Rave, whose real name is “Wilfred Utere” is a fast rising pop sensation signed with CADILLY Entertainment and originates from the South South Geo political zone of Nigeria. Best known for winning the national dance competition ‘Maltina Dance All’ Season 8 in 2014, Rave is quickly making his mark in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
Rave who happens to come from an artistic home is the third son amongst a family of six. It therefore comes as no surprise that he is following in the musical footprints of his elder brothers: LERIQ who is presently a producer for Aristokrat Records and Ed iZycs, label mate and a jazz musician/ video director.
Inspired by his idol Michael Jackson, Rave started as a dancer but has gradually evolved into a seasoned choreographer. He has starred in a variety of high profile music videos and carried out outstanding performances at several musical concerts around the country.
Rave is already developing a strong online presence, and is working towards introducing pop music as a genre that people will grow to know and love in Africa.
He hopes that through his music people will find the courage to be unique and creative as he seeks to become an international brand in the near future.
Daniel Tuotamuno Darius, better known as Dan Dizzy by his fans, is a young Rap and Hip Hop performer hailing from Opobo Town in Rivers State of Nigeria. He spent his formative years and early adulthood in the city of Port Harcourt. A Computer Science sophomore of the University of Port Harcourt, he discovered his strong connection and affinity for great music quite early in life. Growing up to the sound of his Pastor father singing in the choir, and also picking up the sounds of the “streets,” he found himself especially inspired by a young Whizkid.
He set off on his professional musical journey in 2009, and has not looked back since. His strongest musical influences are Whizkid, Olamide and Drake.
“I’d feel strange and incomplete doing anything different from music,” he says, though he does admit that if he were not in the music industry, he’d probably be pursuing a career in IT and Computer Engineering.
Dan Dizzy has garnered his fair share of accolades and recognition for his work. A few of these are:
Winner, Hot Mic (Rap Competition) hosted by Media Works (2012)
Voted Port Harcourt’s best Rapper (2014, 2015)
Sprite Tripple Slam Rap Competition – (2015, Port Harcourt) Winner
King of the Mic – (2015) – Winner
Rhythm Rap Culture (2015) – Winner
Global Ambassadors Achievement Awards (Next Rated Artiste) Winner
Icons Path Magazine (Next Rated Artiste) Winner
Uniport’s Artiste of the Year (2017)
He released his first single entitled “Slowly” in 2015 to rave reviews, and has a string of fresh, hard-hitting tunes in the works with Cadilly Entertainment.
He identifies Whizkid, Mr. Eazi and Drake as artistes he’d like to work with professionally, and considers Reggae/Dancehall as a genre he would eventually like to experiment with. At some point in his musical journey, Dan Dizzy would especially cherish performing on the world renowned BET stage.
