DJ Zeeez was born to the family of Mr. and Mrs. Abdulganiy on the 26th of April. He was birthed in the mid-90s and was given the name, Abdulazeez Opeyemi by his parents.
He was born in the Northern part of the country, in the city of Minna precisely. However, he is an indigene of Osun State, southwest Nigeria. Thus, he is a Yoruba man. He hailed from a Muslim household and was raised in the Islamic faith.
Growing up, his parents ensured he attended Qu’ranic classes while he also pursued a western education. They also made sure that he was familiar with his Yoruba roots, teaching him the language and other cultural traits of his tribe.
Although raised in Niger state, he was opportune to come in contact with songs from the Nigerian pop music scene by listening to the radio or watching the television, or listening to music records from a cassette player. His interest in music was piqued in this period, as he took a liking to artists such as D’banj, Don Jazzy, 2Baba, P-square, Olu Maintain, who were the leading mainstream artists at the time.
Being raised in a middle-class family meant that DJ Zeeez and his siblings had access to quality education.
He attended an elite Creché school for his pre-elementary school education as a toddler.
He studied at top private schools in Minna for his primary and secondary school education.
He attended a public school for his university education and is currently studying at the Federal University Of Technology, Minna (FUTMINNA).
Despite having the longing to pursue music as a career since he was a teenager, it took DJ Zeeez a couple of years before he finally followed his dream. His professional music career kicked off officially in 2016. At that time, DJ Zeeez took his time to become more acquainted with other artists in his locality while he composed his own songs. He was still an undergraduate during this period.
He was not only satisfied with composing songs but also went further to record them. Many of the singles he recorded during this period didn’t do great numbers commercially; however, they helped position him in the student community as one of its leading artists. This is because the songs were popular among students of FUTMINNA and resulted in DJ Zeeez being invited to perform at several shows and concerts held on campus.
DJ Zeeez‘s career took a positive turn in January 2019 after dropping the single, Gang, featuring rapper K-dream. The song was a big success, as it received positive reviews from music critics, massive airplay on radio stations across the country, and thousands of streams from fans.
The heat of Gang‘s success hadn’t died when DJ Zeeez followed it up with another banger titled Dey Alright. This single, which featured vocals from Ijaya and Otega Billz, was released in May 2019.
Later that month, he teamed up with Kdream for another music collabo. But this time around, he added Base One to the team. Together, the trio recorded and released the hit single, Chika. Chika was so successful that it emerged as No. 1 on Boomplay’s New Song Of The Week.
To wrap things up in 2019 and give his already large number of fans a party jam to groove with during the festive season, DJ Zeeez dropped the single Finito. The song saw guest appearances from Superboy Cheque, Spotless, and K-dream.
During the early days of the pandemic, while the world was on a lockdown and people were forced to stay indoors, Dj Zeeez decided to give his fans a melodious song to vibe to. This led to the creation of Sho Ti Broke, featuring Jaido P.
Almost a year after working with Jaido P, he teamed up with the rapper again to record another mind-blowing single, Zaddy. They brought in Zanku records rapper Papisnoop on board this time around. The trio released the single on the 15th Of January 2021.
