Meet the 16-year old Nigerian-Canadian who produced a song on Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail

Published

on

Jay Z picked a 16 year old Nigerian Canadian girl named Ebony Oshunrinde to produced a track on his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. Ebony, known also as Wondagurl, got the call from Jay Z after meeting one of his friends who passed her beat to the rap mogul. Ebony is credited as a producer in one of Jay Z’s songs titled ‘Crown’ in the new album. The 12th grader said “It’s a really good feeling. I want to show young people that they can do it.” Her story is inspiring and impressive: after watching a video of Jay-Z and Timbaland working in the studio together at age 9, she began to download music software and teach herself how to use it by watching YouTube tutorials. “I wanted to do the exact same thing that [Jay-Z] did,” she recently told the Star. When she was 14, she made it to the quarter-finals of Toronto’s Battle of the Beatmakers. She won the title the following year, because she is incredible, and went on to sign an exclusive management deal with Black Box.
According to Ian Stanger, a representative with Black Box, “It’s amazing to see somebody with that much talent working as hard as she can to make the most of it at such a young age. It’s her work that people should be paying attention to, not the fact that’s she 16.”
And her work is exactly what people have started to pay attention to. Earlier this year, Oshunrinde sent the beat to her friend Travis Scott, a young rapper and producer. He happened to be in the studio with Jay-Z when he received it – and when he told her that the cut had made it to the album, she thought he was joking.
“Usually that kind of thing doesn’t happen to 16-year-olds,” she explains.]]>

Emelia Arthur

Gospel songstress, Emelia Arthur has added her voice to the roles TikTok stars play in the promotion of songs in Ghana. Musicians, such as Fameye has stated emphatically that TikTok is a major platform that aids in promoting songs but it isn’t a lifesaver for Ghanaian music.

Speaking on Metro TV’s Entertainment Review, the experienced Gospel artiste stated that almost all radio and television stations play her songs although she hasn’t contacted anyone to promote her songs on TikTok. She added that “God promotes my music, not my fellow human. You cannot be more popular than Jesus”. She also accepted the fact that these TikTok starts are doing marvellously well to promote songs on the social media platform.

The inspirational singer also complained about how difficult it is to make financial returns from their works despite the various resources they invest in their music.
