This is another very interesting episode of SAGA by Sux city and we have with us one of the youngest, talented and very humble indigenous rappers of this era WHIZPRINZE and he’ll be taking us through his humble beginnings till this time. Take a ride with us as we chat up the boy WHIZPRINZE.
- SO, WHO IS WHIZPRINZE? whizprinze is an unsigned rapper, singer, and a song writter, a versatile one actually, cos i try to not always give bread and beans always,an average man will surely have a song he really likes out of all my songs, cos they all come from diff concepts, not everytime my story,there are a lot of stories out here not only in the streets, there was this time people were criticising davido (obo) cos the lyrics to one of his songs went on like “back when I was broke”, music is not necessarily the singer’s story, there are a lot of inspirations out there if you can’t be one, find a dope one that will catch people’s ears.`
- HOW DID YOU COME ABOUT THE NAME WHIZPRINZE? whizprinze was coined from two words that is “whiz” and “prinze”, a whiz is a young person who is extraordinarily good at what he does, i started music at a very young age & there is a mysterious family tale that we come from a royal family, so i’m a Prince, i brought the whiz and the prince together spiced it up to
- AT WHAT POINT DID YOU DECIDE TO GO INTO MUSIC? “whizprinze that shy kid lowa di lyrical don? // boko gan wami tori bimo se ma drop bomb” I started writing songs when i was in ss3, we had this group then ice boiz, those niqqaz ignited my lyrical engines, I was the only indigenous rapper among them, so everyday when I got home from school I always tried to perfect my craft cos unlike now indigenous rappers were not valid
- HOW DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION? My inspiration comes from a dope beat, I believe every instrumental is trying to tell you something, you just don’t stress yourself, listen and write it down, I never plan that I want to write songs, when it’s time, it’s times, my process; it’s always like when a prophet goes into trance, and god is talking to the prophet, when I go into my own trance its the beat that talks to me.
- IF NOT MUSIC, WHAT OTHER JOB WOULD YOU LOVE TO DO? When I was growing up I wanted to be a pilot so much, that I ignored the fact that I was supposed to be in art department, until I found out how much the fees cost, that was the first time in my life I felt heart break, as in I told my best friend i wanted to leave our area then start secondary school again then be in art department since I can no longer be a pilot, but you known that saying every disappointment is a blessing not long after ice boiz came into existence, then I found my true call.
- WHAT DO YOU DO AT YOUR LEISURE? When I’m not doing music, I’m doing music, music is what I do at my leisure, it’s complicated you can’t understand
