel so awesome that God can use a Sinner like me to bless people! I thank Jesus for that sacrifice on the cross which paid for my freedom! A freedom that propels me to sing from the deepest corners of my heart."
