The Houston, Texas born Multihyphenate artist, Mezuo, has joined the list of young composers with his latest effort in the latest Netflix release “Clash”, produced and directed by Canadian-Nigerian multiple award-winning filmmaker Pascal Atuma. The film was globally released on July 7th, marking Mezuo’s composition debut for Netflix following the critical acclaim of his debut music video release for “30”. The film score is said to have “pulled from both American and Nigerian influences to create a multicultural feel”, the Los Angeles based artist explained. When asked about the importance of the Netflix deal for his career trajectory, Mezuo said that he believes “the Netflix credit contributes heavily to solidifying my reputation across music and film.” He continued by stating that “the opportunity leaves the door open for more advanced roles within the theatrical space because of the success of this initial release.”
Mezuo attributed his recent success to his foundational efforts and longevity within the craft. He traced his musical origins back to a summer program at Columbia University in New York City. There, he stated that he “rapped in a cypher that motivated me to write my own raps and produce records shortly after returning home.” Mezuo noted that he stayed on top of his academics as he found his footing within the entertainment industry. The graduate of the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin with a minor in screenwriting and directing added that he “took college as a period of development with low stakes where I ultimately decided to pursue a career in music.” When asked about what led to his early aspirations in film, the Los Angeles based artist said that he “started writing, directing, and acting in projects around his 2nd year of college, both in and out of the classroom” The young artist placed importance on differentiating himself early and in the process created more pathways into the entertainment business. When asked about future projects to expect, the Houston, Texas raised artist said “there is a lot more work to follow and folks should expect a comprehensive project on the music front in the extremely near term.”
