Special thanks to the guys – Nigerian music producers – who are mostly behind the scenes cooking the music we have come to love from our favourite musicians.
Shout out to veterans like Don Jazzy, Sarz, MasterKraft, Pheelz and others, however, some new guys are killing it in the music production department. As far as Nigerian music is put in review this year, there are 5 music producers who deserve major props for their contribution to the quality of music we have so far enjoyed.
These 5 Nigerian music producers have their tags on some of the best songs dished out this year by our popular artistes. They have collectively been able to drive the emergence of new sound continuously saturating the airwaves.
Somehow you may have heard their signature tags on some of your favourite tunes, we would put a face to those tags briefly.
It is most likely that you have heard the tag ‘Funkula’ on some of the buzzing new music releases in the past couple of weeks. Those tunes were produced by Ali Odunayo better known as Telz. Some of his most popular productions include Patoranking’s ‘Abule‘, ‘Wonderful‘, ‘Onyeka (Baby)’, ‘Naughty By Nature’, ‘Real Life’ and co-produced ‘Wetin Dey Sup’ on Burna Boy’s raving ‘Twice As Tall’ album. However, Telz has more coming.
