Rexy Brown… Another Rising Star Steps Out
Though the music industry is currently filled with talented artistes, who are making waves home and abroad, new talents have continued to emerge by the day. While some would fizzle out with time, other will end up a one-hit stars; that’s the reality.
However, some, who are naturally talented and gifted in the act of singing, will always find space in the already crowded industry.
After years of working on his materials, Anambra State native Madu Vincent Chwubuikem is ready to take a shot at the music industry.
Popularly known as Rezy Brown, the Computer Science student of the Lagos State University recently sealed a recording deal with Ice TA Records, the label under which his latest single, Hello My Baby, will be released.
“I grew up listening to music and loving music; I can just hear a beat, and the inspiration will come to start putting something down. Today, I thank God for bringing us together to work as a team all through the production. From now on, we are moving higher,” he said.
Rexy Brown’s new single, Hello My Baby features talented singer Jay Martins, who is obviously the brain behind his (Rexy Brown’s) hiplife beat. At first, he sounded like his fellow townsman, Flavour; both men have the same vocal chord. But when you take time to listen deep, you will surely find Rexy Brown’s distinct voice. Besides, his looks will be an added advantage.
“I’m into Rhythm and Blues, as well as Dancehall, but I can switch to different genres of music at will. Besides, I sing in English, Yoruba and Igbo. I think this is my selling point,” he said.
While the video for his latest single is expected to hit music shelf in August, the singer is already gearing up to work with Wande Coal on his next track Give it To Me.
“While I will be working with Wande Coal in my next song, intend to collaborate with other artistes such as Davido, Phyno and Flavour; Flavour is my brother, so, we will definitely work someday. My plan is to make good music for my fans. I have a five-year contract with this record label. Since we started, everything has been moving well; they’ve been very supportive. For now, I’m the only artiste on the label, but I believe as time goes on, this family will expand,” he said.
Though Rexy Brown started experimenting with his music in 2010, moving to Cape Town, South Africa became the tonic that eventually shaped his music career.
“I had the opportunity of working with other talented artistes there and we usually staged shows in Cape Town to showcase our works; it helped to bring me up to speed. With my record label behind me, expect my album soon,” he said.
As for the obviously competition in the country’s music industry, especially with the rising profiles of equally young music talents under MAVIN Records, Rexy Brown said, “well, I love MAVIN Crew; they are doing well. But in terms of competition, I don’t think we need to compete; we will all bring our best to make the industry great. As for surviving, I believe I will do well in my own style of music. Definitely, I will be successful,” he enthused.
