I’m a music producer. My main genre of expertise is R&B and Hip-Hop. For 19 years i’ve developed my sounds and taste as well as been part of album projects of Nigerian artistes such as Banky W, Wizkid, Yemi Alade, Patoranking, Phyno, Timi Dakolo and Tiwa Savage.
I would like to produce/be part of a project for any of your R&B, Pop or Hip-Hop artists, create unique sounds that match their style and at the same time give their brand an audience on a global scale. I believe I can be an integral part of the creative process for your next LP or EP projects.

Interview with GHAISIK
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Identify the style of music the artist represents by having a brief discussion about current creative works as well as a target market. Afterwards we experiment on sounds.

Basically, I guide the artist as well as produce music for the artist that fits his style.

Q: What's your typical work process?

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Music has always brought joy to my life one way or the other. I learn every time music plays in my ears, whether it's the overall pattern of the composition or the sounds, I kept learning and built a wealth of music knowledge.
