Albert now took him to his church, Methodist Church, Olowogbowo, Lagos Island, Lagos State, Nigeria were Chibuike received his first musical lessons and from thence he developed interest in music. It was also at this period that Chibuike joined the St. Peter's Anglican Church Choir, Ijeshatedo, Surulere, Lagos State, Nigeria were also his parents worship in.
As a choir boy, he started as a Treble singer under the choirmastership of Mr Chibu Ekeh, and in 1989 when his voice could not carry the high pitch he was moved to the alto part. This was his last choral part before he now became the first employed Church Organist of St. Peter's Anglican Church, Ijeshatedo, Surulere, Lagos State; then Mr Emeka Nwokedi was the visiting Music Director/ Choir Trainer who also contributed into the live of Chibuike.
