OJB Jezreel aka jigga man, is a renowned producer writer and executive producer for over two decades.During the phase of the birth of the new age music in the late 90’s, Ojb helped to redefine the sound to be more globally accepted with the likes of TX, kush and etim eyo(Arista records) which made the likes of the then leila steinberg of interscope records see the possibility in our music becoming international mainstream.
In Nigeria the birth was defined by Ruggedman, Jazzman, 2face, dbanj, cmion, nomoloss to mention a few who he not just only produced their albums but executively produced too. These sounds however gave birth to the new age sound of Nigeria -the Terry Gs, Duncan Mighty (who was a trainee under him in d mid 90’s) Timayas etc became products of that era.
Evidently his God father status is eminent in the fact that at least 90% of the industry has passed through his hands even the current sensation Wizkid trained with jigga!
His biggest break was with 2face‘s “African Queen” setting a yet to be beaten record not just in Nigeria but in Africa! 10million copies in Nigeria alone and 8million copies internationally, this made him the most sort after producer in Nigeria and some regions of Africa.
He stamped his presence on the Industry as an artiste with the club banger that still has a hold on the clubs years after! “Pretete“! Meaning the involuntary movement of a womans back side. And crowned it with a classic love song “Searching”. The album did 3million copies.
Now he is back again with a brand new single fast sweeping in to people “don’t let me down”. The feedback from industry critics which is his next album is said to be the best of jigga! will Be out in April.
Yup! Get familiar!
