Singer and producer, Maleek Berry is winning right now.
The producer continues his winning run since delving fully into becoming a recording and performing artist. After dropping a solid EP last year and touring different cities across the globe, Maleek Berry is winning online with his numbers.
‘Kontrol’ and its music video are killing it right now. On streaming platform Spotify, the record has amassed over 10 million streams, (which is quite a lot for an African artist). And on Youtube the video has crossed the coveted 20 million views.
Talk about the money and the goodness of a hit record!

‘Kontrol’ was released in April 2016. It was self-produced, and distributed across the internet alone. But just like wildfire, it quickly spread as the months sped, penetrated radio, and became one of the most groovy songs of the summer.
Due to its success, it formed the basis for the singer to release an EP titled “Last Daze Of Summer” in September, which was a hit. Songs off the project including ‘Eko Miami’, ‘Flexing’, and ‘Let me know’ have accumulated numerous streams.
On why he chose to become an artist, Maleek said he felt it was time to create a new challenge. “ I wanted to try something new and challenge myself and be one of the people that takes Nigerian music to the world,” He said.
