Black Boy: 5 Nigerian Music Producers we should Pay More Attention To

Music producers are among the most unappreciated music professionals on the African continent. Except for a select few who command

Music producers are among the most unappreciated music professionals on the African continent. Except for a select few who command deserved reverence for their contribution to the music culture, a ton of others are battling varying degrees of under-appreciation of their art while some others have simply thrown in the towel in the struggle for recognition.

It is often the case for fans, while taking pleasure in listening to music, to develop love and adoration for the singer; showing less interest in the work put into the arrangement of the song’s background sound. This causes pain for music producers who should be getting more than just random shutouts, cliché studio praises and handouts as credit for their work.

There are quite a few producers who have been aptly accorded respect for their brilliance but there are many others who are working two times more than the credit they get. Here is a list of 5 Nigerian music producers whose works deserve more attention from you:

Sess

Sess isn’t the most popular music person and even the small class size of fans who recognize him, think of him as Falz’ sidekick, but the cool-headed producer has done enough to be cheered every time a Falz song is being played. Like No ID was to JAY-Z’s 4:44 album, Sess ‘technically’ manned the production duties of Falz’ two albums which received rave reviews from fans and critics alike, even in the area of sound arrangement and instrumentation which Sess handled.

Another interesting contribution of The Problem Kid to the music culture is his effort in helping an artiste like Terry Apala stand out as a genre phenom. ‘Apala-Trap’ music is in existence today because a producer like Sess contributed to bringing to life, Terry Apala’s unusual idea. Sess seems to relish challenges and that’s the reason for his consistency with hip-hop, even at a time when a lot of his colleagues are busy with pop sounds. Sess produces some of the dopest hip-hop beats around here and he deserves more recognition than he is accorded.

Krizbeatz

Only a fraction of Nigeria’s music listening population know the name “KrizBeatz” and even when you mention Pana, the first gist you’re more likely to hear is, “oh that Tekno’s song.” Some people would even go as far as suggesting that the song was self-produced whereas Krizbeatz is actually the brain behind the production.

The producer who wears dreadlocks, made the continent’s biggest music invention of the period between late 2016 to 2017.  Some of the very first samples of Afro-Dance Music which was popularly called pon pon sound, originated from his studio, including Runtown’s For Life. The sound became the in-thing on the continent even without a proper definition, which he attempted to do with the release of his album titled ADM.

Oscar

Nigerians love songs like Joromi and Smile For MeSongs like that have endeared Simi to many who have found spaces in their hearts for the songstress and her music but if she was allowed to come with one more, there’s a good chance she’d pick her producer and partner in music composition, Oscar.

While Simi does the singing, Oscar makes the sound and together they create some of the best mood-altering music around here. The producer whose identity is another form of art on its own, has produced a lot of Simi and Praiz’ songs, he produced majority of the constituent song on the Simisola album (save for two tracks), which many love for its rich sound and have touted it as a contender for album of the year. No doubt, the quiet producer deserves more credit.

Philkeyz

Perhaps the most underrated of the bunch. Philkeyz is one producer who has been quietly building his Rome. He has shown little interest in the surrounding happenings in the industry. His works are usually simple and yet delightful like that of Kiss Daniel’s No Do, which brought a feeling of nostalgia to fans who noticed the sampling of the soundtrack of one of the popular TV shows of the 90s, titled Tales By Moonlight. It is fair to say Philkeyz has a penchant for using “forgotten” African sound templates and he makes them sound like imported sounds from a foreign place.

Despite Philkeyz’ great repertoire, his popularity amongst Nigerian music lovers is not commensurate. It is so bad that Nigerians confuse his name for sensational guitarist, Fiokee. That Philkeyz is underrated in Nigeria is a big surprise, considering how he is cheered in other African countries like Liberia and Congo. The producer who prefers to let his work do the talking, has some of the records that has caused millions of Nigerian music lovers to share a common dance. Philkeyz should be getting more spotlight than he sees currently. Perhaps fans would start to appreciate him better once the highly raved about Kiss Daniel, Wizkid collaboration is out in public.

Mystro

Considering the quality of his work, Mystro should be placed among music professionals who are treated specially, especially because of how delicate their talent is. In other climes, he would have been much more recognised and his works would have been better appreciated. No wonder a foreign brand saw the beauty in his craft and chose to invest in it.

The multi-skilled music man has previously shown flashes of his brilliance on songs like Issa Vibe featuring Davido and Teni’s Fargin, however the complete manifestation of his talent as a producer, was experienced on his album titled Sugar which housed a song titled Ife” which did not only get the blessing of Simi’s love inspired singing, but also the purity of his own words as he sang about love. If only Nigerian music lovers paid more attention to things like sound arrangement and balance of rhythm, Mystro would be wearing a badge of maestros, at this time.

