Music titan Terry G is 29 today. Born as Gabriel Oche Amanyi at the Food Basket Of The Nation, Benue state on March 17th 1986. Gabriel might not go down as a music legend but his impact in the music industry is second to not many people.
He successfully carved a different niche for himself and his sound is like no other in the music industry.Terry G is also very talented. He produces, writes, singes, directs and even plays several music instrument. Not many new school artistes can do half of the things he does.
His sounds are for the street, 100% but over the time those who don’t belong there have been able to relate to his uptempo and often “spiritual” songs. We look at 5 of his many street bangers that stand out.
Love U Sexy: Not a hit as compared to the other songs on this list, but it is the song that put Mr. Terry Gon the map so it will be unfair to leave it out of this glorious list.
He featured Ayzee on the record which had one of the best videos at that time when it was released. The video was shot in South Africa, which remains Terry G‘s second home when it comes to shooting music videos.

The video was shot in a “hospital” and still enjoys airplay until today.
Apako Master: Apako Master is one of Terry G’s most viral singles to date and was released in 2012. The song got an a.k.a for Terry G and he has since been referred to Apako Master, the song is that big.
The video is one of Terry’s craziest yet.
Troway: Troway (Throw Away) was lifted off Terry G’s album Ginjah Ur Swaggah. Trowey is an uptempo single that has a meaning to it. It urges people to throw away their problems and their enemies.
The video was pretty creative and depicts the meaning of the song. Watch to find out
