He was born on January 11, 1998 in Jirapa, born to Mr Cosmas Languon & Mrs Elizabeth Muanah and places sixth (6th) in a family of six (6) siblings. As far back as age seven (7), young Shaqkingk realized his love and passion for creative arts, having successfully scripted and acted for the drama club of his school and also put words together in a rhythmic manner.
Since then, the young chap has never stopped singing both songs that he has written and composed and those by artists he is influenced by in an industry flooded with people trying out a number of things in a bid to establishing their identity; Shaqkingk stands as one unique artiste with a sense of direction and purpose. He recorded his first track in an unprofessional studio 4 years ago with another upcoming artiste, Slizzy tagged New Dance.
Thence, Shaqkingk has never looked back. Making the history surrounding the emergence of the Upper West Region legend was when in first year in Senior High School, Shaqkingk met up with a professional music producer/sound engineer, Ferdiskillz who at the time was the most trending beat maker, who produces the likes of Gally, Gamebwoy, Ojay etc.
His first radio hit, Go Down was released in first year at Senior High School plus several others that followed up later. By third year, he had amassed for himself a flaming underground popularity and went on to release another hit titled Guy Guy Boys which held him up years after leaving High School in 2019.
Thereafter, things happened in quick succession and Shaqkingk soon started work with Ferdiskillz studios in 2017. He later joined and was signed to Figa Nation and Gifts Records at Wenchi in the southern part of Ghana and where he won his first award at Nkranza (NKZ) as best dancehall artiste of the year 2018 and remained there until 2019, when he decided to put into practice all he had seen and learnt when he formed his own record label called Shaq Empire. Knowing the direction he was heading with his career, Shaqkingk worked day and night with his team to ensure that they achieved the best.
Today, the result of hard work is certainly paying off for the young chap with collaborations with nationwide acts from Ghana such as Plus H, D Wise, Filla Bwoy and many others.
