He was born on the 27th of September 1990 and raised in Abuja Nigeria and developed an interest in music at the very young age of four. Being born into an orthodox Christian family helped his music. He was introduced to music by his mum who also taught him sofa notes. Just like every other Christian family, they would do the morning devotion every morning and during this time they usual sang and praised God together as a family. With his new found love and increased interest in music as he aged, he joined their church choir, the Saint John’s Anglican Church Choir at the age of eight and would go on to join the popular Deacons Kids Band.
He has a law diploma from the University of Abuja and a Higher National Diploma in Office Technology from the Kaura Namoda Federal Polytechnic in Zamfara state.

Speaking to Daily Sun on his popular record “You Are Great” came about, Steve Crown explained that the record was borne out of him trying to ask himself questions and also trying to find the right answers to these questions. The questions he asks himself centre around the existence of man, how the sun, birds, sea and life, in general, came about. He continues to explain how much he is intrigued about time and season, miracles and how they happen, people get sick or are in a difficult predicament but because they prayed to God about it their problem was solved. He goes on to acknowledge the fact that although many prophets encountered God and wrote about it and we can now read from the bible, there is much more about God that humans can express or explain.
Steve Crown says he doesn’t care about commercial songs and according to him, he was surprised that his record “You Are Great” and subsequent records became a hit. He is now one of the most prominent artists sustaining gospel in the midst of other numerous genres thriving in the country.
