Few years ago, Banky W stormed the Nigerian music scene with the his then hit single, 'Ebute Meta', which was a sample of Rihanna's 'Umbrella'. He was then new in the Nigerian music scene as an America returnee. Now, Banky W has placed himself on the map of Nigeria's music industry.
Same can be said of Sauce Kid, Tiwa Savage and other returnees from outside Nigeria that have become relevant in the music industry in Nigeria today.
Now, Joseph Bayo Oluwasegun Olumide, a London returnee singer with the stage name, Olu-Shegs, has become the latest addition of returnees taking the music industry by storm.
Born September 8, this Westminster central London, UK-born Nigerian international recording artiste; rapper; singer; music producer; entrepreneur and actor, started his music career at age seven .
His hit single, 'Gba mi lago (Call my phone)' was people's favourite. In 2010, he travelled to London and recorded three more singles, 'Holla Back Son', 'Rule the World' and 'Don't Cross the Line', which he collaborated with London based artistes; Smokes and Silk J.
He shot a video for his 'Gba mi lago (Spliff Version)' single few years ago.
Olu-Shegs has now released a new smash hit single titled 'Roll it Shake it'. The song has enjoyed favourable downloads online and replays. With the rate at which his music career is shooting high, Shegs might become the next big thing to happen in Nigeria's music industry.

i think this is a Nigerian returnee who wanna invest his talent back home. It is not a bad news to me. Does it have to be Genevieve just bought a new pair of shoes or Omotola is doing her hair for you guys to consider a good news. Mehn, this is a much better news to me. Reply this thread
