Faveboy Ryme discusses ambition to win Grammy, experience with Nigerian artistes
Faveboy Ryme has said he foresees himself as a potential Grammy award winner in the nearest future.
Olu Joseph Achi, also known as Faveboy Ryme is currently signed to Faveboy Entertainment; a Record Label based in Lagos.
The 25-year-old artist hails from Bekwara, Cross River state.
His musical journey started as a teenage member of his church choir during his secondary school days. In 2015, with the encouragement of other musician friends, he decided to pursue music professionally.
As a result, he released his first single in 2020. The single, titled ‘Miracle’ is a trap-style track that talks about the beauty of things like waking up and being alive, otherwise seen as everyday occurrences.
Faveboy recently released another good song titled WMEDS (Wetin My Eyes Don See) gaining massive acceptance worldwide.
Faveboy Ryme said his silky smooth vocals on his songs will make one feel the distinct quality of his voice and musical style derived from his real-life experiences.
Having started out with calmer genres like trap and RnB, Faveboy Ryme has grown into other musical styles of expression; specifically Afrofusion. The artiste cites Drake as his favorite musician in the game and hopes to work with him someday.
When asked where he draws inspiration from, the artist stated that he is greatly inspired by his personal experiences and his journey thus far.
“Msic is a communication tool above all else. I aim to use my music to reassure people and refer to my skills as a relatable storytelling,” Faveboy Rhyme said. “Since everyone is going through something that is inherently part of the human life and suffering, I hope that people can hear my music and feel understood.”
Where music is concerned, Faveboy Ryme does not see an end and aims to go as far as winning a Grammy someday.
He, however, lamented about a hard-to-nurture relationship with the big artistes in Nigeria, making it difficult to support upcoming talents.
“It is unfortunate that Most A-List artistes hardly support the upcoming artiste but reach out to jump on their collaboration when blown,” Faveboy Rhyme said.
