The Nigerian music industry is no doubt filled with a number of talented acts and many of them are gradually getting the attention they greatly need.
Just recently, Legit.ng interviewed a fast-rising Nigerian producer, Telz, who worked with Grammy-nominated star, Burna Boy, on his Twice As Tall album.
Speaking with Legit.ng's Abisola Alawode, Telz explained how he met the music star and how they went ahead to create magic on his album.
According to the 23-year-old graduate of Accounting, he attended a production camp where his friend, Buju, was also present. Buju got a call from Burna and asked Telz to accompany him to visit him the next day.
This eventually led to Telz showing Burna some of his works which were greatly appreciated and a contract was sent to him soon after to make things official.
Speaking on the work and personal relationship with Burna Boy, Telz explained that the singer is quite different from how many people perceive him.
He said that the Twice As Tall star is legit one of the nicest people a person can ever meet. According to him, people see how they play and wonder who is older.
In his words: “I promise you when Burna is your friend, when he is him, he is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. You’d see how we play and want to ask who is older or how long we have known each other for.”
Speaking further, Telz said that Burna is also quite teachable as he listens to opinions and corrections of people. Telz said that he rates the African Giant as one of the biggest artistes in Africa and that if he can take corrections, others should too.
He said: “This guy is the biggest artist in Africa and if he can take corrections, everybody should be able to do that as well.”
Telz said that Burna has also made him feel like a genius by trusting his work. He then continued that he cannot work with an artiste who does not trust him.
