Popularly known for his catchy Gbema tunes and a dance hall beat, Skoolboy Wizzy has now opened up about the inspiration behind all of his music.
The singer who just released another hit with Friday the Cellphone Man called “My Women” a remix, said as an artist he gets inspired by listening to reggae music and thinking about daily life occurrences (problems, fights, relationship issues and being lonely).
“When I’m listing to these songs I usually create a blank thought in my mind so that I can be able to translate such a thought in a better way that fans will like.
“Another thing I usually do is to write a first draft of my inspiration before I begin editing it,” Skoolboy explained.
Nothing you write is by accident, Wizzy said, so sometimes it takes him one or two weeks to complete a single and make it fit for fans’ taste.
“I feel that if I cannot write down my thoughts, nobody will do it for me,” he told LIB Life.
“I’m a versatile singer; so I already know the kinds of music my fans want. When I’m releasing a new song, it is something good that wil inspired them,” Skoolboy added.
Discussing his new song, Wizzy explained that it was not written; but that it came through feelings, emotions and love stories, which he used to relate to others by including African women and Liberian women.
“I added Friday the Cellphone Man in it because I wanted to do it the traditional way – for our old people. Friday has the spirit and voice to bring old and new together. So I put him on the track so that these two fan bases (old and young) could be able to relate and dance to it,” Wizzy added.
