Nigeria: Ghanaian-Born Nigerian, Dan Drizzy, Gets Into His Stride


Ghanaian-born Nigerian singer, Daniel Odum aka Dan Drizzy, ended 2020 in grand style when he crafted his first EP with a variety of African melodies.

The music artist, no doubt, got into his stride with the release of his debut Extended Playlist (EP) “Business with God”, early this year, making himself one of the artists to watch out for.

His outstanding melodies creating skills, sound arrangements, and song writing abilities have put him in the spotlight in Ghana and across Western Africa.

His urge to do music started when he lived with his father in Nigeria, who always listened to indigenous percussion influenced music.

Dan Drizzy joined a music group HOV Gang with some friends he met in his university days. Unfortunately, they never produced a song as they ended up disbanding.

Later on he moved to South Africa where he worked at a studio that made Kwesta, a South African rapper and songwriter.

Luckily for Drizzy, he had the privilege to watch Kwesta record his album. This increased his interest in pursuing a career in music.

He had to move back to Ghana to pursue his dream, where he met Solomon Adu Antwi, a Ghanaian born celebrated Hip life expert who performs under the stage name Yaa Pono. Antwi immediately got Dan Drizzy involved in his Uptown Energy project.

Dan Drizzy has a lot of unique sounds and his style of music can be described as West African contemporary pop music. His music is real, urban and catchy mixed with the amazing African touch.
