About Kano
Before making the decision to dedicate himself to music, Kano obtained a diploma in graphic design and always had a flair for visual communication and publicity. To add to his talents, Kano was potentially a very good footballer and played for Chelsea, junior hammers and Norwich before he reached 13. He eventually decided to give up his football potential in order to follow his musical aspirations; his cousins are still footballers and play for Charlton and Darlington.

His first entrance into the music industry came when he joined the Natural Artistic Sounds Touching You crew or N.A.S.T.Y for short. From here he was able to make himself noticed and was soon signed as a solo artist in order to work on his first album.

He came up with his first solo track in 2002 when he released boys luv girls which was later re-mastered by Dizzee rascal. His first solo single was #ps and Qs which was release on a 12” vinyl only. This became a huge hit and gained Kano recognition as an underground music star.

He later broke up with his record company and signed with Bigger Picture music. He has been adamant that he wishes to keep in touch with his grime music roots. N.A.S.T.Y remained popular for a while yet only on the pirate radio scene and lost support following many disputes and members leaving.

In 2004, Kano took the bold decision to turn down an offer from Hugo Boss to star as the face of their new collection and opted instead to work on his new album and tour. In 2005 he released his first widely available single named typical me which made it to number 22 in the UK singles charts.

His album was released later in 2005 and became the highest new entry into the charts, making it to number 36. He released two other singles called Remember me and Nite nite, the latter of which become a top 40 hit. His début album, Home sweet home, achieved gold status in the UK and was the recipient of much critical acclaim including reviewers of the Independent and Observer newspapers.

Kano has also had success with mix tapes and other recordings which were not made widely available. Many of his recordings were only available at his own concerts. By far his biggest success in the UK charts to date is London town, his second album which peaked at number 14 in the UK album charts. 140 grime street, his third album just missed out on a top 40 appearance at number 48.

Kano has received 4 MOBO award nominations and has won a Channel U award at the Best of British awards. He was also nominated for a BRIT award and Ken Livingstone (former London Mayor) named him as one of the Heroes of London in 2005.
