Sarz Shares Fela’s Inspiration Behind Jaiye Jaiye

Sarz Shares Fela’s Inspiration Behind Jaiye: Nigerian creative, award winning music producer, Sarz shares the inspiration behind creating Jaiye Jaiye for Wizkid.

Osabuohien Osaretin (born March 17, 1989), better known by his stage name Sarz, is a record producer and musician.

Born in Benin City, Edo State, he is popularly known for the tag “Sarz On The Beat” and “Really?” at the beginning or end of all his music productions.

This has become his signature tune and has engraved itself in the subconscious of many Nigerians and listeners from around the world.

To be peculiar in any industry you find yourself in, especially in the music industry where sounds mean a whole lot, getting a signature tune to remind fans of your artistry or who you are is never underrated.

Sarz produced the track back in 2013 which featured Femi Kuti and is regarded as one of Wizkid’s biggest hits ever.

A curious fan asked the producer sometime recent about what inspired the “Jaiye Jaiye” beat and Sarz took to Twitter to narrate how it happened.

According to him, he had a dream where he was With Fela who schooled him on the spirituality of music. As the conversation progressed, someone started knocking on his door and it turned out to be Wizkid.

He said the “Joro” singer told him to add the door knocking sound to the beat he was working on and send it to him. He woke up and the rest is history.

He wrote:

“I had a dream I was with Fela and he was schooling me about the spirituality of music. Deep in our conversation, someone started knocking gben gben gben I was like “who is that?” The person knocked again gbim gbim gbim.
I opened the door and it was Wizkid. He said when you wake up add this gben gben and gbim gbim to a beat and send it to me. I woke up and the rest was history.”

It might sound really cheesy but sometimes the inspirations to the top notch music beats you hear come from really weird and mundane situations.
