Must read

By Daniel Edu

Esegine Orezi Allen, the well-known Nigerian musician known by his stage name Orezi, boldly asserted that Afrobeats music lacks something crucial in his absence. The 37-year-old artist, hailing from Delta State, shared this perspective during a candid conversation with Gehn Gehn TV.

Despite not releasing new music for a few years, Orezi exuded confidence during the interview, emphasizing that he stands apart from his peers in the entertainment industry because he doesn’t adhere to their conventions. He pledged to stage a remarkable comeback, asserting his intention to conquer the Nigerian music scene once more. Comparing himself to a lion, the “Shoki” hitmaker predicted that his upcoming single would be an instant hit.

“Afrobeats is incomplete without me. A lion cannot miss its hunt. I will carry Afrobeats to new heights and dominate the scene,” Orezi declared. He further distinguished himself from other artists, stating, “I am different. I don’t conform to the norms. Rules are for ordinary artists. I am Orezi.”

Burna Boy Credits Sidhu Moose Wala as a Source of Inspiration

In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1Xtra, Grammy-winning Nigerian artist Burna Boy shared an interesting revelation about his musical journey. He disclosed that when he was feeling creatively drained, the late Indian rapper Sidhu Moose Wala served as a significant source of inspiration.

Burna Boy revealed that he had been collaborating on a joint project with Moose Wala before the rapper’s tragic assassination in May 2022. He candidly admitted, “I was musically exhausted and felt the need for something new.”

The Nigerian superstar discovered Sidhu Moose Wala’s music through his fans and was immediately captivated by the rapper’s distinctive style. Moose Wala’s music encouraged Burna Boy to experiment with his own sound and push the boundaries of his music.

“He made me want to be a better artist. Sidhu Moose Wala was one of the biggest inspirations I had when I felt like I’d already done everything musically. I thought I’d exhausted myself musically, but Sidhu brought a new dimension to my musicality. He’s a legend, the legend of Punjab. There will never be another like him,” Burna Boy fondly remembered.
