Now Hip Hop Head is bringing you an artiste by the name Revy, he is one you need to pay attention to. His name is Jeremy Sule. He is a Hausa-Igbo hybrid from Kaduna, born on the 20th of June in 1993.
He is based in Abuja, the federal capital of Nigeria and his preferred genres of music include Afro version of pop and high life.
How did you come about your stage name?
My stage name Revy was gotten from the word revelation. It all started before I was born, my dad had a friend who died the month to my birth. When my mum was about to give birth to me, my dad concluded that my mum would have a boy. And he planned for me to be called Jeremiah, after his late friend.
And so it happened, when I heard the story I realized my coming into the world was a revelation. So I named myself revelation. But on seeing that the name was long, I cut it to Revy.
Revy, what inspired you to venture into music
My good voice in singing when I was a child in church inspired me to start writing songs. And as I grew up I wanted to use my talent even more.
Tell us about your Childhood and family background
Growing up was fun, I am from a family of four. I am the third child of my family and we are just okay financially. Growing up was fun and at the same time terrible because of certain challenges.
So how do you combine music and academics
I read when I am supposed to and also write music during the weekends or when I am alone. I sneak out for parties and try to promote my songs too, its not easy (chuckles)
What has been your greatest challenge as a Nigerian artiste
I will say money to host shows and promote my songs. The competition in the industry has been a challenge too.

Simi, Adekunle Gold , Flavour and Yemi Alade because these are artiste that are totally unique and are their style is in line with what I do.
Who is your role model and why do you respect him
Adekunle gold does it for me. Its because I like his voice and the genre of songs. I like his dress sense too because his trying to promote a brilliant Nigeria culture.
