Prior to this moment, Maleek Berry had been identified as a producer associated with Wizkid’s Star Boy imprint.
His production prowess on Wizkid’s 2013 hit Back to the Matter earned him the attention of many who recognized him solely as a producer.
In 2016, Mr Berry made a bold decision by announcing himself a singer – an attempt that many has failed at. With the release of his Last Daze of Summer EP, he replicated his greatness and cleared our doubts.
Since releasing the 6 track tape, his efforts has earned him opportunities to headline at JAY Z’s Made in America concert, deliver a powerful speech on the prestigious TEDx platform and most recently landed a MOBO awards nomination.
The MOBO awards stands for “Music of Black Origin” and was established in 1996. The award show is held annually in the United Kingdom to recognize artists of any ethnicity or nationality performing black music.
