Playing this song ‘My Turn’ on repeat make me want to write a few lines about the song, indeed I have been following the artistes (@NoelEmpraw and @puppayanis01) on social media and I must say that they have quite demonstrated the persona of true stars with humility and creativity.
“dream killers try to scare you, they dare you, but real winners keep running, with their bare foot” this line indeed strike a chord in my head as I could relate to it personally, the content or body of the song is somewhat inspiring with the same feeling of a message that is relayed in most reggae music by the part that sang in patua, at some point I almost though some parts of the lyrics from Pupayannis were sounding with praises to the Almighty Jah (Which was), and Noel Empraw simply satisfied the hip hop crave in my head with unparalleled lyrical delivery, in overall, the song is coated in that slight boastfulness that characterize most hip-hop songs.
I think the artistes need to put out a good visual for the song ‘My Turn’ (I mean, how can they not) that will help endear their fan base the more and help us put faces to this awesome vocals. This is definitely a good start. Kudos boys!
AQUILA RECORDS presents the newest addition to her roster; Nigerian-Irish artiste BEEZY. Real names Abiodun Usman Azeez, BEEZY was born in Ibadan, Oyo State, and 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.
With very deep passion and a huge dream, BEEZY 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. In search of musical support, BEEZY wrote a freestyle detailing his experiences in the industry, dropping names in an open letter to the world and in typical Muhammed Ali style, prophesizing that he’d get signed by Aquila Group Chairman, SHINA PELLER, to his AQUILA RECORDS imprint. This freestyle caught SHINA PELLER’s attention. Impressed by BEEZY’s effort, he reposted the video on his Instagram handle @shinapeller 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 (formerly Toyin Aimakhu) and Fuji icon PASUMA, all asking that SHINA PELLER signs this very talented and charismatic act to his label.
BEEZY was therefore invited to the Aquila Studio to work with the team and prove himself. In that space of time, BEEZY was able to convince all and sundry through his hard-work, dedication and general drive that he deserves a spot on the team; hence his signing.
BEEZY presently has numerous tracks to his name. His latest freestyle visual, “Life” features South African act Kaptain Whyte and premiered at his unveiling party at Club Quilox on 30 th August.
BEEZY is already a multiple awards winner; IAMA (Ireland African Music Awards) Best New Artiste ’13, IAMA Best Single Of The Year ’13, Ta’Azor Lee Foundation Recognition Award ’15 (for his contribution to the growth of Afrobeats in Ireland).
The young man hopes to win more accolades, while also changing the music scene in Nigeria and continuing to expand Nigeria’s fine music heritage to the international market.
