Nigerian music sensation, Habeeb Opeyemi Kazeem popularly known as CaZe, has said that despite his current status as a successful artiste, he was never born into a rich family.
Speaking with reporters in Lagos, CaZe also gives insight into his background and his record label, “first of all, let me clarify, because I know a lot of people will say, he is from a rich home, he is this or that, forget all these flashy things you are seeing now. Although my parents are not poor, but I was born into a middle-class family, I wasn’t born with a silver spoon”. I was born and raised in Lagos. I run FMINC Entertainment Company, which is also based in Lagos”.
On his inspiration and kind of music, the multi-talented artiste said “I am very versatile but my sounds can be described as Afro Mix. I draw my inspirations from the sound and energy around me. I am the new phase of Nigerian music. I have got everything it takes to make my music a global entity” he boasted.
CaZe who was born in the 80s, currently has two new singles, “Sonto” and “Lowo Freetyle”, which are fast becoming a national anthem in Nigeria. He has worked with big Nigerian stars, which include; Olamide, Dj maphorisa, Orezi, Skibbi, mystro. Sarz, Phellz and many more.

He had once performed at one of the biggest clubs in Malaysia, 1145. After an amazing reception, CaZe moved on to dominate the club scene in Asia, having numerous One Man Shows across the popular clubs.
