There is a good chance that you know his mother, Bukky Wright. The popular Nigerian actress is proud to present her son, Olugbenga Amu-Wright who recently launched a career in music on her platform, Wright Media International.
Olugbenga who has chosen the moniker, Ojjay Wright was unveiled at the last Best of Nollywood Awards in Akure, Ondo State.
At the listening party of his latest single, ‘265 Kritical’ which is his second single, Ojjay revealed that he had to take his destiny in his hands after some of the existing record companies kept him waiting for too long. His first single ‘Hello’ was released in Houston, Texas in June 2015.
The 22 year-old who is a graduate of Biological Sciences from Rutgers University in the United States of America said his first venture into music in 2012 was truncated by his parents who insisted that they would only support him on the condition that he completes his university education.
Having kept his part of the bargain, Ojjay has secured the support of his parents. At the moment, he has embarked on a vigorous promotion of ‘265 Kritical’ and ‘Marry You’. Both tracks are produced by Eben Jazzy.
According to Ojjay, he has devised the strategy of giving the market what they want until he becomes an established name. His main concern now is to be able to step into the studio and deliver. ‘People say I do not have a distinct sound of my own. It does not matter. The artistes on Mavins Records and Five Star Music sound alike. What do you have to say to that?”
In order to create awareness for his arrival on the music scene, Ojjay has instituted the ‘Onyinye Search’ to promote the track ‘Marry You’. “I am looking for a girl who will blow my mind. She will be compensated with a one-on-one meeting with me, and iPhone and appearance in two of my videos. The other strategy to promote my brand is a dance and lyric competition in which you record yourself and friends singing.”
