CHUKWUNONSO ONUEGBU aka Big Rheymophoebus is a gifted rapper and talented writer with a background in psychology and banking. He was raised in the suburbs of Akoka Lagos and started rapping in the late nineties. Formerly a member of the group EM‟OB – he got discovered and adopted by ace producer ID Cabasa, under who‟s tutelage he honed his skills over the years. Rheymo was a core hip-hop enthusiast/artiste until his conviction to practical Christianity. His major musical influences were from groups like Junior&Pretty, Flipmode Squad, EPMD, Dead Prez, M.O.P, Wu-tang Clan etc.
He released his first single in 2005 – „Be with you‟ produced by Dekumzy. Rheymophoebus subsequently dropped other singles like Orio in 2007; and Buga Rap & Face2d Sky in 2010 (all produced by Ex-o). It is quite appropriate to say he has come a long way. His debut album – “Rheymo Fit Bust” was eventually released in 2011 under Lanre Lawals Blarque Brotha imprint and it contained gems like “Time na Money” – which is a remake of Mike Okri‟s 1980‟s hit and “Dis Life” – which featured MTN project fame2 winner Mike Anyasodo. Rheymophoebus has keenly featured on numerous mix tapes, sound tracks and musical projects and in recent times collaborated with the likes of Olamide amongst other notables; let‟s just say his music speaks for itself. Big Rheymophoebus is also a brand ambassador for Tehid Ozonized Table Water & Trove Unleashed Consulting.
Rheymo is now committed to edifying humanity and spreading the love of God via Christian music ministration. Contact Info:

Rheymophoebus alias Chukwunonso Onuegbu releases his first offering under the genre- „Christian Rap‟. He emphatically titles this song “Jesus Pikin”; it‟s the first single off the REPENTANCE EP. He teams up with childhood friend & age long producer Ex-o to create this sound – it‟s nothing like anything you‟ve heard from Rheymo before. As usual, Rheymophoebus brings undeniable quality to the plate. This song makes a bold statement as to his new found passion. Jesus Pikin is an absolutely inspiring piece and is sure to win Rheymo many new fans whilst still appealing to some of the old ones. It‟s definitely a brand new Rheymophoebus of Jesus. Enjoy
