I started producing music at age 12 – Pheelz

Award-winning Nigerian producer, Phillip Kayode Moses, professionally known Pheelz, has revealed that he was 12 years old when he started music production.

The ‘Finesse’ hit maker opened up on his journey during an interview with Hot 97 FM, New York, United States.

According to Pheelz, he started out as an intern under legendary producer ID Cabasa when he was a teenager.

He explained further about how he learnt how to play musical instruments like saxophone, drums, keyboard and guitar, before starting the internship programme.

Pheelz also noted that he was a genius in school, particularly in Further Mathematics, but music took all his time.

He said;“I got my first internship at 12. It was a huge record label called Coded Tunes in Nigeria and by one of the biggest legends in the music production industry. His name is ID Cabasa.

“That was who I interned under, then started learning the rocks. Before that I had thought myself how to play the keys, how to play the drums, a little bit of the flute and the piccolo and the saxophone, and the guitar and all that. But that internship really like launched me into the full music producer/songwriter vibe.”

In other entertainment news, actress and comedian, Chioma Omeruah, popularly known as Chigul, has revealed that she got married to her husband as a virgin.

The Nollywood star also said she was 33 years old when she settled down with her hubby, but they got divorced after a year.

She shared her story via social media in reaction to a post by Elsie, ex-wife of comedian, Basketmouth, talking about women, marriage and children after their split.

Chigul said people advised her to give birth to a child during her marital crisis as it will save her marriage but she was of the opinion that it wasn’t necessary.

The actress said; “We were not perfect, there were good days I won’t lie. It just got to a place where we both didn’t care anymore. I have been made to believe that it was my job to keep that afloat and the fact that it sank, I take on my head.

Would I have changed anything about it? No, because it happened for a reason. I’m happy it happened at one year with no children and no attachments. I married at 33, I married a virgin. That was my first ever anything and it was supposed to be special and last.”
