Phyno Pays Tribute to Highlife Music’s Influence on His Artistry

Rapper Phyno has said that highlife genre of music moulded him as an entertainer.

Phyno made this revelation during a recent podcast.

The Enugu-born star said he was raised in a neighbourhood where highlife music was mostly played yet he turned out to become a rapper.

“The Highlife music actually moulded me, it moulded my versatility,” said Phyno. “Growing up, that’s all you hear in my neighbourhood from different windows but even as a young boy growing up, I didn’t want to be a highlife musician, I wanted to rap because hip hop was trendy, the lifestyle and I really wanted to rap.”

Phyno said he made more money producing music for people, who were into highlife music.

“When I started producing I was making a lot of money off production then I realised that the people that paid me more were not hip hop artists. The people that were paying me more were like highlife musicians and not hip hop artists. That was when I grew into it and loved the melodies.”
