With the success of Wizkid’s Soco; it became necessary to look into the production of the song. And the thrill of featuring various artistes who are not so known but still together delivered such a hit track.
Soco, produced by NorthBoi is the Starboy Entertainment boss’ first release of the year 2018. It featured Terri, Spotless, Ceeza Milli alongside Starboy himself.
Their combination produced a great track. The track got even US Singer Chris Brown caught in the vibe therefore hailing Wizkid afterwards.
Formerly known as E-fine, Lagos born Ifeanyi Charles Bosah – Ceeza Milli is an Afrobeats artiste. He has a track record of great interest in Afro-Reggae and Afropop.
He started music at a tender age participating in choir activities in school and in the church. While studying in Ghana, he was creating several mixtapes and he became known for it.
The buzz he was creating in the Ghana music scene earned him a feature with one of Africa’s biggest music artiste, Sarkodie on his song ‘Stamina’. His kind of music has pulled him into traction especially at a time when Afrobeats is gaining international audience and acceptance.
Moving to Nigeria and still relatively new, he has been able to carve a niche for himself with the sort of sound that he produces. So far, he has worked with several top producers including LegendaryBeats, MasterKraft, Chopsticks and D’Tunes.
Some of his popular songs are ‘Love at First Sight’ produced by Lengendary Beatz. He also feature DMW’s Ichaba on ‘Alkyda’ and Duncan Mighty on ‘Sabi’. He got featured on Muty4u’s ‘Commando’ and then Wizkid’s ‘Soco’.
Constantly inspired by his brother – Tekno Miles’ success in the music industry, Augustine Uche is another singer featured on ‘Soco’. Of Ebonyi state origin, Augustine who is the last in Tekno’s family of 8 is also a songwriter and producer. He perfectly plays drum, guitar and piano well enough.
Unusually, Spotless despite having a big brother like Tekno is still struggling to find his feet in the crowded industry. He has a story of struggling, rejection, tears, sweat, frustration and consistent sacrifice.
He is known for being on an acclaimed journey of self-discovery rather than banking on the success and image of his brother Tekno. Tekno has grown big as to have a Columbian records deal in his name.
Before being featured on ‘Soco’, Spotless was signed to Ade Ogunlesi’s Mocking Birds Records and has his first official single ‘Take Am’ released in 2017. ‘Take Am’ remix came after in 2018 featuring Oritshefemi.
Not so much is known about Starboy Entertainment’s signing, Terri. Wizkid announced signing Terri to his Record Label via his twitter page few days to the release of ‘Soco’. Terri had in December 2017 tagged Wizkid on a video of him (Terri) doing the refix of Wizkid’s song ‘Oshee’ featuring DJ Jimmy Jat.
