Bez has lived up to the hype with his many LIVE performances at Hennessy Artistry Concert Series, Rhythm Unplugged Concert, Lagos International Jazz Festival, Asa Live in Lagos, Most Beautiful Girl In Nigeria pageant, Sax Appeal and the Maiden edition of the Smooth FM Live Acoustic Session, amongst other notable performances.
Bez is currently working with one of Nigeria's most gifted producers, Cobhams Asuquo. Together they have crafted a sound that can be succinctly described as a breath of fresh air.
Bez's music style is a hybrid of Jazz, Soul, and R&B, a delicious potpourri of sounds he calls Alternative Soul. Though quite different from the ever-popular Afro hip-hop genre in Nigeria, he believes the quality of his music will carve a niche by itself taking him to greater heights as he takes this life long ride, creating and sharing his music with the world.
