With the rise of even more superstars off the genre, drill music is evidently gaining more grounds across West Africa, and especially in Nigeria. From the country’s Abuja and Alté scenes, the industry has witnessed the breakthrough of Psycho YP, Zilla Oaks, Odumodublvck, Laime amongst others, and about to be added to that list is RMZ with his new song, ‘Abeg’.
Originally from Delta state in south-southern Nigeria, his musical career only took proper shape after he moved to Abuja to find a community that would further fuel his dreams. A product of that decision in the right direction is his new release, Abeg.

With prominent past collaborations with Psycho YP, Tomi Obanure, Odumodublvck, Zilla Oaks and other renowned names in the scene, RMZ is well on his way to global impact. He mentions this in Abeg, with lines as:
“My Life be running fast, faster than a teaser…”
The song is delivered with a sing-rap style that is peculiar to RMZ and would not only make the listener bop to its rhythm, but also make them anticipate his EP project, set to be released later this year. This highly anticipated 6-track project is a testament to his ability to seamlessly navigate various genres and effortlessly captivate listeners with his infectious melodies and thought-provoking lyrics.
Moreover, to further describe RMZ as a “complete” artist, he has pieces as a visual artist that set him apart as one-of-a-kind. He works with Cruise Gang, a leading streetwear brand in Lagos, to create eye candies that are almost irresistible.
This merger of his love for music and art does a great job at helping RMZ relate better with his fast-growing fanbase and lovers of urban culture. When New York drill meets art and African-ness, RMZ is born, and Abeg is only the beginning of a million more milestones ahead of the superstar.
