Ebony Naomi Oshunrinde (born December 28, 1996), professionally known as WondaGurl, is a Canadian record producer. WondaGurl has worked with several prominent artists in the music industry, including Lil Uzi Vert, Big Sean, Travis Scott, Jay Z, Drake, SZA, Young Thug, and Kanye West, among others.

Early life and career[edit]

Ebony Naomi Oshunrinde was born on December 28, 1996[2] in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, to Jozie Oshunrinde.[1][3] WondaGurl started producing on her keyboard with drum pads at age 9. WondaGurl entered the 2011 and 2012 Battle of The Beat Makers competition in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, which she entered at age 15 and won first place, earning a trophy and a Roland GAIA Synthesizer.[4]

WondaGurl became a protege of Boi-1da and often works with Travis Scott. WondaGurl sent a beat to Drake via Instagram, which landed two placements, "Used To" and "Company", featuring and co-produced by Travis Scott, on Drake's mixtape If You're Reading This It's Too Late. WondaGurl also sent a beat to Travis Scott, who passed it on to Jay Z, which became the song "Crown". WondaGurl has worked with other major artists and producers since then. WondaGurl also produced the Top 40 hit single "Antidote" by Travis Scott, which was co-produced by Eestbound. WondaGurl would go on to sign Eestbound to her label imprint, becoming her first artist.[5]
