MarXemi is a Port Harcourt based Nigerian Hip Hop rapper and singer formerly known as New Eminence, a prolific word smith and lyricist. During his childhood, being the son of a Christian Preacher who was also a musician and a guitarist gave him several opportunities and privileges that saw him playing Piano, Bass guitar and doing cover performances in church services, rallies and concerts as an RnB and Pop Gospel singer. His shift to Hip Hop and Rap was induced by new company he made in summer 2009 during his later years in senior secondary school where he got engaged in several rap battles and freestyle sessions with friends and other colleagues.
