1SRAEL

Bio

Born in Lagos, Nigeria, and raised in PG County, Maryland, Israel Fowobaje (professionally known as 1SRAEL), has always devoted himself to becoming great. Growing up in a house full of musicians, he knew that music was the route he wanted to go early on. Music was the first avenue he pursued where he was able to witness the fruits of his labor. As someone who defines himself as a multi-genre producer, 1SRAEL still works to create a signature sound in everything he produces.

Before 1SRAEL got into production, he still was in the music lane but was a fashion and music photographer – in addition to having a full scale marketing and branding company, he was always business-savvy at heart. With influences such as Fela Kuti, Quincy Jones, WondaGurl, and so many more, it’s easy to see where he pulls his greatness and inspiration from.

With production on major tracks such as the Grammy Award-winning ‘WAIT FOR U’ by Future (he is the guitar player on the song), and working with the likes of Tems, Dee Gatti, Lucky Daye, Adekunle Gold, and many others, 1SRAEL is headed to the top and prides himself on being an integral part of major moments with artists whose music he loves. 

The producer has a list of accolades under his belt, including winning a BET Award for Best Collaboration, and an AMA award for Best Hip Hop Song for his work on Future’s ‘WAIT FOR U’.

Now based in Los Angeles, 1SRAEL is striding into the future standing comfortably alongside his peers, and is gaining the experience and knowledge to change the game.
