Born & raised in the Southwest of SYDNEY and being from a Nigerian background, B Wise has been immersed in the music scene since the early 2000s. Taking music seriously in 2015 and releasing his first single in 2016, B Wise’s career has taken off tremendously since.
I asked B Wise what his take on the upcoming Australian scene incorporating more colour into it and what it’s like watching the scene grow.
“I think it’s dope. I’m here for it. Seeing more people of colour in the Australian music industry from a rap standpoint…Let’s keep it 100. Rap music is black culture. It’s black artists. That’s where it came from and then for someone like myself, being a part of that culture [Australian rap scene] definitely was tough. The fact you even said yourself it was unheard of seeing someone of colour….Seeing people of colour come through and be recognized is dope.”
I finally thanked B Wise for showing me a Nigerian experience right in my own backyard, and we headed to Sony Studios to hear a sneak peek of his latest track.
B WISE music is available on iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud, YouTube and more!
