Emmanuel Mkono (born 12 December 1989 in Dar es Salaam), known by his stage name Nahreel, is a Tanzanian award winner, record producer, rapper and entrepreneur. He is the founder and current CEO of The Industry Studios. Nahreel is a co-founder and member of the music group Navy Kenzo. He has produced albums for and overseen the careers of many rappers and singers, including Joh Makini, Diamond Platnumz, Nikki wa pili, Navy Kenzo, Izzo Biznes, G nako, K.O, Roma Shrekeezy. He is credited as a key figure in the popularization of English rap in Tanzania.

Early life
Nahreel places his interest in music at the age of 14 when his father bought him a piano and a teacher to tuition him on how to play. He officially began his career in music as an assistant music producer at Kama Kawa records in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. He worked there for a period of two years before leaving to India to further his studies at Punjab College. His Riz One instrumental for Izzo Bizness, released under MJ Records, led the rapper Izzo Bizness to become one of the best-selling Tanzanian performing artists of 2009, to get nominations for major awards and meet the son of the President of the republic of Tanzania Mr Rithiwan Kikwete. He was still in India by this time but the demand for his instrumentals was getting really out of proportion back home in Tanzania as most hip-hop artists were interested in working with him.

In 2011, he completed his education in India and came back to Tanzania. He produced a couple of singles before linking up with a couple of his old friends to form the music group Pah One.

The Industry
In August 2014, Nahreel finally opened his own Company called The Industry, The industry comprises The Industry studios (Label, Pr, Management) and The industry school Of Music (TIMS) where he is able to establish all his year's work in one. The Industry has since then worked upon many major projects with different companies and artists.

Navy Kenzo
After the break up of Pah One, Nahreel together with Aika formed a new group called Navy Kenzo which became popular with their 3rd single called Chelewa and managed to be a big tune in Tanzania.
