Exploits Of Afrobeats Apostle, P Priime

Published

on

For Peace Aderogba Oredope, popularly known as P.Priime, age truly is nothing but a number. At the age of 15, the singer was already making music for leading Nigerian artistes including Zlatan and Fireboy. Music is like blood through his veins; it fills up his nostrils like oxygen, he breathes and lives music.
It’s hardly three years from that time and the gifted teenager has blossomed into one of the torchbearers of Nigerian trending Afrobeats pop culture. Within just a few years, he has amassed a rich catalogue of music credits.
P.Priime’s Midas touch is felt in songs such as Like I Do of Fireboy’s magnum opus, Laughter, Tears, Goosebumps, Gelato by DJ Cuppy, Egungun by Zlatan and veteran indigenous singer Obesere etc. Perhaps, his biggest accomplishment is influencing the sound of YBNL rapper, Olamide with his record of producing seven out of 12 songs in his latest album, Carpe Diem.
“Age means nothing to me,” he notes, adding, “If anything, I feel privileged and I feel like the universe has put me on a pedestal. As a result of that, I’m the voice for the next generation. I’m well brought up and very disciplined, which makes it quite easy for me. I am very much in touch with older people whom I have around me. Their rich counsel help to keep me in check.”
P.Priime’s music trajectory is heavily influenced from his background, growing up in a music-inclined family, where everyone was a chorister. Born March 28, 2002, Peace Aderogba Oredope attended Nuga Paul Schools, Oke-Afa, which is within proximity of Ejigbo area of Lagos, where he was raised.
From his early age, he picked up rudimentary skills of playing music about five instruments such as piano, drums, guitar, saxophone and trumpet. This exposure was the right pivot that he needed to blossom into one of Nigeria’s most sought-after record producers.
He recalls, “I played a wide variety of musical instruments and genre while in the church choir; that made music sort of easy for me because, I already had more than the basic knowledge needed for music production. My parents were all about me going to school, but at the time I was supposed to go, I didn’t get admission because I was too young. Instead of being idle, I went into graphics designing and somehow ended with music production after a while. It came naturally due to my background. They support me fully on right now as it’s quite obvious I’m making waves with it,” he said.
An alumnus of Sarz Academy, the eponymous mentorship platform run by the brain behind Wizkid’s success, P.Priime already has a unique awareness and direction about his own sound.
He explained: “I’m all about limitless and timeless music. Music is the most beautiful thing in the world; I love music so much and I channel in all that love I have for it into all my productions. When you hear my music, I want you to experience the most spiritual and unreal vibrations resonating throughout your body and mind.”

As symbol of inspiration for young talents, perhaps younger ones can draw a lesson or two from the gifted beat maker.

Famous talking drummer and the cultural ambassador of the Ooni of Ife, Aralola Olamuyiwa, simply known as Ara, has recalled how people tried to discourage her from playing the talking drum.
Ara, who is Africa’s first female talking drummer, disclosed that she was told that playing the talking drum might prevent her from having children but she broke the jinx.
”There are some drums females cannot play. I started with the traditional drums. But I evolved over the years. I played different instruments like bass guitar, keyboard, and set drums.
“But I wanted something different, so I started learning how to play the talking drum. People I asked to teach me were skeptical about teaching me because I am a woman. So I am self-taught.
“Although at some point, I was afraid. I was like, ‘what could happen to me?’ They were like, ‘you might not be able to have kids.’ It’s a traditional thing but I broke that jinx,” she said.
