While in London, Faris started making music, but they were not popping. He had started rapping while attending University in Los Angeles. At the time, despite born in Houston, Texas, he felt more Nigerian than American. Thus, one of his first songs was titled, ‘Oyibo Rebel.’
At the time, his stage name was Farastafarian. It’s a portmanteau of his name, ‘Faris’ and ‘Rastafarian.’ He got the name from going to ‘enjoying his life at Tarkwa Bay.
While Faris was in London, a Nigerian friend told him that, “Guy, your Jesus is in Nigeria – go back home (laughs). Just go back, my friend (laughs)…”
In 2012, Faris came back to Nigeria from London a while. After being inspired by D’Banj, Wande Coal and Timaya, Farastafarian came to released a single called, ‘One Day.’ It was performed in pidgin and it gained some traction, but not at a level the artiste or his team craved.
However, the team took solace in how Farastafarian shot his video in Ebute-Metta. At the time, Farastafarian also worked with Cobhams Asuquo who produced five songs for the rapper then.
Name Change From Faris To Oyibo Rebel
After that stint, Faris decided to do something with shock value that could capture the hearts. Thus, he became Oyibo Rebel.
‘Oyibo’ is a Nigerian descriptive for lightskinned people. Sometimes, it is derogatory, but to Faris, he chose the name having lived in Nigeria and become Nigerian. To him, merging ‘Oyibo’ with ‘Rebel’ is his way of taking the derogative connotation out of the word, ‘Oyibo.’
To Faris, he chose name because he was trying to, “Debunk all the negative connotation associated with ‘Oyibo’ while putting a positive spin on it. We’re rebelling against those common stereotypes and actually showing that there are white people out here who are fully indulged and deep into the culture.”
