How did you come about the name, Geniuzz?
I was raised in Jos by my parents Zakka and Rahila Deyin Deshi. My stage name is Geniuzz and I’m a rap singer and an Afro pop artiste. Back then in Jos, I used to play football, be in politics and a whole lot of things, and got my friends calling me Geniuzz, so I felt why not adopt the name.
Your career so far?
Over the years, I have been working with a lot of people and I maintain most of them on the EP from Jos, as I have been working with them over time.
What should we expect from you and the new EP?
My whole life is in the hands of God and I am planning for a legendary status, working hard to do solid music and improving myself. From the EP you should expect the Geniuzz vibe. You have to listen to it to know.
