    Dreeqz: A Star in The Making djWeymo

In the bustling city of Lagos, a new voice is echoing through the streets. Fredrick Aro-Lambo, known by his stage name Dreeqz, is making waves. This gentle, God-fearing individual started his journey in the midst of a church choir. Once shy, he now stands in the spotlight, unable to hide his musical prowess.

Dreeqz's path to music is fuelled by a deep-seated passion, and his songwriting style is quite unique and not set in stone.

The Spark That Ignited a Passion

Dreeqz’s path to music was fuelled by a deep-seated passion. It led him to enrol in music school, a decision that set the stage for his career. Adekunle Gold and Davido, local legends, alongside Chris Brown internationally, have significantly influenced his musical style.

A Tale of Struggle and Aspiration

His debut track “Far Away” (Bad Energy) paints a vivid picture of his struggles. Penned in solitude, the song speaks of the yearning for genuine connections and positivity. Currently, three of Dreeqz’s songs are available on all platforms, with more releases planned for December.

Lagos: A City of Musical Influence

Lagos is not just a city for Dreeqz; it’s an inspiration. It drives him to continually raise his musical standards. The city’s vibrancy and competitiveness ensure he never becomes complacent.

Reflections on the Nigerian Music Industry

Dreeqz views the Nigerian music scene with a mix of hope and realism. He feels the industry has become a place where monetary influence outweighs raw talent. This harsh reality often leads to frustration and a sense of helplessness among emerging artists.

A Unique Sonic Identity

Versatility is Dreeqz’s forte. He strives to make music that inspires listeners to believe in themselves and to never settle for less.

Breaking Through the Noise

For Dreeqz, the biggest hurdle is gaining recognition. New artists struggle to be heard in an industry saturated with established names. Despite this, he dreams of collaborations, particularly with the likes of Bella Shmurda.

The Songwriting Enigma

Dreeqz’s approach to songwriting is not set in stone. Sometimes a melody sparks creativity; other times, it’s the lyrics that lead the way. He keeps his sound fresh by incorporating unique trends into his music.

Lessons from the Industry

The music industry has taught Dreeqz the importance of self-reliance and perseverance. As he works on projects for the upcoming December, he remains committed to his grind.

The Global Stage Awaits

With Afrobeats gaining international recognition, Dreeqz sees a bright future for himself and other emerging artists. He envisions global recognition in the next five years.

A Gateway to Dreeqz’s Music

For those new to his music, Dreeqz recommends “AJE” (daily prayer), a track that embodies hope and resilience, perfect for starting one’s day.

More Than Just Music

Beyond music, Dreeqz has a passion for football and fashion. These interests keep him grounded and connected to the world outside of music.
