Let's take it back to the beginning. When did you first become interested in music? 


I got interested in music when I was 5-years-old. It was in church and I experienced the power of music and how it influenced emotions. I wanted that and since then, everything I’ve done has revolves around music. 

What’s it mean to be from Lagos?


It means grind, hustle. Relentless, strong in the face of adversities. It also means life, creativity and good food. These are some of the things it means. 

What has been the key to your success?


I would say consistency. One of the things I’ve been in this life is consistent. I’ve always believed in myself and art…just to keep learning and growing

If you could go back to start with your music career would you change anything or leave it at that?


To be honest, no. Because it all got me to where I’m at now. I’m grateful for where I am right now. 


What advice do you think you can give to an artist on the come up?


The only advice I’ll give to an artist on the come up is to keep going. If this is what you really want to do, you have to keep going. No one said it’s going to be easy but now one said it would be impossible. Stay passionate and keep the fire burning. 

Please tell me about your typical day.


My typical day would be waking up. Sometimes, I hit the gym. Sometimes, I don’t. I hang out with friends in music, work on 3d concepts or art. Then I see movies or read books. 

You are already a fairly well-known artist, how many people are there on your team? Is this number increasing time after time?


Interesting question. I’ll just use this as an opportunity to give a shout out to everyone on my team. Shout out to my management team, DC Talent Agency. Shout out to my label, Warner Music. Also, shout out to everyone else who has been helping out from the distributors and publicists. 

Tell us about the "Finesse" remix and how did you link up with French Montana on that one?


French Montana sent a DM because he loved “Finesse”. I’ve always been a fan of French so when he hit me up, it was a big deal. We got together in the studio, and tried out the vibe and I also wrote a new verse for the song. It’s such a sick remix. We added the choir and everything…


What are your thoughts on how things are going in the music industry right now?


The industry is very cool right now because so many rising African artists are in front of the world. There has been a great reception for Afrobeats too.

Who are some artists and producers you want to work with that you have yet to?


Timberland, Rick Rubin, Noah 40. Jay-Z, Drake, Adele, Rihanna and many more producers and artists. 

2022 proved outstandingly successful for you, what to expect in 2023 from you?


In 2023, I’ll be dropping a project which I’m very excited about. I’ll also be touring the world and can’t wait to meet all the fans. 


Thank you very much for your time Pheelz. Anything else you want to add?


Thank you so much for having me. Look out for my EP next year.
