Ben is a native of Trinidad & Tobago, however he was raised in Northeast Baltimore, MD. As a teenager growing up Nesfa faced temptation on all sides do things that were not wholesome. Ben found himself fighting, robbing and even getting put out of school for his foolish actions.
"I knew I had to make a change but I just didn't know where to start." During his senior year of High school Ben surrendered his life to God and he has never been the same. "God had to strip everything that I deemed to love, just so I can focus on him. Ben always had an ear for music as a whole at an early age.
"The purpose of the music that I make is to influence, edify, and encourage through the spreading of the Gospel and his life experiences through rap". Currently he has made several songs. Although his music is founded on biblical principles it is not only limited for the ears of people of faith, but those that are not within any faith background.
His music address's relevant situations that people are dealing with and it aims to give listeners hope from a complete Biblical perspective.

"Cries of the city is Ben's most popular video that he has produced which entails the poverty stricken life of East Baltimore (Down Da Hill).
