Joey Plus was one of the producers who mentored the band in the Nigerian Breweries sponsored Talent Hunt Show, Star Quest, a parade of tested producers including Samklef [Producer for Wizkid’s Don’t Dull] and Phat E [J’odie’s Kuchi Kuchi Baby]. Joey Plus also mentored B.E.A.T, the winning band at this year’s Star Quest talent.
Before Star Quest, Joey Plus mentored under Willie Oputa – a Producer/DJ who worked with Tuface Idibia and also engineered tracks for the likes of Blackfaze and Krazy Kulture. The Producer/singer revamped his recording career with the #Joeytunesday where he gives away music every tuesday via his Twitter account: @JoeyPlus. However, he has put on hold recording of new tracks for #JoeyTunesDay and is now giving out download links for his new single, ‘E no Mata’.
He grew up playing the piano in church and listening to the music of Sir Victor Uwaifo and a host of others. Listen to ‘E No Mata’ below.
