Hip hop sensation Orezi is currently on tour of major South African cities. While at it, the Isoko, Delta State born artiste is also shooting the video of his hit single, Rihanna, which has been rocking the airwaves in Nigeria and across Africa for close to two months now.
Speaking from South Africans, Orezi says “I am into music to make my mark and leave my foot prints,” Orezi said while Speaking with PremiumTimes from South Africa. “I am glad that South Africans and Nigerians resident here accepted my music and they have showed me so much love that I am overwhelmed. I never knew that Rihanna is an anthem here like it is in Nigeria, for that I give glory to God and my management companies, Sprisal Records and Synergy Entertainment.”
The best hands are currently working on the video of Rihanna. Everybody working on Orezi project is presently in South Africa to ensure everything works according to plan. “This is planning and coordination at its best. The state-of-the-art equipment being used on the video, the precision, timing… is out of this world! Nigerians are going to see a video that will redefine music videos in Nigeria going forward,” the hip hop star said.
According to insiders, the total budget for the video is costing his management company a whopping N7.3 million as he plans to go on tour of some Europe countries immediately after his south African tour.
It is not sheer coincidence that Orezi titled his hit single Rihanna as the foreign star he would want to do a remix of the song with is no other person than the diva, Rihanna. And later, he would love to work with Daddy Showkey. “I really would want to do the remix of the Rihanna hit with Rihanna herself, that would happen by God’s grace and later I will do something big with Daddy Showkey. Why Daddy Showkey? When the song comes out, you will know the reason why. International collaborations are a good thing, most especially when it is the right song. It gives African music the international face it surely deserves.”
Orezi calls his music style ‘Ghen Ghen’ and just like the cartoon characters Pinky and Brain, he plans to rule the world, the world of music. “Everybody’s got his time, this is my time and I am going to use it.”
