BANDANA IS LIKE.jpg
Billy Bandana

Mr. Without Prejudice is a Port Harcourt born lyricist, poet and vocalist.

He was born on 16th Oct. 1992 as Bright Agumagu but has been known since his secondary school days as Billy Bandana. Bandana is quite versatile in his music delivery style, within the greater Hip Hop culture, localized and globalized through the waterside creek as RuggedCappingFlow in PH slang: using hard hitting multi syllabic lines, to describe in street tradition, the nature of his struggle and good times, and hope for the future using music.

His path in music has been closely linked to that of his elder brother, Pledge, formerly called Massacre within the underground music scene of Rivers state of Nigeria.

The two has been active around the Diobu or Town path of Port Harcourt, until they lost their father in 2011, when they moved to their maternal home in the Creek side of Rumuorlumeni suburb, connecting the two towns faster than the Deputy Governor. BILLY Bandana subsequently dropped from his university pursuits to pursue music full time when the group started working together, where he eventually became friends and colleague with Silva aka Few Drags and later Edward aka Ugly Screept.

Billy Bandana has done few works with Pledge, most popular of those being About me and My buddy. He has done works with Screept, Murder case, America wonder and many others, though most works he did with Silva and the Abekulaner crew.

Among the things he is currently working on is his MASQUERADE IN THE CHURCH album which is scheduled to drop before the years end. Before that will be a mix-tape CLAW TOWN, which will be released anytime soon.

Those who know Mr. Without prejudice knows what to expect, and for the fans yet to come, expect the breastfeeding of Hip Hop, staying through to the culture, the gods and the people. The album is supposed to be waterside narrative and we will not spoil the fun for you before, Stay with me here.

Bandana is here to stay and you are invited to stay and keep track of this mic fiend as he unleashes what he has been stocking for your ears and heart these long hanging years.

With pledge, your cups will never go dry, your seat will be permanently missing when he be on the mic. His style is categorized with groovy, hard banging beats, rhymes and punchlines, strictly for urban and suburban consumption, but leave no surprises unexpected as the wind often blows south from this end and you could marry the mic on your lost days.

In-between foreseeing the immediate growth and career of the group, Lossorino is also working hard on his solo career as an Artist with soon to drop singles and prepping for an album drop before June 2018. However, he will be touring with the rest of the boys in their features, group tracks and promoting single releases.

There is much to look out for as Pledge is one of the underground veterans in South South sounds and is about to make it all official for your fun and enjoyment. Between the sounds, you will find the find the nostalgia in global African sound, it is becoming difficult to differentiate the urban, tribal and diaspora and our acts are the manifestation of lessons soaked, life seen and progress pushed, always with a rhythm, I pledge to do so.
