Anthony Onyewadume, popularly known as T-rex Dah Wordsmith, is a hip-hop and Afrobeats enthusiast and practitioner. He started his musical exploits at the very young age of 6. This early exposure was occasioned by his dad, who was a policeman at the time but still managed to put out two albums with his police band where T-rex's mum also doubled as a backup singer.

The wordsmith is known for his energetic stage performances, his ability to freestyle for hours, his storytelling skills, and his unique ability to deliver multi-syllabic rhymes often at an inhuman speed. His Afrobeats musical influences include Fela, Majek Fashek, Austin Power (his dad), Ras-Kimono, Junior & Pretty. Likewise, his hip-hop inspiration comes from the likes of Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap, Big Pun, Big L, Biggie, Tupac, Run da Mc, Rakim, Nas, Eminem, Will Smith, Slick Rick, Das EFX, Krayzie Bone, Busta Rhymes, Cannibus and DMX.
