Afrobeat World Artist Based In Nigeria. Singer/ Song Writer/ Producer. "BEFORE THEN" FT/ SARKODIE
Wondaboy (Blessed Edewor,) is far from a novice to Nigeria’s Music Industry. In 2008, passion and a natural born talent led this artist from Delta State and his former band, The Diamondz, to the Star Quest music reality show. The competition launched the beginning of his professional music career when The Diamondz were crowned the winners of the competition for that year.
In March 2011, Wondaboy embarked on a solo career and began to work on a variety of tracks including previously released club hits Overload & Down Low which have enjoyed some radio play and a strong on-line presence. In December of 2012, his track, I Love You, a cover of Omawumi’s record Stay Alive, also generated a significant buzz and drew even more attention to his vocal talents.
Shortly after those promising releases, Wondaboy caught the attention of Lilian N. Blankson from BET Networks with her newly launched company, LNB Entertainment. She handpicked the artist for international branding and promotion which resulted in a major and exciting career renovation.
Destined for international branding, a trip to Kenya resulted in some amazing collaborations and music videos. BET Award nominees Camp Mulla and Wondaboy teamed up to create a hit hip-hop track entitled, “oH mY gAd!!” and immediately shot a fun-filled music video to accompany it.
The next destination for Wondaboy and his team was Ghana where a series of further collaborations were created and music videos were shot. Studio sessions resulted in the hit record “Before Then” which features international BET Award winner, Sarkodie. The track which was produced by Sammie Blacc, became a huge success on international radio & television. The video which was directed by award winning director, Pascal Aka, took over the air waves all over the US, UK & Africa with rotation on Soundcity TV, BET 106 & Park International, Channel O & MTV Base.
Following “Before Then’s” success, Wondaboy released “WAJO,” “KILLIN’ IT” and “ROMEO & JULIE” last year which all made their mark and solidified him as an artist to be reckoned with. Beyond these solo releases, Wonda has also been featured in numerous collaborations with Nigerian & Ghanaian artists making him a very popularly sought after singer. His current release, “ON ME” which was recorded in Ghana with producer HypeLyrix of 3D Pyramid is definitely making waves. The track which is an international Hip-Hop/R&B groove, establishes the artiste independently in a completely different light. Destined for success, Wondaboy also has several club records and additional music videos that are slated for release in the near future. Wondaboy’s upcoming album as a solo artist is being conceived and perfected. Once released, he will be able to fully reveal his vocal abilities and song writing skills worldwide.
