One of Nigeria’s foremost record label, Aquila Records, has unveiled yet another, a Nigerian-Irish singer, Abiodun Usman Azeez, BeezyOfficial.
Born in Ibadan, Oyo State, Beezy moved to Dublin, Ireland at a young age. While residing in Dublin, he studied and achieved a dual degree in Mechanical Engineering and Business Management while also entrenching himself in music, and making a name for himself within the Dublin community.
The young artiste moved back to his homeland Nigeria in May 2017, in order to take his career to the next level and build his audience with the people he loves.
Introducing the artiste last Wednesday, the CEO of the label, Shina Peller said that he caught his attention from an ordinary post on Instagram.
“I particularly admired the way he was able to turn an ordinary freestyle into an extraordinary content. When it comes to signing an artiste for the label, talent is the only thing we look out for. We look for people that actually pay attention to details. Looking at Beezy, I was sure that he was somebody that I should not just put aside,” he said.
In search of musical support, Beezy had written a freestyle detailing his experiences in the industry. This freestyle caught Peller’s attention. impressed by the artiste’s effort, he reposted the video on his Instagram handle and asked if he should be signed to the label. Within hours the post received thousands of comments, including comments from Nollywood superstar Toyin Abraham and Fuji icon Pasuma, all asking that Peller signs him.
