Music producer, OJB during a chat with Saturday Beats for the first time disclosed he discovered
young act, Wizkid and not Banky W like many people have been made to believe. He
says he thinks it will be funny that at almost 50 he will be caught in an
argument that has to do with something like that, but he actually discovered
him and has no regret doing that.
I discovered Wizkid’s talent. We basically started his career and I remember
when we had to push Wizkid around and take him for shows but nobody was ready
to allow him to perform because they were not ‘feeling’ him at that point in
time. When he had the chance and said he wanted to move on and try other
things, we were behind him then too. If we did not discover him, he would not
have been with us. I was the first person to go to his family house to tell
them that it would be a nice idea if they allowed him to go into music. We have
been there from day one but not everybody know this story, we don’t just make
noise about it. It is not Banky W that discovered him, I did. I would soon be
50 years old and I think it would be funny if I start blowing my trumpet,” he
to Wizkid because he pushed his career as far as he could.
on them, they would not be impactful until they cross borders. Take Harrysongs
for example, millions was spent on him but nothing happened till he crossed
over to Five Star Entertainment. There is no how Harrysongs would say that
Questionmark record label was not a blessing to his life. Sometimes, these
things happen like that and I think it is destiny,” he said.
