Bobby V (also known as Bobby Valentino and Robert Wilson) was born in Jackson, Mississippi, and first achieved attention as a member of the R&B group Mista in the mid-90s. Their debut album was a commercial failure, and the group never published a follow-up.
In 1997, the group’s management broke down, and the members went their own ways. Rather than pursue a music career, Bobby V went back to school and earned a degree in Mass Communications at Clark Atlanta University, all the while sending out more demo tapes. Puff Daddy noticed him and signed him to Chaka Zulu’s Disturbing Tha Peace Records label.
It was in 2005 that he published his debut album. When he released his debut album, he had a number-one single and a gold record. His third and fourth albums have subsequently been published, with “Fly on the Wall” being the most recent in March of 2011.

Facts & Trivia:
Among the most well-known singer-songwriters today. Also in the top ten list of most renowned British-born celebrities. Every year on the 22nd of June, Bobby Valentino celebrates his birthday.
For unpaid royalties from his contribution to the 1993 song “Young at Heart” penned by Bobby Bluebell and Siobhan Fahey of the Scots pop band The Bluebells, Valentino won a legal fight in 2002. To win the case, Valentino had to prove that Hodgens had not composed the song’s characteristic violin section and that Hodgen’s violin part constituted a significant change to the song.
After Bananarama first recorded the song in 1983, the Bluebells reissued it with a violin accompaniment in 1984, which peaked at No. 8 on the UK Singles Chart. The session price for Valentino was £75. Only in 1993, when the record was re-released and topped the Billboard Hot 100, Hodgens claimed that Hodgens was responsible for the song’s success because of an ad for Volkswagen.
Valentino’s performance of the violin part in court convinced Mr. Justice Floyd to decide in his favor and award him damages of £100,000 in damages. Hodgens attempted to appeal the decision, but it was unsuccessful. Another statement from Crosby and Hope will appear on the band’s fourth album Pat-a-Cake, Pat-a-Cake, Pat-a-Cake, due out in June 2011.
Valentino was a member of Wangford’s band for five years, during which time the group released three albums, filmed two television series for Channel 4 (The A-Z of C&W and Big Big Country), and performed and wrote a critically acclaimed musical at the Theatre Royal, Strathclyde called C. H. A. P. S (Cowboy, Horseriding Acting Performance Studio), which attracted audiences of between two and four million viewers at a time when The Last Resort with Jonathan Ross had Christmas in Strangeways, a TV special, had the band performing in Manchester’s Victorian jail on Boxing Day with a captive audience.
