Pheelz, whose real name is Phillip Moses, is an award-winning Nigerian producer and singer. He is known for producing hit songs that have charted in Nigeria and Africa as a whole. He discovered his passion for music while he was part of the church choir at age 10. A young Pheelz was intrigued by musical instruments as well as vocals. After high school, he got a job with a record label in Nigeria where he met one of the biggest rappers in Nigeria, Olamide – who was also signed to the record label at the time.
In 2012, Olamide started his record label, YBNL, and he brought Pheelz along as an in-house producer. By age 16, Pheelz had already featured on one of Olamide’s songs, “Going In”. Between 2012 and 2015, Pheelz produced hit records for Olamide and other YBNL signees including Adekunle Gold and Lil Kesh. He soon became a household name and was highly sought after by many artists.
