Singer and Producer, Maleek Berry has 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.
