Who is Maleek Berry?

Maleek Shoyebi is a British-Nigerian record producer and recording artist better known by his stage name, Maleek Berry. He was born on 11th August 1987. As an artist, he started back in 2007. Maleek Berry, who first gained publicity in 2012, was nominated for a 2014 Nigeria Entertainment Awards "Music Producer of the Year" award.Maleek has been credited for some of the biggest songs in the African music scene.

Although he had always enjoyed and practised music, he stepped up his game by forming a rap group with two close friends in his local church. The trio started writing, producing and performing their own songs at the ages of 14 and 15 with the help of a small pre-production setup called Fruity Loops, but they broke up at 16.

However that did not stop his desire for music, he started teaching himself how to write and produce music. According to a past interview he did, Maleek said he wrote hooks and made various productions which people would easily fall in love with. This became his motivation in music making. Despite getting to music at a young age and being backed by his whole family, Maleek chose to finish his undergraduate school before fully venturing into music.

The biggest jump of his music career was when he became the Executive producer for Nigerian Singer Wande Coal's sophomore album dubbed 'Wanted'. The album became his breakthrough as he produced nine of the songs but also featured in one song 'Weekend' which got massive airplay with ladies being the favourites.

Maleek Berry has further collaborated with well-known musicians like Wizkid, Raye, Snakehips, Davido, Rudimental, and Goldlink, to name a few. Maleek consistently produces new and distinctive sounds that are largely influenced by his motherland Nigeria. Berry is a producer that freely jumps to the various African sound including Afro-pop, Afrbeats, hip-hop, R&B and Pop.

The biggest songs for the double MOBO nominee to date include Kontrol, Been Calling, and Sit Back Down. Berry gives us a return to his distinctive and timeless sound.

Berry's career underwent a significant change in October 2015 when he released For My People, a song featuring UK rapper Sneakbo, as his first official solo release as an artist. This was after developing a strong production catalog and establishing himself in the business.

An official video was released in January 2016 to favorable reviews, and it was played on stations in Nigeria as well as MTV Base UK and MTV Base Africa. Within four weeks of its debut, the song's music video received 100,000 online views, providing the artist a significant internet presence.

He launched the self-produced mega hit Control in April of the same year, and it was not only well received but also went viral online, receiving millions of streams on various platforms. On the day of his birthday in August, the official video was uploaded, and it quickly surpassed 100,000 views.

Later on in the year, he published The Last Days of Summer, an extended play (EP) that made it evident that he was a performing artist. Control and Eko Maima, two of his standout singles, are included on the EP.

He later dropped his debut album dubbed “Isolation Room’.
