How I inspired P-Square, other Nigerian artists – Solidstar


Embattled singer, Joshua Iniyezo, aka Solidstar, has claimed that his hit song ‘One In A Million’ inspired a new sound in the Nigerian music industry.

He said when he hit stardom, many thought he was Ghanaian because of his unique musical style.

Speaking in a recent episode of The Honest Bunch podcast, Solidstar specifically mentioned that the remix of the song with 2Baba inspired P-Square’s hit song ‘Possibility’ which featured the same artist.

He said, “It was ‘One In A Million’ that paved the way for me in the music industry. I won the Best New Artist at the Nigerian Music Video Awards with the song. Many even thought I was Ghanaian, they didn’t know I’m Nigerian because my style then was different.

“It was my song [‘One In A Million’] that changed the sound of the Nigerian music industry. It was also the inspiration behind P-Square’s ‘Possibility’ featuring 2Baba.

“The song changed the Nigerian music industry. It came with its unique style. I slowed the tempo down and everyone started copying that pattern.”
