Pierre Alex Theodore, also known as Piyou was born in Haiti and immigrated to Montreal, Canada in 2006 with his brother and his mother. Despite his early interest in music, he only started writing and rapping in 2013 after obtaining his bachelor in Mechanical Engineering from Concordia University in Montreal. He formed the hip-hop duo P.U & Kik-E with his brother and started making music part-time while working full-time as an engineer. Through their first mixtape project, they met Karl-Henry Legagneur (KHL Productions) who they worked with on the production of about 10 songs. Piyou and KHL developed a good relationship and shared a common vision about the music business which eventually led to their partnership in the creation of the Korus Music Group in 2017. He is responsible for most of the administration of the group in terms of business development, finance, public relation, publishing and artist management.
Piyou is known for his introverted personality which also characterizes his art. He likes to filter and arrange the thoughts in his mind before presenting it to others. That is why he focuses a lot on lyrics in his music. He likes to combine a meaningful text with a catchy flow. He likes to diversify his songs and therefore likes to sing/rap on different genres of music ranging from hip-hop, r&b, pop, reaggae/dancehall, afrobeat… He is a lover of music in general and he loves to discover and try new stuff. He is not afraid to challenge himself. Although he is inspired by everything he listens, his influencers are Biggie, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Drake and J Cole.
