Year in, year out, quite a barrage of new acts churn out beautiful releases hoping to score a hit, many do strike the right chord from the first listen while others disappear into thin air. One of the easy ways to making it in the music industry is to identify a gap and make concerted efforts into filling that vacant space, most music lovers subconsciously find themselves gravitating towards a talent with a fresh sound, vibe and flavour.
This description aptly describes emerging Fujipop singer Eritundemilade Oluwashola better known as Eri Wonder, just like the ones before him, the likes of Dammy Krane, Terry Apala and Q dot. Eri Wonder effortlessly blends Fuji music with hip hop, the depth of his talent and artistry is worthy of putting him away from the trenches of the underground anytime soon.
Born and brought up in the ever busy town of Mende in Maryland,Lagos , Eri Wonder started out in the Church, harmonized his sound while honing his skills by aligning himself with local basement parties and shows within and outside his hood. The self-acclaimed African Fuji Hip Hop creator combines elements of the local Fuji with western flavour delivered in a unique way thus making beautiful records that carries through as a fresh take on Nigerian sound. It’s not surprising there is chemistry between him and top rated Producers, the likes of Samklef, B black to mention a few.With collaborations with Pasuma Wonder, Small Doctor, to mention a few. It’s crystal clear that the artist is doing something worthy of royalty.
With the rate at which his recent output ‘’Baba Mimo” is enjoying appreciable airplay and open love from fans, Eri Wonder is gradually creating his own niche and sits atop with the crown fitting perfectly on his head.
The visuals for ‘’Baba Mimo’’ was shot in the popular city of Dubai by Tejuosho Pictures alongside a couple of other projects yet to be released.
