360Recommends: Shizzy D – Nightmares

share on:

Shizzy D, a student of the University Of Maiduguri  had been addicted to the studio since when he was a young teen in the city of Abuja. He is known to have recorded hundreds of songs, throwing away the previous and perfecting his art.

Unfortunately,on this day last year, Shizzy D was brutally killed alongside his girlfriend Heych and his friend D2 – all three aspiring rappers in the city of Maiduguri. They were slaughtered in the senseless killings that have become a daily occurrence in the city.

In this track – Nightmares, Shizzy talks about how visions of death keep springing up in his sleep – the track is so scary that it chilled us to the bone when we found it among his archive of songs after his passing away. His long-time friend and music partner, Von D decided to make a new, and more fitting instrumental to accompany the vocals of the song. I tag this the realest song ever -and as someone who was Shizzy’s friend, I so wish it wasn’t real.
