“I started music professionally at the age of 9 in 2018. My dad wrote some freestyle for me which I memorized. There was a day he went online and he noticed that the rapper, Reminisce was giving upcoming artistes opportunities to freestyle on his new beat titled “Ajigijaga”.
"He downloaded the beat and woke me up around 3am to notify me about the competition. He asked if I could do my version, I said I would love to but not at the moment because I needed to sleep, but we agreed that once I was back from school we would do it.
"To cut the story short, I did it and he uploaded it on my page on Instagram (@Harmeen_official) and tag reminisce and others based on the instructions to follow.
“Surprisingly, around 7pm after we uploaded around 4pm, someone called my dad that Reminisce had reposted my freestyle and that it’s trending. My dad log-in immediately and he received message that I was one of the winners and my dad should bring me to Ikeja to claim the prize of 100 thousand naira. My dad used some of the money to buy me some school materials and we used the remaining money to go to studio to record my first single titled “Omo Naija”.
"Since then I have been moving from place to place to perform, state to state to perform alongside other star artistes and celebrities.
" Presently, I have recorded 11 tracks with 3 videos but my latest song trending right now is titled “Rapability”. The video was shot by my dad because he’s a cinematographer,” Harmeen recounted how the journey began.
