Born in Lagos State, Nigeria, April 14th. Grew up in Festac Town. Obi started off as a keyboardist in a teens church and gradually began to harness his writing abilities as he began to write small verses for choir songs and making arrangements for his school choir. He moved on to do a couple of performances and poetry recitations at various events in high school from Lagos to east African city of Nairobi. He began to have inclinations towards Jazz and Hip Hop at the same time (with a whole lot of funk and soul) music listening to George Duke, Victor Wooten, Kirk Whalum and on the other side great hip hop lyricists such as Nas, Common, Lauryn Hill, Mos Def and others.
Objazz began producing for other artists in studios from 2004 and due to the fact that he was attending university (F.U.T Owerri) he only did a few jobs for artists such as Kyra, Kingslai, Ibiyemi and only a few others and also featured on a few others with rap verses.
His writings range from Rap songs to vocal pieces to prose. In 2006 he decided to start recording. The singles ‘Mass Hysteria’
(a grimy, comedic and confrontational battle chant) and ‘Keep Running’ (an energetic, motivational piece) are off his debut album ‘My Music, My Love, My Life’. The album is produced under the WAVEHOUSE® productions label and is to be released in the third quarter of the year.
