Stidman was born on May 31, 1982, in Lagos State to a large family where he is the last child of seven. His mother is a trader and his father an auditor. Stidman was part of a church choir at a very young age where he, according to him, "learned the rudiments of music". He has a degree in Computer Science from Lagos State University and was in a programming job at Dangote group before he decided to focus on his music career in 2017.
He revealed his dad was very understanding when he told him about quitting his programming job, but his brother, who is a programmer, did not accept the decision. Eventually, his mother convinced his brother and changed his mind when Sitdman's single “BINU BINU” gained success.
In 2008, Stidman produced his debut single "Binu Binu" that gained him attention in Nigeria. In 2010, he released his first studio album "Makin’It" via his self-started platform Boogiedot Entertainment. In 2011, Stidman started the Music blog BOOGIEDOT to help promotes upcoming as well as established artists. In the same year, he released music videos for his singles Good Love and Mama (featuring Rayce) from his debut album Makin' It and single "Don't Let me down". In 2017, Stidman left his programming job to focus on his music career.
"I’m a versatile artist and I do the kind of songs that people will love. When you feel my vibes, you will want to pause and play it intermittently to appreciate my wordings. Whenever I am composing my songs, I think a lot and I used the words I love so that my people out there will appreciate it. That is what distinguishes me from every other pop artiste in Nigeria." - Stidman
In 2018, he released another single titled "High" which later appeared on the Reverbnation London Chart, peaking at number 4.
On Valentine's Day 2019, Stidman released his EP "Legit". He explained that he wanted to celebrate the time in the year where love is recognized. To celebrate the EP, he organized the LEGIT Valentine Party that featured appearances from other Nigerian artists like "Sossick", "Qdot" and many others.
