Double Six Entertainment music act, Damilare Johnson, known in showbiz as Dami J, has boasted that Wizkid, Davido and other big stars will beg him for collaborations soon.
Dami J, whose debut album is in the works, believes that he is the new big thing coming on the Nigerian music scene.
“Although I adore the sounds of Davido, Wizkid, and other raving stars, they will all struggle to collaborate with me pretty soon,” Dammy J boasts.
According to the graduate of Bowen University, leading musicians who have willingly offered to feature on his forthcoming body of work gives him the confidence that he’s doing something right.
To him, the primary school came and finished like a flash – with tiny recollection of memories. Secondary school was more vivid as he had off-and-on moments with music but he says it was nothing serious as his typical African parents prioritised his academic education.
University, however, presented ‘Dami Johnson’ an opportunity to explore his musical potentials as this was the only time he had a semblance of independence albeit stifled by a ton of rules and regulations of the institution. He was admitted into Bowen University, Iwo, Osun State, to study Mass Communication. Johnson says the admission compelled him to have two ultimate goals – graduate with good grades and to hone his musical skill and be known for it amongst his peers.
The first goal was to make his parents happy. The second was for his own happiness. He graduated and his music resonated beyond the lecture halls of Bowen University, it warmed the hearts of his contemporaries.
Fast-forward to present day. After officially launching his music career in 2018, Johnson, now known by a new stage name ‘Dammy J’, has been signed to a record label, Time Town.
He has gone ahead to release two potentially hit singles ‘Chimney’ and ‘Elebolo’.
The official video for ‘Chimney’ which features ace comedians ‘Brodda Shaggi’ and ‘Officer Woos’, is due for release by the end of July 2020.
