16 YRS OLD NIGERIAN WONDER GIRL TO PRODUCE DRAKE's SONG…
Landing a production credit on Jay Z‘s Magna Carta Holy Grail is already working its magic on Nigerian Ebony “Wondagurl” Oshunrinde’s career. The teenager, who constructed the sound for Hov’s “Crown,” is now in talks to work with Drake.
“We went into the studio here in Toronto,” the 16-year-old said. “He wants a banger. That’s what he told me. So that is what I am going to make him.”
Unfortunately, they haven’t made much progress since their first studio session got cut short. “I had to go because my mom was calling me home,” she explained.
Her “Wondagurl” alias is a nod to Drizzy’s producer Boi-1Da, who gave “feedback” on beats she’d send his way. The two met after her Battle of the Beatmakers victory in 2009.
Now, with Drake and Jay in her corner, the talented youngster is swiftly becoming a sought-after commodity, juggling the music industry and high school. “I’ll just continue to make beats at my house after I’ve done my homework,” she said.
In the future, Oshunrinde hopes to work with Timbaland, Kendrick Lamar, Pusha T and Kerri Hilson and wants to inspire fellow female beatmakers. “Before all of the beat battle stuff, I thought there were a lot of female producers. Now that I am in the industry, I see that there are none. It would be great to see more females in the game. You are never too young to just do it.” Giztzzz… madetv!
