Fast-rising Nigerian singer Guchi is poised to take the world by storm again with the release of her new single. Following the release of her smash hit debut single ‘Jennifer’ in 2021, Guchi captivated the hearts of millions of fans around the world as she amassed a massive following on TikTok. She has since released more songs to the resounding applause of her ever-growing fan base.
Speaking at an exclusive media event held at the Maison Fahrenheit Hotel in Lagos, Nigeria, on Thursday, August 10, 2023, Guchi discussed how TikTok helped her level the playing field as an independent artist on the road to global stardom and how content creators can further use the platform to break free from the norm and achieve extraordinary things. Guchi said, “I’m humbled and grateful for the love and support I’ve received on TikTok. The platform has allowed me to connect with fans from all over the world, and their creativity never ceases to amaze me. TikTok has truly amplified my music and provided me with a unique way to engage with my audience,”
Speaking of Guchi’s meteoric rise to global stardom, Munya Vomo, Content Partnerships Lead, Music at TikTok Sub-Saharan Africa, said, “We’re thrilled to see artists like Guchi flourish on TikTok. On Notice Me, as with each of her releases, multitudes of TikTok users, once again, connected with her music by interpreting it through their own content on the platform. “Through her music, talent, and engaging content, she embodies the creative spirit of TikTok and continues to leave an indelible mark on the platform’s vibrant community,” he added.
Furthermore, Guchi shed more light on how artists can use TikTok to break boundaries and share the uniqueness of Afrobeats with the world, using her viral single ‘Notice Me’ as a case study. She said that with TikTok, she can show her passion, creativity, and originality to the world, beyond Nigeria, without losing the essence of her Afrobeats roots.
TikTok’s magic lies in its democratising power; it’s a stage where anyone with talent, passion, and creativity can shine, and Guchi’s journey underscores this. With TikTok, she didn’t need a traditional record label to amplify her voice; her talent did the talking. “Musicians reside at the heart of TikTok’s vibrant community, and our commitment lies in empowering both established and emerging artists to realise their full potential. Our platform offers them a dynamic space to experiment, innovate, and connect with fans like never before,” Munya Vomo concluded.