Today’s Noisemakers: Ali Baba, Praiz, Atiku Abubakar, others

Every day on the Nigerian internet, there are people who keep our eyes glued to our phone screens as we

Every day on the Nigerian internet, there are people who keep our eyes glued to our phone screens as we read their rants, opinions, perspectives on political and social matters, etc. Sometimes, they are just downright ridiculous. We make it our job to take down the names of these noisemakers.

Here’s our list from today:

1. Ali Baba

Handwriting used to be an important part of every school’s curriculum. Teachers made sure every pupils handwriting was clear but what do we see now?

The major concern is to make sure pupils pay all the ‘required’ fees even ‘graduation levies’.

Ali Baba has something to say.

It is just pitiful.

2. Praiz

As he meets Dr. Eyimofe Atake (SAN)… – the star in the legal space.

Give yourself permission to step into your greatness” – Dave Gambrill

3. Banky W

It was reported that the ‘EFCC on Tuesday arraigned one Olawunmi Dilureni before Lagos State High Court, Ikeja for obtaining money by false pretence and stealing to the tune of N23,320,000.

The defendant, alongside Lola Aremu Anjorin, Tunde Jamiu, Oluremi Osobu and Home Concepts Limited (all at large) allegedly conspired to defraud a popular Lagos pastor, Dr. Tony Rapu, Nellie St. Matthew-Daniel and Eyitope St. Matthew-Daniel of the money’ but the The House of Freedom has debunked the story.

The singer reacts:

It's kind of sad that in the world we live in.. bad news travels so much faster than good news. It's even worse when the bad news turns out to be completely false.. but noone cares enough to confirm that something is true before rushing to share it. Because afterall, it's more important to be one of the first, than it is to be correct, right? A story “broke” about an alleged case of fraud, identifying one of the victims as “Anthony Rapu”. And before you know it, multiple blogs/news outlets start peddling a version of it linking a respectable man of God, Dr Tony Rapu. Except none of them bothered to check the facts.. because if they did, they'd realize that he ISN'T actually the person in question, and has no involvement or knowledge of the case. Since y'all wanna talk about Dr Tony Rapu, how about sharing some of the good works he's done like #myLagosDiaries, or the recent rescue of a young boy called Shanawole? How about sharing some good news? No? Or at least maybe just confirm the facts before you drag a good man's name through the mud??? Nah. Confirming would have been too much work. It's easier just to repost, right? Shoutout to all the bloggers and reporters who do an amazing job covering the news. Shoutout to the ones who take a moment to make sure they're doing the right thing… and shoutout to those who just want to make sure they're the fastest at copying-and-pasting. God bless you all. #TheBankStatements #DrTonyRapu

People will always try to soil a good name…

4. Ife

Is this true?

Well arguably no. Ife used the Big Brother hashtag to get our attention.

5. Chi Ezekwesili

Ezekwesili tells us something we have been saying for a long time now. Something that informs that idea that youth will do better.

Nothing more true honey!

6. User

Okay… this is a crazy thought.

7.  Drey Mide

They struggle as hard but still find happiness. Give it up for the streets!!

8. Atiku Abubakar

The intending president has more to say after he saw the movie ‘Black Panther‘.

A comment came in:

“Praiz, Iyanya & Timaya stopped talking to me when I got married…” – Toolz O

Praiz, Iyanya, and Timaya have been called out by Nigerian On-Air Personality, Tolu Oniru popularly known as Toolz who confronted Praiz after his interview with Oliseh and Maria Okan for severing ties

Praiz, Iyanyaand Timaya have been called out by Nigerian On-Air Personality, Tolu Oniru popularly known as Toolz who confronted Praiz after his interview with Oliseh and Maria Okan for severing ties with her

According to the OAP, some of her male “friends” in the Nigerian music industry whom she thought were her friends left her immediately she got married and one of them is Praiz who she was opportune to speak with and hear His reason.

According to Praiz, he didn’t stop talking to Toolz, he only curtailed the frequency of their communication because of his respect for her marriage.

Timaya, on the other hand, told Toolz that she is dead to him the day she got married and apparently he kept his words because it seems she hasn’t heard from him since then. Just like Praiz, Toolz revealed Iyanya told her he stopped calling her because she got married.

To Praiz he didn’t continue because he felt he bonded with Toolz and when she got married… So? He didn’t say though but this kind of thing is quite hard to understand because like it or not she was going to marry he boo and that shouldn’t hinder FRIENDSHIP.

Toolz revealed she wasn’t happy with their decisions because she thought they were friends. OH-OH.

What do you guys think though? Should these artistes severe ties with their friend because she got married?
