How I Inspired P-Square, Other Nigerian Artiste – Solidstar



Nigerian singer, Joshua Iniyezo, popularly known as Solidstar, claims that he played a significant role in inspiring legendary music stars, P-Square and other prominent names in the Nigerian music industry.

The ‘Skibo’ hitmaker claims that his hit song ‘One In A Million‘ kick-started the beginning of a new tone in Nigerian music.

He said when he became, many thought he was Ghanaian because of his unique musical style.

While appearing as a guest in a recent episode of The Honest Bunch podcast, Solidstar stated that the remix of the song with 2baba inspired P-Square’s hit song ‘Possibility’ which featured the African Queen hitmaker.

In his words:

“It was ‘One In A Million’ that paved the way for me in the music industry. I won the Best New Artist at the Nigerian Music Video Awards with the song. Many even thought I was Ghanaian, they didn’t know I’m Nigerian because my style then was different.

“It was my song [‘One In A Million’] that changed the sound of the Nigerian music industry. It was also the inspiration behind P-Square’s ‘Possibility’ featuring 2Baba.

“The song changed the Nigerian music industry. It came with its unique style. I slowed the tempo down and everyone started copying that pattern.”
