Okaigbuan Shina aka Shinzu, aka Ogbeni_Shinzu is a Songwriter, Recording and Performing artiste born in Lagos but raised in Benin.
Influenced by his peers in secondary school and neighbors who shared a common love for music, Shinzu soon found himself scribbling his own lines and engaging in freestyles.

Despite it being a surprise and independent release it’s since gone on to be Shinzu’s most successful project garnering over Seventeen Thousand streams since it’s release.
Shinzu identifies as Genreless, while this doesn’t mean he’s not aware of his strengths musically or where majority of his audience flock from, he’s found himself a jack of many trades and an admirer of several genre always willing to experiment and create new sounds not being bound to a particular style or genre and that enforces his idea of identifying as Genreless.
His music leanings though can be classified either as Pop, HipHop or variations of the afrobeats genre.
