Music Is A Tough Hustle For Upcoming Artistes – Weiser

One of the new cats buzzing in the growing Nigerian Afrobeats scene is Adekunle Boluwatife Oluwagbemileke who goes by the stage name Weiser. He has evolved from an ordinary street music act to emerge on the stables of Hydeli Records under which he is now having his music tutelage. He is subtly taking the Nigerian music industry by storm with his unique spiced up Afropop sound.

Weiser is a talented singer and a songwriter who is leaving no stone unturned to get his music career to its peak. Growing up, Weiser was inspired listening to the likes of Qdot, Olamide, Seyi Vibez, Zinoleesky and Young Jonn and he is musically influenced by Tope Alabi and Esther Igbekele.

Speaking about the challenges he had encountered while pushing his music in the industry;

“I have encountered a series of challenges including not having enough funds to pay my producer, bloggers, etc. Music is a tough hustle for upcoming artistes. I’ll go to shows, beg to perform.  There was a time one of my former producer back then told me to come for a show, I got there and he snubbed me immediately we got there, I started hustling to perform on my own, the MC kept telling me to calm down until everyone left, only two people were left when the MC later called me to perform” says Weiser

He doesn’t have a particular genre, which his music is classified under, but he describes his sound as “a new flavor of spiced up Afropop” and says the situation around him drives his music and greatly influences his songs.

Weiser bagged a diploma in Applied Aviation Science at OAU-Ile Ife and then went ahead to Study Biological Sciences at Adeleke University, Ede where he also bagged A Bachelor’s Degree in Biology.

Talking about his relationship with his record label. Weiser stated that, “the label in charge of my music career have been so active and supportive, I’ve never had any reason to complain, and they’re like a family to me. God bless the Chairman of the label Dr. Taye Olabode, the management and staff of HYDELI RECORDS Worldwide.”
