Mashood Adeola was born in Ebute-Meta Lagos, and he still lives there with his parents and siblings. He attended Kings College Lagos for his high school studies.
However, we do not yet know his exact age; based on the minimal evidence we have, he is assumed to be between the ages of 18 and 20.
During an exclusive interview on NaijaLoaded’s “Me, Myself, And I” show, Hotkid revealed that he began performing music when he was nine years old. Patoranking was also mentioned as a big influence in his decision to pursue his musical goals. His big break came when he acquired a record deal with Dr. Dolor Entertainment, the same label that catapulted Teni Makanaki to fame. On November 4th, 2019, he was signed when Dr. Dolor saw his incredible cover of Teni’s song “Case.”
