General Pype is a reggae/dancehall artist from Nigeria. Born in Ogun State, he was raised in Lagos. He got introduced to music through church, and in 1998, while attending secondary school, he joined an acapella group which developed into the Triumphant Chorale Voices, one of Nigeria's top classical groups. Although he flourished with the choir, in 2005 he made the switch to dancehall and reggae music and picked the name of PYPE which stands for 'Prolific Youth Positive Entertainer'.
Pype is known for doing numerous collaborations with fellow artists in different genres. At the 2009 MTVBase Music Awards he performed his track 'Teaser' together with popular Nigerian rapper MI and Lira from South Africa. In 2010 'Mara hio hio' was released, a track he recorded in Kenya with Sauti Sol and Sasha.
