Chimy Drops New Album, His Musical Journey

With lots of talented Southern singers like Burna boy and Omah lay making waves across the international music scene, a lot of attention has shifted to the musical scene in the southern  part of Nigeria with a plethora of talented artists springing up every day. 

These set of talented young and hungry artists are always grinding hard and putting out quality music hoping to break into the mainstream soon. 

Despite the many challenges that comes with being an independent artist and coupled with limited resources to promote their musical contents, these artists have been able to build an organic and loyal fanbase across the country which is quite very impressive. 

One of such artists is the super talented and ladies favourite Chimy. 

Chimy has been making massive waves across the city of Port-Harcourt and other parts of the south south with his unique style and alluring vocals, winning lots of fans with each song he drops.

Born Chimuanya Tobenna Okereke, Chimy is a native of Anambra state but he was born and raised in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. 

He grew a bone for music while watching his elder brother who is a rapper, rehearse and throw lines. This cultured into songwriting while he develops into a singer/songwriter with influences from the likes of Timaya, D’banj, Flavour, Burna Boy and Mr Eazi as he grew older. He started making music professionally in 2017. 

He released his official single “Text Back” in the same year and and later on took out time to learn music production and sound engineering.

He classifies his music as “Afro Fusion” because his sound was chiseled by afrobeat, highlife and reggae influences at a high propensity. 

His lyricism drips with witty and cheerful sensuality which has undoubtedly won him a special place amongst the female folks.

He is popularly known for hit singles like ‘2 Seconds’, ‘Concept’ which features Kiienka & Veen, and the most sensational of them all; ‘Trips & Munchies’ which features Dr. Barz and Dandizzy and is the first single off his upcoming album ‘Major Curing’. 

His single ‘Trips & Munchies’ has racked an impact over 300 thousand streams across multiple streaming platforms.

 He recently got a nomination alongside The Cavemen for the Next Rated category at the Galaxy Music Awards and currently signed to 9 Figures Empire.

‘Major Curing’ is Chimy’s debut music album which he started working on two years ago. 

It is a selection of 9 songs amongst an array of 30 songs recorded around this period of time. 

The inspiration for this LP came, after the young artist slipped through the grip of death in a fatal accident leaving him with an aftertaste and a yearning for a ‘Major Curing’. 

This LP is deeply saturated with afro-beat overtones, promising a witty but Afrocentric sonic experience.

 With production from a bunch of relentless creatives from the southern part of Nigeria like renowned producers Doka Shot, Veen, Jimohsoundz, SoundChef, Urktave, Slow Zeus & Chimy himself.

The LP also boasts of verses from emerging top guns & lyricists in the entertainment scene of southern Nigeria; the ilk of Dr Barz, Dandizzy, E-Sleek, Hypabole & Nova Bodo respectively.
