Port Harcourt’s Dandizzy earned best kept secret status on the internet in 2018 for buzzy tracks like “Uncle Shuga Daddy” and “Who Goes Der,” in 2019 which show his gift for candid lyrics and chameleonic flows. One minute, he’s warbling his way through a song’s bridge before hitting the boosters and unleashing a downhill sprint of a verse, making each song feel like a varied and dynamic world unto itself. Steadily delivering fresh offering of pop, hip-hop, Dandizzy emerged years ago and quickly earned a huge name for himrself, garnering over thousands of worldwide streams and high-profile media attention.
Dandizzy seems like the next in the lineage of rappers like Blah, or Skallah: distinctly southern, with poise and insight beyond their years and a lack of hubris. Dandizzy’s tales of hustling and growing up are animated by his journalistic eye for detail, macabre humor, and well-honed sense of self. It’s unclear just what this young artist has in store for 2020 but it seems likely this will be the last year he can be called a best kept secret.
Thus far, Dandizzy’s playpen has been one of the most joyful places in the nigerian music industry. Enjoy his new single titled “Woskey”.
