Real D a.k.a Ahmad Yousif: Real D was born in Omdurman, Sudan, on March 26, 1984. Influenced by the east and west coast rap since the age of 12, Real D has always aspired to make it in the rap industry as a Hip Hop producer/conscious rap artist since his early days. Highly ambitious and having devotion and a fervent passion for music, he loves to mix his beats with oriental/classical samples and create unique vibes. In 2006, he graduated from Musi Technic, a private sound engineering institution, in Montreal, Canada, and then took his music production to the next level. Teamed up with his brother Mega Steal and his associate investor Julien Stephens, he co-founded RiverNile Productions and built a studio, within the mind a desire to share his love and passion for music and give the world a taste of the original style that embodies his music. It is worthy to note that Real D comes from “Real Deep in spirituality” because his instrumentals and lyrics are catchy, emotional and meaningfully deep.
Street Connect a.k.a Abdul Yousif: Mega Steal was born in Omdurman, Sudan on August 22,1981. Influenced by East and West coast styles, just like Real D, Mega Steal is also a natural artist, having studied in Fine Arts at the University of Concordia in Montreal in 2000. He also designed the Rivernile Logo. Mega Steal learned from Real D all the right basics and techniques of Hip Hop productions. From there, Street Connect created his own style, suspense, and club vibe instrumentals. He has been a priceless help for Real D on his music production and always encouraged his little brother to think big and go for the rap game. He is best described as a sampler producer, as he loves to experiment and mix with any kind of samples. Mysterious, patient and organized, Real D represents the White Nile. On the other hand, Mega Steal represents the Blue Nile, meaning he is fearless and full of surprises. The White Nile and the Blue Nile complete each other, just like Real D and Mega Steal together form a remarkable team. As the White Nile and Blue Nile merge, they are transformed into a strong river; unstoppable, unpredictable and powerful.
