My sound benchmark for other Afrobeats producers – Sarz boasts


Nigerian record producer Osabuohien Osaretin, popularly known as Sarz, has boasted that he pioneered the sound that has become the benchmark for other Afrobeats producers.

He said singer Wizkid was the first person who understood his vision and identified with his sound early enough.

Speaking in a video message shared via his Instagram page, Sarz said before he made ‘Samba’ with Wizkid, no one was making that kind of sound.

He said, “I made a sound that became a benchmark for other Afrobeats producers to follow.

“I made a sound called ‘Samba.’ I remember no one was making anything like that at that time. I just wanted to do something that is African but at the same time the world in general understands. It was only Wizkid that saw the idea and knew exactly where I was coming from when I made Samba.”
