How I inspired P-Square, other Nigerian artists – Solidstar

Singer Joshua Iniyezo, also known as Solidstar, asserts that his popular song ‘One In A Million’ has sparked a fresh wave of innovation in the Nigerian music scene.

Upon achieving stardom, there were numerous speculations about his nationality due to his distinctive musical style.

In a recent episode of The Honest Bunch podcast, Solidstar made a specific mention of how the remix of the song with 2Baba served as inspiration for P-Square’s hit song ‘Possibility’, which also featured the same artist.

He said, “It was ‘One In A Million’ that paved the way for me in the music industry. I won the Best New Artist at the Nigerian Music Video Awards with the song. Many even thought I was Ghanaian, they didn’t know I’m Nigerian because my style then was different.

“It was my song [‘One In A Million’] that changed the sound of the Nigerian music industry. It was also the inspiration behind P-Square’s ‘Possibility’ featuring 2Baba.

“The song changed the Nigerian music industry. It came with its unique style. I slowed the tempo down and everyone started copying that pattern.”
