Speaking about his name, the singer said, “Wene is my local name, the native name they know me by at home, Wene means brotherhood.

If you are a Port-Harcourt man, you will easily grasp the meaning. It means my brother from another mother.

I always use that slogan in every of my songs because ‘wene mighty’ means togetherness.”
