Hailing from the motherland of Africa, Chimbiko Iche Akarolo’s story is unlike any other. Born in Port Harcourt, Nigeria to school teacher parents, education was embedded in Chimbiko from an early age and his future seemed cemented unto that path. Proudly 7 years after being married, Chimbiko became the Mayor of Port Harcourt, the third largest city in Nigeria and dedicated his service to his beloved city when tragedy struck. Within 3 months of taking office, the Mayor lost his devout wife during childbirth, due to a poor health system.

Through this tragedy and like a phoenix rising through the ashes, Chimbiko Iche Akarolo’s alter ego C-Strokes emerged. Music became the bridge between politics, philanthropy and a foundation.
