Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?

My name is Osaze Aigbe, I am 23. I am an upcoming artist from Walsall, I enjoy making music and I work full time as an artist signed for beats bar in Wolverhampton. I also went into hospitals and care homes pre-lockdown to sing. However, during Covid this was not possible.

Currently, I am running a dance challenge with a prize of £1.5k. The winner will also feature in my music video. 

Let’s talk positivity within music

Lyrically and in terms of music nowadays I believe we should tackle mental health issues. This is why I have founded a positivity movement,it’s now a CIC and I work with mental health organisations, and schools. We are giving kids a platform to express themselves musically and lyrically.

Osaze is 23, from Walsall and makes music.

What do you think there needs to be more of? 

I believe there are not enough opportunities for people to make their own beats. I make my own beats and believe people should have the opportunity to be able to make their own. Perhaps a training course, or funding within schools. At the end of the day there’s lots of ways to make money within the music industry, if you can make good beats you can sell and  make money to produce other aspects of your music, being able to pay for music videos etc. It really helps!

I think it’s important to help counselling communities with Covid and understand what people are going through. More funding opportunities for young creatives through local councils and schools, help them get their own identity and uniqueness etc. Have opportunities for people post-covid, a lot of people love live shows and that’ll help people get exposure, really depends how people play it. The music industry has changed, new trends, etc. It’s important to be updated and understand what to do in certain scenarios.
