Popularly known as “Butter Boy”, Rilwan Bawa-Bwari (born July 24 1989) stage name Rilwan has gradually grown into one of the fast rising stars in the country.
Though influence by Rock Music back in Kings College, the upcoming Nigerian rapper seeks to bring something new to the music industry, although his sound bends towards the rap spectrum. Fascinated by the art of Rap, Rilwan started experimenting with words and this led him to be part of a brotherhood of musician called Av’lanche Music in 2007. This did not last long as one of the members parted ways and Rilwan chose to remain in the undeground scene until he got spotted by PLAY records, an Abuja based Record Label and came up with his 1st single tagged “EVERYNIGHT” which he co-produced with sazzy, who is also on the Chorus of the song. The song is based on the euphoric experiences faced by every young man and woman in a cold world. As a follow up Rilwan teamed up with label mate BUSH and long time friend LYNXXX to bring to the people a remix for “EVERYNIGHT” which had heavy rotation on radio stations and clubs in Lagos and Abuja.
