What good music means to me – Singer Notfemii
Fast-rising US-based Nigerian singer, Olusegun Femi Adeyemo, better known as Notfemii, has staked a huge claim on the music scene with the quality of music he has churned out in the last three years of his exploits in the entertainment world. He is an Afrobeat and contemporary R&B singer crafted with musical sagacity and cutting edge of the likes of Kizz Daniel, Joeboy and Adekunle Gold.
According to him in a recent interview, he doesn’t possess the gruffness of the street artistes or make music with only danceable beats but with deep lyrical content that brings a story to life and conveys an emotion or a feeling.
“Unlike many songs out there that really don’t have meaning, the unique thing about my music is my voice, my cadence and also my range in music; I am very versatile with my sound. Good music to me is any song you can relate or at least vibe to, the listeners have to have a connection with your songs most of the time.
Notfemii is presently an undergraduate of Morgan State University, Maryland, USA. He is uncannily blessed with the ability to play any song on almost any musical instruments as long as he hears it.
According to him, he started music when he was just 8 in primary school. Even as at that time he could play various musical instruments. But professionally, music started for him in 2017. His first single titled “Uncomfortable” was produced by him. The beat for the song, as he said, was produced in his room and sent to friends for mixing and mastering. And when the song dropped family and friends knew a star was born.
The first single was originally released in 2018 but refixed and eventually released on March 20, 2019. He followed up the good work with another single “Wanting More” on December 25, 2019, and his third single, “Angie” featuring Dremo dropped April 17, 2020. It was mixed and mastered by Reverb.
His best Nigerian artistes include Style Plus, Oritse femi, 2baba, Fela, and Adekunle Gold.
“At different points in my life, these were the artistes I vibed to,” he said.
Notfemii is presently unsigned to any record label but confident the future holds a lot of promises. He hails from Osun State in Nigeria.
