His birth name is not the same well-known as a stage one. He’s called Alexander Abolore Adegbola Adigun Alapomeji Ajifolajifaola. 9ice was born in 1980 in Oyo State, but was brought up in Lagos. He went to Abule Okuta Primary School and then to CMS Grammar School. The artist tried to get the higher education at the University of Lagos and get a diploma in law. However, he quitted it soon, because he decided to focus on music. 9ice grew up in a polygamous family, where there were five wives and nine other children.
His parents found out about his career only when it actually started it in 2000. At the beginning of his career, 9ice preferred Fuji music. The aspiration came to his from the surrounding environment and his favorite musicians. He used to be a part of the bands, called Mysterious Boys and Abinibi (which was his own one). He recorded his first demo in 1996 and a solo song in 2000. However, the recognition of his talent by the public took some time. And only in 2005, 9ice started to gain his fame.
