Sarz & Wurld- Trobul
Sarz & Wurld- Ego (Nobody wins)
Sarz ft DJ Tunez & Flash- Get up
10. Reminisce- Kako be chicken (2011)
For a 2000s kid, this song was one of those songs the lyrics were fun to sing along to, especially the chrous, “kako be chicken” ( even though i am yet to understand what he was talking about). But you would agree with me that the song from its Beat to the lyrics, everything about the song was fun listening to. Sarz made use of drums in the making of the beat
9. Jahbless ft Iceprince, Reminisce, Eldee, Durella, Ruggedman, – Jor(Remix) (2010)
I remember vividly when this song came out, everyone in my area would rap along to the song, even those whose voice should be banned would be feeling like a rapper. From the crazy beat to the hilarious lyrics, Jahbless, Iceprince, Reminisce, Eldee, Durella, Ruggedman and Sarz made our 2010 a fun year to remember.
8. Sarz ft Wizkid- Samba(2012)
After producing songs for artists, Sarz decided to produce Beat of life(Samba) and we thank God we he did. Samba did well when it was released as it was during that period the ‘Azonto’ dance was popular. Wizkid‘s popularity and his lyrics also contributed to its success, a fact Sarz himself acknowledged. Even till now, you can’t hear Samba and not want to dance.
7. Wizkid ft Femi Kuti- Jaiye jaiye (2013)
In this song, Sarz proved that no matter the genre of song you want him to produce, he will murder it. Sarz took Fela‘s slow afrobeat style and turned it into a danceable beat. Wizkid was joined by Femi Kuti who played the saxophone in the song. The song has more than 11million views on youtube.
6. Goldie- Dont touch my body (2010)
Goldie (may her soul rest in peace) was considered the lady Gaga of Nigeria because of her eccentric way of life, she was an amazing singer who has voice and the class to deliver the song. So its no suprise she was able to deliver on the Sarz produced track.
5. Wizkid ft Drake- Come closer (2017)
Wizkid feature American Rapper, Drake in Come closer. The song is smooth and danceable at the same time and of course, Sarz proved he is nobody mate when it comes to producing Songs.
4. Niniola- Maradona (2017)
Though Maradona wasn’t the first song Sarz had produced for Niniola, Maradona was the song that launched Niniola‘s career. The song was so good that International DJ, DJ Snake did a remix of the song which he called ‘Maradona Riddim’.
3. Niniola- Sicker (2017)
When i heard this song, i knew anybody apart from Sarz producing songs for Niniola would affect her career. Sicker was released after the massive success of Maradona in the market, even though it didn’t surpass the success of its predecessor, it was a hit in its own right.
2. Skepta ft Wizkid- Energy(Stay faraway) (2018)
While Energy might not really be called a danceable song, you can’t still help but move whenever the song comes on. Sarz proved he is capable of producing anything and you just can’t help but love it.
1 Sarz & Wurld- Mad (2019)
I have a feeling that Sarz picks the Artist he works with carefully, because how do you explain the magic he and Wurld performed in “I love girls with Trobul”, the EP they released together. Mad is one of the best songs from the EP, the song even got recognition from Cardi B and her husband, Offset.
