Aquila Records has added Irish-based Nigerian artiste Abiodun Usman Azeez popularly known as Beezy to their lineup. The unveiling which held last week, kicked off with a press conference at nightlife hub, Club Quilox.
Speaking at the event, Quilox boss and Aquila Records CEO, Shina Peller, revealed what drew him to the young artiste. “I particularly admired the way he was able to turn an ordinary freestyle into an extraordinary content.
When it comes to signing an artiste for the label, talent is not the only thing we look out for. We look for people that actually pay attention to details. Looking at Beezy, I was convinced that he is someone I shouldn’t just put aside,” he said.
Beezy who was born in Ibadan, Oyo State 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. He also entrenched himself in music, making a name for himself within the Dublin community.
Beezy moved back to his homeland Nigeria in May 2017, so as 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.
This freestyle caught Shina Peller’s attention. Impressed by Beezy’s effort, he reposted the video on his Instagram handle and asked if Beezy should be signed to the label. Within hours the post received thousands of comments, including comments from Nollywood superstar Toyin Abraham and Fuji icon Pasuma, all asking that Shina Peller sign the very talented and charismatic act to his label.
