Music producer/ sound engineer & recording artiste who started producing professionally in 2012 has been doing wonderfully well from there too. The boi is BAD with Ogene fused afro pop beats, and his unique tunes and kicks has turned him into a much sort after producer in the south.

He is also the man behind G’wiz’s “Bosse” that instantly became a hit
Joshua akoh. A.K.A bardbishop is our no.1 Man.
No other beatMaker does the tomba sound better. You need to listen to Mishe’ “Akwa Ibom Ayaya” to have a clue. BardBishop prooved himself in that joint nd since then (Upgrade) He’s the producer behind “Bisola’s big brother naija song”, & has worked with A list artists like Black Face, Daddy Fresh, Sani Danger, silver ceddi, Ice Kid and Don X.
Other producers worthnote in the state include :- Danny P, Clone Baba, Favour Ejekwu (Ejekz) while Nazbeat and the likes of Cow B has drastically slacked muscle in the hustle…
