It is said that “big things come in small packages” this popular idiom aptly relates to the personality of the talented young musical artist OZEE (real name Attah Godwin Ozotu) who is also fondly referred to as the officer with a swag. He is without doubt one of Nigeria’s finest young music act who’s creative control and vibrant personal input are evident in all his works i.e., Designer Girl, Down Down, Nasarawa, Double Double ft Jesse Jagz, Rebirth , among others .
The release of his single Rebirth in 2012 got mixed reactions from the public as it was believed by some to be a “good bye” to music as News had it that he left music for a job with the Nigeria Customs Service. Amidst the News he convinces us that a Customs Officer could still display his talent in other fields with the release of three new singles Zaman Tare, under pressure and Wakajo. He went ahead to shoot videos for his single Rebirth, Down down and Zaman Tare.
Doubts were led to rest when he performed in uniform during the Nigerian Customs Service World Customs International Day celebration in Abuja which was aired live on the networks of NTA and AIT nationwide to the applause of dignitaries at the event venue and of course television viewers. His superlative performance weeks later at a dinner in honour of the visiting Secretary General of the World Customs Organisation got him appreciative handshake from the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Customs Service and the Secretary ‘General of the World Customs Organization.
He is fast using his musical Talent as a powerful tool for Customs communication apart from keeping it real as an entertaining artiste. Ozee is surely leaving a Double Double life storming the industry with good music at the same time carrying out his duties as an officer of the NCS. He is presently working on a 12 track Album with two songs dedicated to promoting The Nigerian Customs Service; which will be out soon.
His new status gives fans a clearer understanding of Rebirth as he comes out with a “Reborn” passion to use his talent as an artist who knows where he is headed for. The brand OZEE embodies talent, intellect, confidence and class, it extends beyond the average perspective in which the Nigerian Artist is perceived.
He has shown that being an entertainer does not necessitate a reckless or irresponsible lifestyle as characterised by some Artistes.
OZEE is without dispute an artist with a class indeed an OFFICER WITH A SWAG.
