Singer, rapper and songwriter, Daniel Tuotamuno, aka DanDizzy, is an Internet sensation that often goes to public places to rap about the people and activities around him.

In an interview with Sunday Scoop, he stated that his originality would distinguish him from other artistes in the saturated music industry. He said, “Originality and realness are the things that make me unique. I don’t rap about things I have not experienced. I can only rap about my experiences in a very relatable way for everyone to understand.”

On what influenced his decision to do music, Tuotamuno said “I have always loved music, and from an early age, I knew I was talented.”

Sharing his thoughts on the state of rap music in the country, he said, “I think rappers are really going through a lot because most of the rap songs are not relatable, and Nigerians don’t want to accept pidgin fully.”

The Rivers State-based artiste also stated that he did not believe he had to leave Port Harcourt for Lagos, considered the nation’s entertainment capital, before he could become successful. He said, “I think Lagos is just a location because the Nigerian music industry does not really have a structure. It is just the fact that (the headquarters of most) media platforms are in Lagos and that’s where most of the top players in the industry live. However, I am finding my way around it.”

DanDizzy also noted that his public freestyling sessions are strategic. According to him, he would soon release ‘proper music’.

On why many rappers turn to singers as they stay longer in the industry, Tuotamuno said, “For so long, afrobeats has been given massive media push in addition to funding, but rappers don’t get a lot (of things like that) in Nigeria. Meanwhile, the ‘gatekeepers of rap’ were more focused on punch lines, rather than collaborating (with one another), increasing the numbers, so as to sustain a long lasting culture of rap music in the country.
