Sharing this via a recent post on his Instagram page, he explained that while growing up as a young boy in church, Psalms 117 was his favourite bible verse and everyone called him ‘117’ because of that.
He wrote: “I am called 117 because that was the only whole Bible Chapter I could memorise back in the Church. Every time I got up for a memory verse it was usually Psalm 117. Lol”
He went further to add that his real name Mimidoo and Ormi are his pet names given to him by his family. “Mimi which means ‘Truth’ is a Tiv given-name for both genders,” he added.
Killarvibez117 as he is now called believes that “every musician has a lot on the journey of his music and life in general and musician stories are best told in their lyrics. So, my fans and lovers should listen to more of my music for more about his life and stories.”
