Bez Idakula Africa’s John Legend is set to take America by storm with his style of music. He’s one artist that sure knows how to promote and brand himself. The name Bez is steadily becoming a household name in the U.S entertainment industry. He recently, kicked off a U.S tour by showcasing in places such as SOBs in New York, The Apple Store, in Soho. He will be featured as a guest on Society HAE, live radio broadcast on May 22nd, 2012, ending his tour May 23rd at the Shrine in Harlem, New York.
He was also the first African artiste to premiere a music video on BET International’s “106 & Park” for his hit single “That Stupid Song”. When I first heard his songs of love, vocal prowess and saw his masterful guitar playing, it reminded me of John Legend. This charismatic young man with his five man band plays intimate acoustic. Bez has opened up for international acts like Tuface, Mike Aremu, South African based Judith Sephuma Asa, Angie Stone, Yolanda Brown, Nneka, and M.I.
The video ‘More You’ single is one of my favorite. Bez is a young rising singer, songwriter and guitarist from Nasarawa State, Nigeria. Born on November 10, 1983, Bez makes alternative soul, a combination of soul, jazz and R&B music.He was educated at Loyola Jesuit College in Abuja and Covenant University, where he graduated with a Bachelors degree in Information Technology. Bez is an amazing performer and a talented young man.
