“I’m still a church boy despite doing secular music” – Pheelz
Nigerian producer and singer, Phillip Kayode Moses, professionally known as Pheelz, has stated that despite his interest in secular music, he still considers himself to be a church boy.
The Finesse crooner, who was brought up in the Lagos church headed by his father, a pastor, and learned to sing and play the piano as well as other instruments, said he always knew he would transition from producer to musician.
The legendary producer stated in a recent interview with MTV Base Africa that he was surprised when his hit song Finesse became popular on Tik Tok.
Speaking about his journey as a creative, the 29-year-old said,
“That journey is long, bro. I feel like sometime in my life, I would probably make movie out of all these stories because it’s inspirational to me and I think it can be inspirational to a lot of other people.
Grinding from Coded Tunez down to running YGSBL; making music with Olamide, Fireboy, Adekunle Gold, Lil Kesh, and other artists outside the label… First of all, I wouldn’t change anything for anything because the journey has been beautiful both the ups and the downs.
But I still see myself as that same kid from my church. That same 10-year-old playing the keys and my dad is doing the sermons. I still see myself as that kid in the choir because it’s still the same passion that drives me and has been driving me all these years.”
