Seyi Akerele better known as Shizzy first came to our consciousness when he produced Davido’s hit single ‘Dami Duro’. The HKN producer has however gone on over the years to prove to us that he is not a fluke. Shizzy has produced most of Davido‘s songs including Gobe, Skelewu and Tchelete featuring Mafikizolo as well as ‘I love my baby’ by Star Boy boss, Wizkid. He is also the producer of label boss, Davido’s ‘Fans Mi’ which features American rapper, Meek Mill.

Real names Nifu Haruna, Wizzy Pro is the producer of Patoranking’s Alubarika and Girlie O as well as Phyno’s O Set which features pop duo, Psquare.
