Sarz, whose real name is Osaretin Osabuohien, is a Nigerian beatmaker and musician whose passion for music began when he was a youngster, influenced by late-90s American hip-hop artists.

Sarz, who was born on March 17, 1989, in Benin City, Edo State, is most known for the tag “Sarz On The Beat/Really” that appears at the opening or conclusion of all of his music compositions.

He received his primary education at All Saints Primary School and his secondary education at Goodwill Secondary School.

He sold his first beat when he was fifteen years old, and after creating “See Drama” for Nigerian rap pioneer Lord of Ajasa in 2007, he was launched into the public. ‘Beats By Sarz’ is in great demand due to his production credentials on several songs by contemporary Nigerian performers such as eLDee and Reminisce.

In 2012, he contributed four songs to the Empire Mates Entertainment compilation album. However, it was later that year, with his breakthrough debut song “Beat of Life (Samba)” starring pop superstar Wizkid, that he made the most impression on the Afropop industry.

Sarz’s distinctive and innovative beat-making style has elevated him to the forefront of the global afrobeat scene. His discography includes collaborations with artists as diverse as Chris Brown, Drake, and Wizkid.

Sarz has been able to break fresh talent such as Niniola and Flash thanks to an ever-expanding creative approach.
