    Meet Bmj: Port Harcourt’s Rising Music Sensation Boluwatife

Meet Bmj, also known as Gentle Jeremiah, a talented musician hailing from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. His musical journey began over a decade ago when he started doing covers for popular songs on the radio.

Meet Bmj, also known as Gentle Jeremiah, a talented musician hailing from Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria.

A Passion for Music

“My interest in music started back in 2008-2009 as a listener. I began doing covers for popular songs on the radio. Then, I mistakenly came up with a song of my own, and it was good. Since then, I have been composing.”

Finding Joy in Music

For Bmj, music isn’t just a career—it’s a passion. “I relax with music, I clean with music, even work with it. It’s the only thing that gives me real joy; everything else is secondary.”

Musical Influences

When it comes to musical influences, Bmj’s playlist knows no bounds. “I really don’t have one person I can point to because I love good music. You can find anyone doing good music on my playlist.”

The Story Behind His Latest Single

Bmj’s latest single, “I Did,” is a reflection of his frustration with society. “I was just tired of our nation and society when I started writing that song. As a hustler, I sometimes get frustrated with everything. I personally think our nation/society is not a good ground for young people struggling to make it in any industry.”

Lagos Influence on His Music

As an artist in Lagos, Bmj’s sound is a unique blend of Pidgin and English. “I love the music from Lagos, but I’m not easily influenced. I don’t make modern music the usual way; I do it my way.”

The Nigerian Music Scene

Bmj is excited about the current state of the Nigerian music scene. “I personally think it will get bigger with time because social media is doing a lot and changing a lot.”

Unique Elements in His Music

Bmj believes his music stands out due to a mixture of good lyrics, melody, and vibe. “My songs are simply good. I believe they can be played anywhere and enjoyed by the elderly or young audience.”

Evolution of His Music

“Music has changed from what it used to be. Back then, my songs used to be long both lyrically, but now I make modern music with my style of singing.”

Impact on Listeners

“I hope my music impacts listeners in a positive way. Judging from what I have seen with my small fan base, that’s what it will do.”

Challenges in the Music Industry

“The most challenging aspect of being a new artist in today’s music industry is funding. I have to do everything myself, and it’s not easy.”

Collaborations and Future Projects

“I would love to work with Lojay, Buju, Olamide, Fireboy, just to mention a few. I listen to them, and I like what they do.”

Songwriting Process

“I start with melody before proceeding to pen and paper. Melody always comes first for me.”

Staying Unique in the Industry

“Honestly, I hear trends from the radio, taxi, friends, or when I’m chilling outside. But I don’t have any trendy songs on my phone; that’s how I maintain my unique sound.”

Lessons from the Industry

“Anything is possible; just don’t stop. That’s the biggest lesson the music industry has taught me so far.”

Connecting with Fans

“I’m currently going on a campus tour with a rapper here in Port Harcourt. He has a song called ‘This Year’ with Magnito.”

The Future of Nigerian Music

“So far, I’m impressed. I think it’s what everyone has been working for. I also think it’s wrong to give credit to one or two people because it has been a combined effort.”

Message to Listeners

“They need to care for each other, love, and look out for their loved ones. Words without action are nothing.”

Outside of Music

“Besides music, I’ll just be working and enjoying myself. Maybe play snooker sometimes, but I spend more of my time putting melodies together.”

Future Plans

“In the next five years, I envision having a bigger fan base and delivering good music to my fans all over Africa and beyond.”

“I have a song called ‘Low,’ which is my first release. It’s currently on Audiomack and will be on every platform by the weekend.”
