Nigerian producer and singer, Philip Kayode Moses, popularly known as Pheelz, has said he still sees himself as a “church boy” despite doing secular music.
Pheelz, who grew up singing and playing keyboards in the church run by his father, who is a pastor in Lagos, said he always knew he would switch from producer to artist.
He, however, admitted that his hit song ‘Finesse’ went viral on Tiktok by ‘accident.’
He disclosed this in a recent interview with MTV Base Africa.
Speaking about his journey as a creative, Pheelz said, “That journey is long, bro. I feel like sometime in my life, I would probably make movie out of all these stories because it’s inspirational to me and I think it can be inspirational to a lot of other people.
“Grinding from Coded Tunez down to running YBNL; making music with Olamide, Fireboy, Adekunle Gold, Lil Kesh, and other artists outside the label… First of all, I wouldn’t change anything for anything because the journey has been beautiful both the ups and the downs.
“But I still see myself as that same kid from my church. That same 10-year-old playing the keys and my dad is doing the sermons. I still see myself as that kid in the choir because it’s still the same passion that drives me and has been driving me all these years.”
