The Nigerian entertainment industry is no doubt bursting with talents and one of them was recently discovered via the internet.
Abuja-based singer, Reggie, caught the attention of New Zealand music boss, Willy Fehoko, after hearing one of his songs called Ghana Girl.
According to the Fejoint Productions founder, he and his team had already worked on a song but felt it needed more. Thankfully, he discovered Reggie’s music on the internet and was greatly impressed by it.
While speaking with Legit.ng’s Abisola Alawode, Willy said he was impressed by Reggie’s streams on Ghana girl and decided to reach out to him.
In his words:
“I came across Reggie through a song, Ghana Girl. Once I heard Ghana Girl I was like ‘wow, who is this guy.’ I looked him up and was like ‘why isn’t this guy blowing up?’.”
The New Zealander said he had no hassle reaching out to the Nigerian singer who later agreed to work with him.
Reggie on the other hand said that he was already working on a number of projects when he was contacted. He also said that his work with Willie ‘didn’t feel like a huge project. It felt like ‘let’s jump on this track and see what we get’.

The Nigerian star however fell in love with the track immediately and that gave him enough motivation to give it his all.
Willie also said that Afro music is big in his country and there seems to be an automatic connection his people have with it. He added that Reggie sounded different and was nothing like he had ever heard.
The Fejoint Productions owner later said that Reggie would most likely be flown to his country so that they could work better together. He added that the plan was for him to blow up in New Zealand then come back to Nigeria with a bang.
