This highly anticipated edition of Simple Magazine features fast-rising pop music darling, Toby Grey and
hardworking pixels peddler, HG2. For the average Nigerian audience, Toby Grey’s breakout moment was
her brash response to recent pop success, Kiss Daniel’s massive number, “Woju”. Aptly titled “Gboju”,
Grey lands a subtle blow to Daniel’s bravado on the Record, consequently landing herself a major hit as
well. While “Gboju” the response might not eventually be as big a record as Daniel’s original, Toby Grey
had gone ahead and broken wider grounds with hot songs like “Gbona” and “Lale Yi”. HG2 on the other
hand rose to the industry hot-cake status with a solid track record of successful projects in graphics
design and videos. Despite the diverse, but often-times creatively related nature of Toby and HG’s roles
in Nigerian entertainment, they both represent one trend we respect in the Nigerian youth: resilience.
From Toby Grey’s stress-filled, hope-inspiring and on-going tales of upcoming days, to HG2’s timeline of
designing and shooting his way to fame and success (flashback to those infamous BBM display
pictures!), we stay up for celebrating the true fighting spirit, can-do nature and the journey of the
Nigerian youth to the legendary light at the end of our individual and collective tunnels.
