Meet Ike Ndolo

Ike Ndolo was born in Missouri, after his parents moved to the United States from Nigeria.

In 2009 Ike released his first record, “We are the Beggars” produced by songwriter and producer Robbie Seay. “We are the Beggars” climbed to number 4 on the Christian iTunes charts. Now Ike is back with his second studio album “Rivers” recorded in Nashville and produced by Paul Mabury.
