Post by Demola OG, December 28th, 2009

notjustOk hype will feature (or may be not) the future heavy hitters
in naija music. Any material featured in this category will be from
unsigned or up & coming Nigerian/African, artists/rappers/producer/record label that
contain nothing but promising content. There will only be a post a
month in this category.

If you have or know of anyone’s music that you feel is a hit or any good, please send an email to the official notjustOk email with a link to their page or where I can download the song.

WizKid (notjustOk Hype)

WizKid (notjustOk Hype)

As far as you can remember when did you start singing and how did you know you had the gift?

It all started at church when I was 11… I didn’t join the choir because I wasn’t too confident of my voice so I was just playing around with rap, but after I turned 14, I tried experimenting something new so I did a song and I actually sang and then discovered that was what I was good at. So I just stuck to it and tried developing more skills.

Wizkid1How and when did you get to that point where you knew you wanted to pursue this as a career?

I can’t say I decided to pursue it as a career at a particular age. All I know is, when I started recording and performing I wanted to do it for life!

What was happening around the period you got on M.I’s fast money fast cars and how did you land the feature?

I went to drop off stuff at M.I’s place on a Sunday morning and he just played the beat and said “Wiz can u do something to this?” And I just started humming “if u don’t talk money omo don’t show up” and he said add a little bit off yoruba in there and “tobalowo” just came, in like 10 minutes I was done recording and that was it. After this song was released on MI’s Talk About It album, let’s just say, a lot of good things happened.

You are now signed to EME, how did that happen?

I went for a gig with M.I and Kel. Banky also performed at that show and then he invited us to his crib for lunch. We got there and for like an hour Banky didn’t know I was Wizkid. When he heard someone call my name he was shocked and just started talking to my manager Osagie about working with me. He had heard some of my songs and had wanted to meet me. From that day, Banky was willing to support me, help me develop my talent and career. He believes in me to date and sees great potential. So thats how it all started and am loving it here.

What new singles can we expect and where is Wizkid headed? What kind of mark are you trying to make in the music industry?

Wizkid is headed for the top… Aint no stopping me!… I’m here to change the industry for good. Wizkid is going to be a brand name in a few months. Everybody will want to associate with the brand WIZKID!!.. My singles will drop real soon… So my work will definitely speak for me!

WORLD PREMIERE – Hola at Your Boy (Unmixed)

I see you have been touring a lot lately. What has the experience been like? What do you prefer performing live or recording?

Loving it man…though its stressful and I don’t get to see my family on a regular, but they are cool with it. After all, the prayer has always been things falling in place for me for good so its cool. The experience is crazy though, fun as usual and I get to visit different cities and states that I always wanted to visit so its cool, really cool. I love performing with the live band, though I don’t get to do that all the time but the live band has always been my thing.

Nice, so what city is your favorite so far?

Mehn, I love all the cities for different reasons..I can’t even pick o..thats really hard ’cause Nigeria is a beautiful place and the more you travel the more you discover good things about your country so I just love Naija mehn. Lol!!

I can imagine. You did justice to the singles on Banky W’s album, how was the experience working with him and what have you learned from Banky music wise that has helped you?Banky_Wizkid

It was really cool working with Banky and still working with him… Every time I work with a different artiste it’s always a different experience and I tend to learn something different so working with Banky was a W experience.. lol… I had fun in the studio from the first day we did ‘Omoge you too much‘ and ‘Tanker‘ was just something we just decided to play with… We didn’t even know it was going to come out like that..but I’ve learnt how to stay dedicated to my work and be a better artiste so its really cool.

So how would you define your music? Can it fit into a genre?

I’ve always had problems defining my kind of music, because on different records I do different things. I just work with the sound basically; I guess thats why am the WIZKID… lol… but let’s just say I make music. Anything that sounds good.

(Laugh) How did you even coin the name Wizkid?

The name WIZKID came about at an armed robbery scene in my house but I wouldn’t wanna go into details because it wasn’t a good experience..However, my sisters and cousins teased me with the name for a while and it just stuck!

Wow that’s funny now, but I’m sure it was not funny then. So is there an album in the works and does it have a name yet?

Started working on my album already but don’t have a name for it yet, but I am dropping singles real soon and it premieres on NotjustOk..hehe!

Lol! What are they called?
Holla @ ur BoY and GIDI GIRL..

WORLD PREMIERE – Gidi Girl (Unmixed)

  9. baddestgee says:

    this bb pin song makes sense sha…. but bro u dont send a song today and expect dem to upload it same day….how long have u sent it and have u sent a reminder,flood their inbox mybe they will play it and upload it…

  10. Diaspora Dude says:

    this is spam. notjustok ppl take this shit off. you want notjustok folks to put up your stuff then send it to them the right way. if you are an upcoming artist and your shit is WACK why should they post it hear??? get youir act together, do a mix tape, do some shows, put out some quality music…give it to DJ's….up and coming artists are lazy as fuck!!!! you think notjustok will make you a star???

  11. Music Soul-Ja says:

    Dog, i sent it to them over a month ago now…..

    I dont spam people and i gave them a lot of time to respond.

    I sent a very formal mail with a pic and all that so there you go.

  12. Music Soul-Ja says:

    He has more tracks and i'm trying all i can to get feedback from people as per the guy (Mistuuur Montana).

    He's in Naija now trying to shoot a video and stuff…..

    Thanks again.

  13. Music Soul-Ja says:

    Hi, y are you cursing @ Diaspora Dude? from you name you suppose get more exposure, haba….

    You should ask questions before making accusations. Thank God say you no be God.

    He has a mix tape and is trying to get his stuff together (isnt that the reason y upcoming artists are featured here?)

    If you no like am at least give others a chance top jugde….

  14. Music Soul-Ja says:

    Thanks for the comment @ baddestgee.

    I sent the song to them over a month ago….

    almost 2 months now and even a pic and a brief profile of the guy.

    I didnt even get a reply to say they dont like the song.

    at least they should say that.

    I actually sent them a mail asking if i could send a song to them and they replied appropriately, if they didnt reply in the first place, i wouldnt have bothered.

    Look out for Mistuuur Montana, na small remain. lol!!!!

    Thanks again.

  15. Music Soul-Ja says:

    Thanks for taking the time to listen and enjoy it @ Dopeboy.

    He has another track called "Nogere" amongst a few others. Na that one i like pass.

    Lets hope he makes it so he can add something different to Naija music industry….

    Thanks again, keep banging the track man….

  33. henry da Chocboy says:

    Knite house those boys are maaaaad! I missed the voiceover at the beginning. Wizkid is heavily connected sha; knite house crew, banky etc. He is in good hands. Good job to the producers cos its international standard

  34. BZ says:

    Holla at your boy is hot and I hope a good video is shot for it. I advocate some Elvis style dance moves which can compete with Alanta especially for the chorus in some circles. I hope a visionary director works on this song.

  35. lazarous09 says:

  45. Teresa says:

    This is serious ohhhhhhhhh.The truth is dat no matter how good u are, people will always talk.If u r bad, they will still talk.So, if any1 shud worry abt wat pple say, u wunt move forward in life.So whether wizkid is good or not, he is earning his money and u guys r earning nothing for liking or hating him. If some people have sense, they will think of better things to do with their lives instead of poking their nose where it doesnt belong…………I like Wizkid and i dont care whether he is copying any1 or not.If u dnt like him, go and hug the transformer.Period!
