Biography

Bigz is one of the UK’s most recognisable and charismatic talent’s both signed and unsigned. Born of Nigerian heritage and raised in the UK, music was his 3rd memorable love as a child after God, family (and food of course).
“Mum was always playing songs by Fela Kuti (BABA 70), Shina Peters, Barrister, Wasiu Ayinde Marshal and the king of afro juju King Sunny Ade. It’s what we grew up on in my house”.

Bigz has built a reputation as one of the most entertaining and talented artists the UK has to offer, through his mix of witty lyrics, larger than life personality and street credibility. Bigz first entered the music industry with his business partners Tayo ‘ESQ’ Badru and Olu ‘Father’ Olabagju, setting up their record label/production company Alliance Records. They then released Bigz debut singles ‘Cor Blimey’ and ‘This Is How We Do’ and also co-released Sway’s Mercury Music Award nominated album, ‘This Is My Demo’. In 2006 they intended to release Bigz debut album but due to the tragic loss of his older brother Akeem ‘Banger’ Oriola and both business partners mentioned above in the mere space of 12 months, Bigz took an extended hiatus from the industry.
‘I needed time to deal with it, with myself and with my family, now by the grace of God your boy is back’.
