Popular rapper and singer, Raoul John Njeng-Njeng, known by his stage name Skales has proposed to his long time Rwandan girlfriend, Neza.
Skales went down on his knees then proposed to her in a video he posted in his Instagram page and he got a big ‘YES’
Sharing the video, the 29 years old singer wrote:
“The last time I felt this nervous was my first time on stage
Badman finally got the loving
She said YES y’all.”
The talented singer, rapper and songwriter, Skales is a native of Edo State, but he was born and raised in Kaduna State. He grew up in a single-parent household with his mother, who did menial jobs to nurture him. Skales became interested in music while regularly attending his mother’s cassette store. He met producers like Jeremiah Gyang and Jesse Jagz while attending the University of Jos (Unijos).
He took part in the Zain True Search Competition during his time at Unijos and won the competition’s North Central region. Skales left Unijos and attended Lead City University, where he graduated with a degree in office management and technology. His debut single “Must Shine” was released to critical acclaim.
In an interview with This Day newspaper in 2013, Skales described himself as an entertainer whose music is influenced by his surroundings. His 2009 release “Heading for a Grammy” was inspired by Kanye West’s ‘Jesus Walks’. The experiences he was going through at the time helped shape the scope of the song, which is an ode to self empowerment.
