After enjoying a successful streak in the Nigerian music industry, multi-talented hit record producer, Daniel Williams, professionally known as Yung Willis, is now gearing up to wear many hats as he launches his own label, Royal Music Records, as well as released his first single and album.

With the progress recorded by other producers such as Pheelz, Young Jonn and Maleek Berry, Killatunes, Sess, among others, Yung Willis joins the league of music producers who enjoy successful careers as producers and singers.

Over the past few years, Yung Willis has worked with some of Nigeria’s biggest artists including Falz, Timaya, Wizkid, Kizz Daniel, Davido, Niniola, Waje, BNXN, Zlatan, Yemi Alade, Patoranking & Ice Prince, producing a record at success after breaking a record.

The music producer was actually an artist before moving into production to further develop his craft from within and now feels ready to express his artistry and story.

Renowned for his slogan, “Wi Wi Wi Willis Give Dem”, Yung Willis has always prioritized enhancement, which is one of the inspirations for his slogan.

Having gained enough experience working with various artists while creating unique sounds, the Abuja native now feels ready to ‘give back’ this base of experience through his new record label, Royals Music Records.

Sharing his delight with Guardian Music, he said, “Today marks the start of something groundbreaking for the future of talent discovery, artists, music producers, sound engineers, songwriters and creatives or entertainment professionals in general.

“One person who has always inspired me is Don Jazzy, with the way he has shown through Mavin that Nigerians can structure this music on a global level. Kanye West has also always been a big inspiration to me, both musically and entrepreneurially.

He continues, “I’m still that young boy from Abuja, still learning and trying to navigate the entertainment industry, but a firm believer in structure and passionate about doing it right. I think it’s time for me to start small. With the launch of Royals Music, I can take another step in the evolution of my art and my brand and, by the grace of God, I can still give back to the creative society that has helped me thrive over the last years.

The launch comes just ahead of the release of his aptly titled debut single Givin Dem which is the lead single from his upcoming album LOTP (Life of The Party). For this album, Yung Willis has teamed up with the international label powered by Mr Eazi, emPawa Africa.
