Krizbeat react to Pana's beat

Krizbeatz is fast becoming a popular name in the Nigerian music scene . Apart from producing Tekno ’ s hit song , Pana , in 2016, he has produced songs like ‘ Temper’ by Skales , ‘ For Life’ by Runtown, ‘ Shele Gan Gan ’ by Lil Kesh , ‘ Weekend Vibe ’ by Seyi Shay , but to mention a few .

He has also produced for foreign artistes like Drake , Omarion, TY Dollar sign , Diamond Platnumz and Vanessa Mdee.
While speaking with Saturday Beats , Krizbeatz revealed that even though Tekno ’ s song , ‘ Pana ’ was one of the biggest songs in 2016 , he didn’ t originally produce the beat for Tekno .

He explained, “ I met Tekno online and he told me he wanted us to work together because I usually shared beats with him online. I went to his house , played him some beats and he liked them . But there was a particular day he visited my studio while I was producing for another musician .

 Apparently, the artiste didn’ t like the beat but Tekno fell in love with it . We later had an agreement that I should make another beat for the artiste while Tekno took the first one . ”

According to him , when the original owner of the beat heard ‘ Pana , ’ he called him to commend his effort but didn’ t know it was the same beat that he rejected.

He said , “ Even when I told him it was the beat he rejected, he argued that it was better than what he heard . I guess since Tekno is a very good producer as well , he knows what good beats sound like . But I didn’ t know he was a producer until I visited his house .

“ I laugh when people say Tekno is arrogant because he is one of the most humble people I have met. In life , if you are known for always speaking your mind , people perceive it as arrogance. ”

Despite his success, Krizbeat admitted that it was not a jolly ride to attract top musicians at a time .
He narrated , “ It was really a challenge to get people to hear what I had to offer at a time .

 There is the belief that once a song is not produced by a known producer , it is not good enough. I went to some artistes and tried to convince them to listen to my production , but they never did .

“ I can never forget how I was treated and felt when I went to a very popular artiste ’ s house . I took a yellow taxi cab and I ended up spending N 50 , 000 in a day without achieving anything . He said we should reschedule the meeting and he didn’ t call me back until I became who I am today . But I didn’ t behave as if we had met before when he reached out to me . ”
