Nigerian rapper Prolific Elvis was born with a speech impediment but has turned it into something positive helping and inspiring stuttering communities around the world. Prolific began rapping at twelve to express himself and to escape his impediment. He explains his hobby was driven by his immense passion for literature and reading about stutterers like Moses, Isaac Newton, Winston Churchill, Charles Darwin and Bruce Willis. These heroes helped him realize he could achieve anything he set his mind to. He is a musician, a self taught fine artist and speaks English, French and a little bit of Spanish.
