All The Way From Bariga, Meet ‘Spacy Billz’

Mathew Ekundayo - Press Release

 

Many music creatives started off from the street, with no help nor motivation from the system, Spacy’s story isn’t any different. Spacy Billz, real name Adeosun Toheeb Bamidele was born in Lagos on the 13th of May, 1995. He hails from Abeokuta North in Ogun state.

Spacy Billz lost his dad at an early age, with the whole sudden pressure and responsibilities, Spacy Billz chose Music to express his feelings. He started rapping and writing music while in Secondary school hoping onto Music to pave way for him out of his hood, Bariga.

Bariga, the hood full of talents also has its vices. Few artists have emerged big into the Nigerian Music industry from the part of Lagos, Bariga including Lil Kesh, Olamide, 9ice, and ID Cabasa. Spacy Billz steadily working towards reaching the heights some of these stars have attained and definitely surpass.

 

 

He derives motivation from the late Dagrin and also admires the great Baddo, Olamide. Spacy’s music is different as it’s relatable and cuts across.

In 2013, with the help of ‘High B smart’ (Spacy Billz’s roommate in Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Ogun state (MAPOLY)), he was able to put out two singles he recorded with his school fees. Since then, he knew there was no going back. He has since then dropped songs and after songs, gaining new grounds and fans. Spacy Billz has shared stages with the likes of Zlatan Ibile, Olamide, Lil Kesh, Naira Marley, Small Doctor, and many other top Nigerian stars.

His first official body of work was released under his music label ‘Spacy Records’, an EP released in May 2020 titled ‘Bariga The Ep’. The project resonates with him with his root Bariga, telling his own story in his unique way.

‘Bariga The Ep’ has been getting great reviews across platforms since release and has certified Spacy Billz as a regular who is going to be here a long time. ‘Bariga The Ep’ contains great Hip Hop and Afropop content with collaborations from interesting acts. Spacy Billz intends to change the world with his music, one line at a time.
