I have an unhealthy obsession for perfection. Some might call it a weakness, I call it my greatest strength. It keeps me constantly learning, and striving to get your sound to sound the best it can, each and every single time.
Hey, my name is Chibuzor (you can call me Chibz). I have been into music production for over 12 years now. I mix, produce, and even write. I mix/master mostly genres like hip-hop/rap, rnb, and afrobeats. Let me take your music project to the next level!
