Nigerian American Pembroke Pines Florida based rapper, entrepreneur, developer and designer, SK-Mode, has taken the USA by storm, after waiting so many years to study and master the American hip hop music style, particularly Trap, Drill and R&B Music, transitioning from Afro Music to American Hip Hop music, releasing and deleting up to 2 mixtapes in the USA within 2013 to 2015, just because he believed the tune wasn't perfect yet. With his 2007 album already inducted into the U.S. Library of Congress and catching a buzz around the world, he now believes he has now mastered the U.S. music style and he is now ready to drop major hot U.S. mixtapes and albums.

SK-Mode would be placed in several rhyme contests with his cousins and that was how he got better with playing the game of rhymes and developing lyrics. SK-Mode eventually left the aunt's house after 4 years and went on to release an independed album in 2007 in Nigeria under Modebeats Entertainment now Modebeat Digital Entertainment. The album is causing a buzz till date and the same album eventually got him a ticket and greencard to the USA where he is now a citizen and fully based.
