“Am from delta state okpanam oshimili north local government. Am a music producer and studio engineer”;
“Music has been a significant part of my life!;
When asked about how he came into music Production,he said he took interest in music production at a very young age as he started playing the piano in his local church choir and went into music production during his secondary school days.
“,I started music production back in my secondary school days and i played the piano in my church choir which helped me keep up with my everyday practice since i didn’t own a piano to practice with.”
Richard King also talked about how he met former Mo Hits” Superstar KSwitch” and how the meeting changed the cause of his music production career;
“I kept producing till i had my big break when i had an encounter with kswitch and we did a song titled “Go Down Now” .
“it was back in 2011 when i was in my studio cooking beats as usual when my friend called me up and asked me to send any dope beat of mine that he was with kswitch at that time and so i did. “He heard it and decided to run verses on it and that gave birth to “Go Down Now” .”
“After that project,I worked on another project with omoakin titled “Do Me Wayo” then i had to take some time off from music to focus on school. I graduated from the university of portharcourt where i studied linguistics and communication studies in the year 2014.”
“I Got back to the music scene aftet taking some time out to perfect my craft. And now i can say i have mastered the arts of music production as well as sound engineering with my unique sounds and beats. I have recently done a couple of production for music acts like Dr Barz,Tripp, Kella Etc.
He talked about music producers not getting the necessary credit and royalty for the hard work they put in!
“I have been in the industry for a long time,and i know how all this things work!
“As a music producer,you dont get the necessary credit for the work you put in to make an artist “Blow” or get a hit song. Without a good producer,there would be no great artist like Wizkid or Davido!
“Thats why most Music producers like Don Jazzy,Maleek Berry, Mutay etc ,now have their own Songs” just to get some recognition!”
“I also recently did a song titled “Show Love” Which featured Dr Barz,Kella and Tripp and lots of people have been talking about it”!

“One of the sweetest part of the show is the free beat Wednesday show where i give out free beats and call on dope artists to run verses on those beat;”
And “show love fridays” where i step out with my team and a guest to go extend alms of love to the less Privilege”
