While Don’t Compare me, Orezi’s last musical collabo with Terry G, had seen him battling for the proverbial ladder with other shining music stars.
Jamilaya, the latest hit single of the fastest rising hip-hop sensation otherwise known as Oz Jones featuring UK’s DJ Jamjam, is currently ruling the airwaves and has become a toast of Nigerians based in London.
Although, Orezi’s growing popularity in UK is not unconnected with his excellent vocal delivery in his previous hits like ‘I no fit Lie, High B.P, among others, London residents have decided to pick few lines from the song, most especially some of the lyrics of DJ Jamjam, the popular white dude with the Naija swagger.
While, Cullbed Music signed on artiste, Orezi, came hard on the song, wooing girls with his sonorous voice, “Me no care if your boyfriend be Jackie Chan, me no care if your boyfriend be Militant, emi gangan na n pe Labija, Oyinbo with the Naija swagger…,” are some of Jamjam’s memorable lines in Jamilaya, that have got people hooked on the song.
With a name that literally means destiny, Orezi grew up on a steady diet of music of the likes of late Michael Jackson, R Kelly, , Usher, Donell Jones Tuface , D’banj, King Sunny Ade, just to mention a few. Orezi’ music is a perfect blend of the old and new school, rich in melody and retains the real meaning of the genre “Rhythm & Blues”.
Since Orezi got signed by Cullbeed Music, his career has taken a turn for good. He has performed at prestigious events like the Nigerian Breweries Limited organised concert ‘Startrek’ in Markurdi and Kaduna; he also performed in Inc Club, Johannesburg in South Africa, 100 Watts of University of Ibadan among many others.
