Poco Lee’s real name is Iweh Pascal Odinaka, and he is from Orlu Local Government of Imo State, in Eastern Nigeria. His parents are Mr Kenneth and Mrs Augustina Iweh, and he is the third of their 5 children.
Poco Lee grew up in the Ojo Area of Lagos State; which is a rather down trodden part of town.
He attended the Nigerian Navy Primary School, Ojo, and then for his secondary education he attended Command Day Secondary School, Ojo Barracks, Lagos State. Still within the same Ojo vicinity he enrolled at the Lagos State University, where he graduated in 2019, with a degree in Microbiology.
Amazingly, despite studying such a course, he never worked as a microbiologist for one day. In fact, it was during an event at the Lagos State University where he performed his signature dance step that he became popular. The video went viral, and Zlatan Ibile saw it, and then featured him on his song Zanku Legwork.
That effectively launched Poco Lee into fame; he became the hottest and most sought after dancer in Nigeria. Poco Lee has since featured on several music videos including:
Killin’ Dem –Zlatan Ibile ft. Burna Boy
Am I A Yahoo Boy? –Naira Marley
Oyi –2Face ft. H.I Idibia
Vision 2020 –Bella Schmurda ft. Olamide
Soapy –Naira Marley

Osanle –Zlatan Ibile ft. Davido

As mentioned above; he is the hottest dancer in the country; and all the biggest names in the music industry want to have him lined up next to them. Aside from his appearances on music videos, he has several solo dance videos that have rocked the airwaves; these videos have gone viral, and received large numbers of shares.
Furthermore, he has established himself as a celebrity influencer with nearly 5 million followers on his instagram account; that gives him the leverage to promote his dance videos to a very wide audience, and the platform to earn millions from endorsement deals and advertising gigs.
Poco Lee is also a popular Hypeman; he is sought after at parties, events, shows and nightclubs because he knows how to deliver; and sometimes when the beat is good, he takes to the stage himself to shake things up. His work as a Hypeman is often recorded and circulated among people where they are played for leisure, and even at parties.
Poco Lee has taken the next career step; he has produced singles in collaboration with other up coming artists; and he has really impressed with his singing skills, which in combination with his talent as a dancer could pose a significant challenge in the industry.

There are no revelations available about Poco Lees’ personal life, other than some vicious rumors on low rate blogs and websites that he is Bella Shmurda’s lover. It would be unprofessional to around spilling such baseless fabrications, and so the best we can do is wait for the man himself to make the revelation when he feels ready.
Poco Lee House
Having left his old neighborhood of Ojo Alaba, near the Okokomaiko axis of Lagos, Poco Lee has relocated to the more serene Lekki area of the state. This is a good move for his personal life as he can now have some privacy away from those who watched him grow up.
Living in Lekki also means that he can make more money as a Hypeman at the various posh nightclubs there, and he can also be close to Zlatan Ibile who helped him grow.
Poco Lee is the gold standard when it comes to dancers in Nigeria; presently there is just nobody to match his talent and flexibility. He has grown from just a side show on music videos to having a very popular Instagram account where he posts solo dances, as well as challenges. He is also a Hypeman, and now he is a musician. It is interesting to see how this multi talented young man shapes his career in the future.
