Shocka, aka Kenneth Erhahon, is a recording artist and mental health activist. Shocka started his journey in 2008 when he released the single, Beast on the loose, which led him to joining rap group, Marvel. In 2014, Shocka decided to branch out as an independent artist and released his new single, Self Love, in October 2018. His new single reflects his personal journey with mental health issues and how he has come to terms with these difficulties. Shocka believes self love is part of the cure for mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety and low self image. By teaching someone how to love and appreciate themselves – no matter what their background or identity is – he believes it will drastically improve their ability to go through life positively. Self love is humanities healer. When not creating music, Shocka loves playing football and recently has really got into table tennis.
