Slimdizzybozz: Unsung In Nigeria, Making Waves In Italy 

“Providence smiled at him when some band members in Italy heard his voice for the first time and then told him how great his voice sounded and requested him to join their band. He accepted.”

Making melody is his signature. Right from the cradle, like a beautifully scented flower budding, Inkau Sunday Diffin’s singing endowment was spotted quite early by his teacher in primary school.

“It all started back in primary school when my teacher of blessed memory, Mr. Simon, found out I had a unique voice,” Inkau recalled. “There was this song we usually sing together at the assembly ground before heading to our various classrooms, so while singing, my voice stood out, and Late Mr. Simon said, ‘I heard a voice from this angle, and I wanna see that person.’ I was scared and thought I may have done something terrible. With the fear that had enveloped me, I refused to come out until further persuasion with assurances that I wasn’t in the wrong. He categorically told me right there, ‘your voice is so great, and the world will know you through your voice.'” Inkau said.  People quickly noticed his sonorous voice wherever he went, including the Church he worshipped, the Assemblies of God Church, Abakpa Ogboja, Ogoja, Cross River State.

It was while in the University that Diffin found his voice. He performed in school gigs and some shows in Calabar town. He even took a shot at the MTN Project Fame auditioning in 2015 but didn’t make the final list. The opportunities he lost in Nigeria, he gained in Italy.
