He first attended St. Martin De Porres School in Dansoman, where he excelled as a top student and later transferred to Jack and Jill where he completed his Junior Secondary School level. He then gained admission to the Presbyterian Boys' Secondary School, where he discovered his musical talent. After high school, he pursued a degree in economics and political science at the University of Ghana, Legon.

During his first year in the university, EL signed to Jayso's Skillions Records alongside other notable young Ghanaian underground artists like Gemini, Kevin Beats, Killmatic and Lil Shaker, and helped Jayso co-produce the Skillionaires Demotape.

He went as far as releasing a single, "Chale (So Fli)", with Jay Foley, Wolf and Kwaku T (remix). However the mixtape was never released.
