Apple Music Announces Pawzz As Up Next Artist For Nigeria


Afrofusion singer-songwriter, Pawzz, real name, David Tokuma Dekor, has been announced as the latest featured artist for Apple Music’s Up Next artist development program in Nigeria.

Born and raised in Port-Harcourt, Nigeria, Pawzz has been working diligently for several months alongside distribution and label services company, Freeme Music, in order to fully realise his artist  potential.

Now, with a clear focus on leveraging his individuality, Pawzz is determined to make a positive impact on the youth through his music, by teaching them to embrace their authentic selves.

“It is a real honour for me, a young kid from Nigeria’s middle-belt, to be selected as Apple Music’s Up Next artist. I cannot express how grateful I am to Apple Music for their love and support for my music. It just brings so much validation to my journey, the years of sacrifice and striving to achieve my dreams. I couldn’t be happier or more ecstatic about this,” he tells Apple Music.

As the newest Up Next act to be spotlighted in Nigeria, Pawzz will be featured across Apple Music’s Nigeria’s Up Next playlist. The curated playlist features a dynamic class of new and emerging artists, thoughtfully hand-picked by Apple Music editors from around the world.

Meanwhile, Pawzz  joins Novemba, Ogranya, Majeeed, Khaid, Ninety, Young Jonn, T.I Blaze, Browny Pondis, Ajebo Hustlers, Jaido P, Wavy The Creator and SGaWD as Apple Music’s growing stable of Up Next Artists from Nigeria.
