Afrobeats showman shapes up for stardom
- Maleek’s debut as a solo artist saw him enlisting the talents of UK rap artist Sneakbo on the popular ‘For My People’ (2015) which paved the way for last year’s ‘Last Daze of Summer’ EP which has amassed a staggering 70 million plus combined streams and thrust him firmly into the international spotlight.
- Also collaborating with the likes of Wale, Wizkid, Davido, Runtown and Iyanya, he has most recently collaborated with Jidenna – appearing on the track ‘Bambi’ alongside Migos’ Quavo, taken from Jidenna’s brand-new ‘Boomerang’ EP – and Burna Boy.
- The global underground hit ‘Kontrol’ which has amassed well over 50 million streams in just over a year – and his recent critically celebrated tracks ‘Been Calling’ and ‘Pon My Mind’ which lead to him receiving two MOBO Award nominations for Best Male and Best African Act, the British-born Nigerian artist and producer Maleek Berry has returned with the release of his highly anticipated new EP ‘First Daze of Winter’.
