record producer, singer and songwriter Phillip Kayode Moses, better known as
Pheelz, has disclosed that he made his first hit song at the age of 16.
In an interview on 3Music TV’s Culture Daily, the “Finesse” hit-maker explained that he realized his love for music after secondary school and decided to pursue it right after completion. He reveals that “First of All,” a song he produced with rapper and singer Olamide was his first hit.
“I made my first hit when I was 16 years old. It’s a song called first of all by Olamide. Olamide and I have been friends since Alikiba Studio. We intern at Alikiba Studio. I remember stealing Kabasa’s password for his computer then so Olamide and I could work whenever Kabasa goes back home, I’ll stick in the password and we will work. I’ll save it on a memory card and just delete it from the system. That’s how I started working. I left the studio to go start my own because Kabasa said I was ready to graduate. Olamide’s contract too expired and he called me saying I think it’s time we get back together and get to our former vibe. And the first song we made was first of all.”
When questioned about when he began commercializing his craft, Pheelz said it took him a while to mature in the industry.
“I was a young kid in the deep ends so it took me a while to get the business side of things right. Because I was just making music, we were just making hits. When I was 20 going to 21 I had become a bit mature and had some experience in the industry, knowing where to step and where not to step.”
The musician has further announced his new single titled “Stand by Me.”
