Following the death of legendary producer and singer, OJB Jezreel on Tuesday, June 14, 2016, popular music star Wizkid mourns the late singer.
The ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner took to Instagram yesterday, June 15, 2016 sharing a photo of the late producer with the words “Rip legend, mentor and hero.”
Recall that OJB has been credited with discovering Wizkid way before Banky W signed him.
In 2015, he said this about Wiz
“To set the records, 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 said.
Meanwhile, Wizkid and England based Nigerian rapper, Tinie Tempah are teaming up with LA based Nigerian Celebrity stylist, Ugo Mozie for a super stylish music video shoot.
The trio were in the Dominican Republic shooting a new music video with Mozie on hand for some super stylish looks. The stars were photographed in vintage looks, with bright colors and patterns featured.
