Vreezy Ville aka Neville Sone is Versatile USA based Cameroonian Afro-Beats artist/rapper and entertainer currently signed to self-owned record label, Sankpata Music Group (SMG).
Vreezy Ville started his music career back in 2010 when he moved to the USA. He was part of now defunct USA based Cameroonian music group, “Cyclops” formed in 2010 made up of himself, Kayzeey and Gabby. Together, they released critically acclaimed song “Shake it” in January of 2012.
Despite his commitment with the group, Vreezy joined USA based Cameroonian Entertainment group called Legacy House Inc. and released the song “Brighten ur night” feat Frank Kesi on the 14th of January 2013. However, things didn’t work out with him in that team as he announced his breakup with them on April 4th 2013. The breakup wasn’t a good one as the song “Brighten ur night” released under the label was later deleted from YouTube.
Still in April of 2013, Vreezy released his first solo single/video titled “Cameroon Azonto” which currently has 869 views on YouTube (Audio dropped September 5th 2012). “Cameroon Azonto” was off the album “C.Y.C.L.O.P” which he promised will drop around 2013/2014 but we don’t have any records of that till date.
Again alongside Frank Kesi, Vreezy released the classic video of the previously deleted song “Brighten Ur Night” in July 2013. Both videos still had the signature of Legacy that he had supposedly broken up with.
Vreezy then signed a mega contract with Franco Records in January 2014 which is more like the major highlight of his career. Vreezy described his signing with the label as a great experience and he was anxious to work with them.
Barely 1 month after signing with the label, Vreezy released 3 singles including “Olopyto“, “Too blessed” and “Pon de Floor”. Vreezy Ville was confident that his style will erode and bring a new vibe to African pop industry.

In May 2015, Vreezy Ville released the video of “Jakiri”, a project that he invited fast rising artist at the time, Arrey, video directed by Dr. Nkeng Stephens. “Jakiri” was a unique love tail and received much love from fans, currently at 16k views on YouTube.
Vreezy Ville’s highlight moment when signed to Franco records was his collaboration with Mr. Leo, one of the hottest Cameroonian Afropop artists at the moment. They both came together in the piece “All I Want” produced by Salatiel in March 2016. Currently at +100k views on YouTube, “All I want” directed by Dr. Nkeng Stephens was about letting a woman know she is much appreciated and to express their true love for a woman.
