It seems Bayanni is finding it quite difficult to believe that his dreams have truly become his reality.
Bayanni, real names Abimbola Oladokun, was recently unveiled as the latest artiste under Don Jazzy’s Mavin records imprint.
In a recent interview, he recalled how a midnight message from Legendary Nigerians hitmaker and Mavin record boss, Don Jazzy changed his life for good. He said:
“I remember having at least four different dreams of me having a session with Don Jazzy. When it finally happened it was like ‘déjà vu’.
On the 22nd of December 2019, around 2:30 a.m, Don Jazzy sent me a direct message on Instagram. I was asleep but for some reason, I was feeling uneasy in my sleep, so I woke up at about 5:30 a.m, picked up my phone and the first thing I saw was a direct message from Don Jazzy saying ‘Bonjour’. It took me at least 15 minutes to process the whole thing and reply. He said he saw my freestyle videos and thought to have a chat with me. First time of meeting Don Jazzy, I felt great! It was at that moment I knew there was no going back,”
He also further explained the true meaning of his stage name, Bayanni. He said:
“Bayanni is of a Philippine origin, and it means someone who is brave, fearless and determined. I was born into a musically inclined family; all my siblings played at least one instrument and my mother would always sing to us at every opportunity she had. I joined the choir at an early age, and when I was about seven years old, I was already playing musical instruments. So, I have always been doing music, but I only decided to do it professionally since 2016.”
It would be recalled that Don Jazzy, had a few weeks ago ‘activated’ a new talent simply identified as Bayanni. The young lad through the music producer’s platform has been launched into the Nigerian music scene.
Taking to his verified Instagram account, Don Jazzy noted that the budding music star passed through the Mavin Academy and he is ready to dazzle the world with his talent.
Taking to his caption section, Don Jazzy wrote:
“It’s that time again when we bring to you another young talent from the Mavin Academy. Meet BAYANNI. He has gone through a series of defining moments and is ready to be unveiled to the world.”
