Emeka Rises to #1 on Omaha Music Chart

Omaha hip-hop artist reaches the top of ReverbNation's local music chart

Omaha, NE, December 06, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Hip-hop artist Emeka has shot to the top of ReverbNation's Omaha music chart, which includes all musical genres [reverbnation.com/emekamusic]. The feat comes just days after releasing "Rockstar," the first single from his debut album, "Training Camp." Before the release of his popular new song, Emeka had been ranked 80th. "Training Camp" was released to the public for free on December 15th.

Though most of Emeka's 48,000 Twitter followers know him as a fierce defensive lineman from the University of Notre Dame, his music reveals his introspective side. "Training Camp" is intended to create a fun, relaxed atmosphere, but it would be a mistake to underestimate Emeka's determination. He is highly driven to reach the level of success that eluded his football career. "Training Camp" is inspired by Emeka's life as a college student. It also examines the intriguing mind of an athlete who did not reach his football dreams.

Emeka Nwankwo was born in Boston, MA and raised in Miami, FL. He currently resides in Omaha, NE. As a son of Nigerian immigrants, Emeka grew up listening to primarily Nigerian gospel music and Bob Marley, which have influenced his outlook on music and on life. Emeka's new song, "Rockstar," was inspired by his belief that anyone can be a rock star, regardless of their size, color, or location on the globe.

"Being a rock star is a lifestyle," Emeka said. "It's about embracing the moment and embracing life. It's choosing to be your own person without worrying about what other people think. Most people don't correlate the term "rock star" with being from the south, but I'm from the south and I live the rock star lifestyle. I want people to know that they can too."
