Phizzle's Artist Profile
Fela Yomi-Layinka aka Phizzle aka Oloro Mr Rapper was born in Ibadan on the 9th of Feb 1985 into a media family. His mom works for Tribune Newspapers and his father is a TV producer/director. He has never been far from the camera or the microphone. This young dude’s interest in music started out with dancing, as this was what pulled crowds and girls at high school shows at the time, but he later realized he could pull a few tricks with rap rhymes. Listening to Maintain, Trybesmen, Modenine and Eedris Abdulkareem during the birth of Nigerian Hip-Hop in the late 90s was his early motivation.
Throughout his first degree at Babcock University he built up this skill and quickly became popular on campus with his unconventional and unique flow. Phizzle then went on to the UK for his second degree in 2007 and currently holds an MSc. in Information Systems Management from Brunel University, London.
Phizzle is also a very slick graphic artist and does all of his own promotional artwork. He takes a cue from his dad when it comes to video production as well, and you can expect some out-of-the-ordinary videos from Phizzle in the coming months.
With his love for music, and his bulk of talent, Phizzle is set to raise the bar in the Nigerian music industry not only by bringing good music, but also by creating new standards and possibilities for Nigerian artists.
