There are hundreds of music producers in Nigeria today but there is this particular producer whose magical fingers are capable of reviving a dying or even a dead music career. Nigerian music producer Blaq Jerzee, whom I believe is being underrated is the owner of those fingers. Though not as popular as Masterkraft, he is master at what he does. I will prove this to you with the four instances below.
I recall after the frenzy of the success of The Journey which was released in 2103 went down, things became a little tough for Sean Tizzle. However, things took a new turn when Blaq Jerzee became his producer. He has been his producer for three years now and trust me, it’s been hit upon hit. Another instance is that of Kcee: After Harrysong left Five Star Music, Kcee felt uneasy for a while but inspiration returned when he met Blaq Jerzee who produced trending love song, Burn and brand new Akonuche which is a fire Highlife joint. The love and acceptance the Limpopo king has received since the birth of Burn till date has been massive.
Of course Iyanya’s Signature EP which was released under Mavin Records was a huge success. What happened after the singer parted ways with the top label? The fame he once regained via the label started to dwindle once again. The ‘messiah’ Blaq Jerzee stretched his helping hands once again for Iyanu ( Holy Water) which has kept him relevant till date. Blaq Jerzee-produced E Dey Your Body has put Chocolate City act, Koker, back in the spotlight.
The four instances highlighted above should convince you Nigerian music producer Blaq Jerzie, who is fondly called ‘Esama of Beats’ by friends, is not only a master at what he does but also a saviour any artiste should run to in ‘difficult times’.
