Viral Star Hyzah Shares New Song “Dan Mi (Pass Me The Lighter)”
After becoming a viral sensation with his Drake-approved freestyle video, which was filmed on the streets of Lagos, 19-year-old breaking talent Hyzah is now ready to unleash his first official single. Following that unprecedented turn of events, Hyzah’s debut “Dan Mi (Pass The Lighter)” is the start of something brilliant and pioneering, and kickstarts his new deal with Warner Records.
Despite appearing to be an overnight sensation, the young Nigerian has been making music since his early schooldays. It was not easy for the aspiring artist. “We didn’t have actual instruments to make music, but we’d use our hands to make beats,” he recalls.
Hyzah’s life took a completely different path when an unknown stranger filmed his impressive rhythmic flow and incredibly rich melodies. They uploaded the freestyle to Twitter, which sparked his viral moment. Additional videos of him began to circulate around social media, and his street-side performances quickly became iconic.
