Christian WHY'EL Debra (born 1991 in Toronto, Ontario) has been composing music since the tender age of 8. His early inspirations include names such as "Lil Bow Wow" and "Lil Romeo". However, being raised in a Christian household, his music was heavily influenced later on by Gospel Gangstaz, T-Bone, Kirk Franklin, Cross Movement and the likes.
WHY'EL has proven to be a versatile and all-around artist, reflecting majorly his faith and morals on his music while maintaining respect and appreciation from more mainstream artists. With collaborations with notable musicians such as "GEMSTONES" (formerly of Lupe Fiasco's F&F Label), music producer J Staffz, as well as producer K Beatz, it is no surprise why this artist reaches diverse audiences and captures interest with his musical creativity. His song productions along with his stage presence have been described as "enticing and exciting" while one artist review stated "...he's like that cool high school teacher. He reminds the culture of what's important but does it in such a fun way you just can't refute and/or ignore".
WHY'EL records as an indie artist under the label "IV Entertainment", an entertainment entourage he began in 2008 helping manage and develop other artists . He is currently working on his first solo studio release, an LP entitled "Patiently Waited" which he intends to release before January of 2013.
