About the ArtistKihenaten – a songwriter/artist born in West Georgia. Started writing at the age of five and kept developing his style of writing until he chose to transform the poetry into songs. Kihenaten began writing and recording music his first year at Clark Atlanta University in 2006. He states, “Going fully into music was an easy transition after you study poetry with its rhyme patterns, themes, and structure… music actually may have made writing easier for me because your words now have a soundtrack. The rhythm helps with the flow of my work, just by hearing a track inspires what I’ll write.” Over the next few years, he constantly worked on finding his own style of writing by continuing to perform, write, record and even breaking into screenwriting. By 2009, he had enough material to construct his first project called “Ntroduction”. “Ntroduction” was composed of records Kihenaten recorded over those three years that he felt best described him and his mind state at the time. He wanted to give the listener a complete view of himself as a new artist. The project had fellow friends/ artist Lu Lu Bichon, P. Mack, Tru Melody, and Ekcel contribute towards creating it. That same year was his senior year in college and was also the year he started his first recording studio in Atlanta, GA. After graduation, Kihenaten started his company, P.O.E.T. (Power Over Everything Tangible) LLC with his partners. The artist that would represent POET is Jacob “Jay Prime” Waddy Gayton, Kihenaten Eliekim, Lu Lu Bichon, and P. Mack. POET’s film/design section is credited to Bichon Films and Yumgsta Ltd. Kihenaten also is developing the non-profit Uniphila (One Love) that will have many programs for children K-12 with sections dedicated towards helping homeless, abused women/children, and housing assistance. At this point, Kihenaten is working on three musical projects (Eustressed., Soul River Cries, and The Eliekim Project), many different screen writes, and building the brand of his organization. Kihenaten now resides in Miami, FL while his business is located in Atlanta, GA.
