Richard Benson Aka Radiyuz is a Port Harcourt artiste and also a Graduate from the Rivers State University of Science and Technology, Over the Years we’ve seen Versatility of Richy as most of his friends call him.
Radiyuz is a Genius when it comes to changing accent, he switches from Rap to highlife as if its nothing
Radiyuz is the true definition of Pure talent, he was asked what he is missing so far in his musical journey, he said “I think it’s Finance and Proper Artiste Management, Sorta like a record label to rebrand me and package me properly for the public” and it’s clearly obvious because not many talents are appreciated in Port Harcourt, But has more possibility at this age as his music has both the new and old school vibe more like a fusion of both worlds.
He released his first single on his birthday way back in 2018 which he titled Shugadaddi it was wildly accepted in Port Harcourt with its Igbo flavor he delivered the Igbo Accent without breaking a sweat, clearly, Radiyuz is a Force to Reckon with. Shugadaddi was an instant hit but lacked proper marketing.
Fast Forward to 2019 he gave another jaw-dropping Song he titled Daddy G.O, where he once again played with words and kept a clean story, everyone that listens to it understands the music and can still dance to it, isn’t that why we say music is a medicine for the soul? It was all over Radio stations in Port Harcourt, But as they say “Being known isn’t enough” you still need promotion which is what Radiyuz is lacking, the world would soon see what great talent he has.
We asked him what kind of artiste and music inspires him he said, he loves listening to RnB, Blues but mostly sad songs, as they bring out deep emotions, Billie Ellish and Adele make songs that he loves, But his biggest influencers are M.I and American Rapper J-Cole.
This year he started a project called “Emotional Thursday” where he drops a minute of storytelling through raps every Thursday on Instagram, But unfortunately he lost his Mum which Affected the production of Emotional Thursday But he has promised his fans to continue very soon.
He recently made a cover of OXLADE‘s Oxygene and it’s lit, here’s a link for you to have a taste of what this guy is made of
