Like most rap artists around the globe, Teria Yarhere a.k.a M.trill knew that he had the tendencies of putting words together to form rhymes before he ever knew
he could rap. So when he embarked on a mission of writing lyrics for his elder brother,little did he know that he was laying a foundation for a career that
will bring him this far.
Born into the family of Barrister and Mrs J.O.G Yarhere, "Mayjah trill" joined the hip hop movement when he was in College.Although he knew how to rap, he was never on the fore front,instead he began exerting his energy into organizing hip hop shows.
After graduating from secondary school, M.trill found himself in the company of people that boosted his love for hip hop especially rap music at the university of port-harcourt. Having learnt the basics for rapping like counting bars properly and rhyming,he began to thirst for publicity.
‘I just wanted to put out one song, at least one that I could play for my kids...eventually, I did the song and when people heard it,they were really impressed’ said m.trill during a radio interview on rhythm 93.7fm in portharcourt.
His first real single ‘bounce’ enjoyed massive airplay in Port Harcourt and he struck a deal with Grafton Records after graduating from the University of port-harcourt with a Bachelor’s degree in Geology.
In 2008 he won the Channel O awards for “Best African West” category based on votes from the continent, a category which was also known as the category of death because it featured the biggest west African acts at the time, thus making M.trill one of the first African to win the channel O award without an album released (he was nominated based on the video for his first single ‘Bounce’).
These days, M.trill is busy shuffling between carving a niche for himself, performing at concerts and
His album ‘Number one’(with the hit single "beautiful") which hit the stores in October 2008 connotes that and has currently gone gold. It is no wonder he was named best male West African act at the 2008 channel O awards. M.trill has worked/performed alongside acts like Beenie Man, Akon, Junior Reid, Phoebe One, Pyrelli and other top Nigeria acts.
2009 started on a good note as he was named as
One of the hot acts to watch out for by Punch Newspapers- the most Widely-circulated daily in his native country Nigeria.
He is currently working on his second album since splitting ways with Grafton records and is getting set to drop new singles after his mixtape "ladies and gentllemen" had very good critical reviews.
