Joseph Benjamin was born to a Kogi State native father and an Anambra State native mother on November 9, 1976.
He is a well-known actor, model, singer, voice actor, and television host from Nigeria. He is best known for co-hosting MTN’s Project Fame, a talent reality show, and for his roles in the films Tango With Me, Mr. and Mrs., and Murder at Prime Suites.
Despite having had his screen debut earlier, when he made an appearance at the age of 12 in the television program Tales by Moonlight on NTA, Joseph made his film debut in Crossroads in 1991 with Ramsey Nouah and Sandra Achums.
Joseph started a career in professional singing in 2012 after singing in a choir since he was in his early 20s. That year, they worked together on the Merry Christmas album. Being an ardent Christian, he has since developed a specialty for the gospel and inspirational genre, releasing the singles Joy in 2016 and I Pour My Love in 2020. He’s made it clear that his primary role is as a musician.
The proud father of five moved to the US where he is now a resident in 2016.
