Yemim

Formerly known as Wizerd, a name under which he released his first track, Opeyemi Ogundiran, now known as “Yemim” (a coined acronym from the last four letters of his name Opeyemi with an “M” for music), rose to prominence with his debut song “Highlife,” which was released in 2020 and amassed thousands of streams and significant airplay.

The Nigerian singer-songwriter, who lists DMX as one of his first influences, debuted professionally in 2019 and has since put out nearly 12 singles and an EP. Yemim’s major break occurred when he independently published the languid, catchy song “Highlife (Turn Up),” which went on to become a breakout hit in Nigeria and garnered him a lot of exposure, accumulating over 100,000 listens across all platforms.

Having been influenced by wonderful music, regardless of the performer, but particularly by Wizkid, Davido, Burnaboy, Omah Lay, and Adekunle Gold, among others, Yemim has grown to respect their work, adore their talents, and empathize with the message they are trying to convey via their songs.

Yemim’s music has a vibrant Afrobeat vibe with classic pop influences, making it unique, artistic, and sensual. His complete creative embrace of cross-genre fusion as well as his true incorporation of emotions and soul into his art have come to be seen as his distinguishing characteristics. He draws inspiration from everyday experiences and writes with the joy he experiences from listening to rich, poetic music with amazing sounds and beats.

Not resting on his oars, the Yoruba-born prodigy, who also works as a data analyst, has a long list of popular songs under his credit, including 2021’s EP “All or Nothing” and 2022’s Linger. The US-based Nigerian singer-songwriter was born for the spotlight, and his diverse career is already shaping up to be legendary.
