I made my first hit song at 16
Nigerian music producer, Phillip Kayode Moses aka Pheelz has revealed that he produced his first hit song when he was 16 years old.
He made the revelation during an interview on Music Network and noted that the song in question was rapper, Olamide’s First Of All.
The Finesse crooner who said they’ve been friends for long, recounted how they both interned at ID Cabasa’s studio and used the opportunity to learn how to produce and sing.
Pheelz said he would steal Cabasa’s password for his computer and later at night he would input it work with Olamide to mix some sounds.
He said that after sometime, the producer told him that it was time to stand on his own so he left to work in another studio.
However, a year later, Olamide’s contract with Cabasa’s Koded Tunez label ended so he contacted him and said they should work together.
Pheelz said the first song they worked on together was First of All which turned out to be the hit song that shot the singer to super stardom.
He also said that he was spending time in the studio after finishing from secondary school because he knew that going to the university did not interest him.

In other entertainment news, Street-hop artiste, Habeeb Okikiola, professionally known as Portable, has said that nobody else but himself deserves credit for his success.
He said that contrary to widespread belief, he was not ‘blown’ by any other artiste or person in the entertainment industry.
CorrectNG recalls that he hit the limelight in December 2021 after Poco Lee introduced him to rapper, Olamide who then hopped on the remix of Zazuu, which became a hit.
But in an interview on Echo Room, Portable said he was already popular before meeting both of them. “Nobody made him popular”, he said.
The Zazuu star, who described himself as a child of grace insisted he was already famous and everybody wanted to associate with.
“Shey me I see anybody help me ni? As I dey like this, if no be sey I get grace. Everybody DM me. Nobody blow me. I don blow before I meet Poco Lee and Olamide,” Portable said.
