Award-winning musical producer, Chisom Obinna Onyeke, popularly known as JaySynths, has said a lot of mega stars in the Nigerian music industry have benefited from his work, a testament to his standing as one of the most sought-after producer in the country.
Famed for producing the mega hit, “Case” by Teni, the hit maker has left his imprint in the lives of many artistes whose fame continue to soar by the day and has continued to soar in the fiercely competitive Nigerian music industry.
Apart from producing “Case” (one of the songs that shot Teni to limelight), JaySynths has got many award-winning songs to his credit, saying, “I produced ‘Power Rangers’ also by Teni, ‘Daz How Star Do’ by Skiibii and ‘Ozana’ by Hotkid.”
Others include “Wait” (Teni), “In a Fix” (Ice Prince & Mr Eazi) “Doh” (by Victor AD) and “Obiaato” by Kuami Eugene, among others.
On what prompted him to go into musical production professionally, JaySynths without hesitation said, “my love for it period,” adding that “If ain’t doing music, maybe I’ll be working in an oil company or a reputable organization. I don’t like stress.”
A graduate of Political Science from the University of Abuja, embraced music full-time after he moved from Abuja to Lagos in 2015. Since then, he has not looked back. From being a sought-after keyboardist and bassist, he has become one of the notable producers in the Nigerian music industry.
Armed with the knowledge of the industry, JaySynths knows a thing or two on what to do to take the industry to the next level.
“Artistes should take producers more seriously. Producers should be the richest in the music industry but we are always not regarded as important. I’m sure that would change soon,” he stated.
He also said his mind on what his fans should expect from this year, musically.
“I have been working on different songs with lots of talents and some big-name artistes. Music fans should expect some hits before the year runs out,” he said.
Quite unsurprisingly, he was nominated for the 2020 SoundCity MVP Award in the African Producer of the Year category; a no mean feat considering the number of music producers in the country.
Jaysynths also added that his love for music made him decide to make it a career.
“I believe in making one’s passion one’s profession. Since I have a deep love for music I decided to make it a career. It’s fun being paid for what you are passionate doing,” he stated.
