In Nigeria today, there are only few artistes who double as producers. Mystro, who has been around for some time now, is one of such multi-talented artistes as Don Jazzy, Kiddominant and Blaq Jerzee. He announced his entry into the Nigerian music industry in 2012 with the release of ‘Ojoro’. He now focuses more on production and this has paid off- he is now one of the fastest rising producers in Nigeria. He upped his game last year when he worked with Five Star Music for the production of a heavy and nice Highlife tune titled ‘Ebeano’.
He proceeded this year with the production of instrumentally rich ‘Awele’ for himself and a cool and melodious mid-tempo tune, ‘Aye Mi’, for Skiibii. Not quite long ago, he produced a classic R&B tune for Iyanya: ‘Type of a Woman’. Type of Woman is currently buzzing on almost every radio station in Africa. While still enjoying recently released guitar-rich ‘Show Dem’ by Lamboginny and Mr Clayy ft Yemi Alade, it surfaced on the news Iyanya had completed another Mystro-produced single titled ‘Heartbeat’ which is already being pre-ordered on iTunes and Google Play.
For Iyanya, who is an R&B giant in Nigeria, to have chosen Mystro once again suggests the former believes in the power of the latter’s instrumentation to maintain and improve his stature on the music scene. Mystro’s flexibility with the production of diverse music genres is also an advantage for him.
