Drizilik - Sierra Leone

RnB

Benjamin Menelik George, better known by his stage name Drizilik, originates from Freetown, Sierra Leone.

He started music at the age of nineteen, having been influenced by his mentors, Kanye West, Drake and Shadow Boxxer.

Between 2012 and 2015 Drizilik dropped four mixtapes: 2 Fingers UP 1&2 , Since 1994 & Best Flow Possible. But it was the one-off single, “Pop Collar” , that propelled him into the spotlight.

In 2016, Drizilik delivered his anticipated 5th mixtape, Ben 10 over 10, and gave it away for free. The critically acclaimed record earned him several awards including Best New Artist at the Inaugural National Entertainment Awards and The Next-e Young Entertainer Award.

With his album ‘Shukubly’, Drizilik sets out to be the voice of his generation. Shukubly is a metaphor for a local and global community that inspires Drizilik’s lifestyle and music. He takes this role seriously because, as he says: “ Know wetin you want, know wetin I with, know wetin you willing for gi fo get am.” On this 5 track offering, the artist encourages his peers to do the same.

Described as his most personal album to date, Drizilik raps about his real-life over production by the likes of Sierra Leonean producers,Solo’s Beats, Augu6tin, Bash Beatz, Nashito Kulala as well as Youtube’s own Alvin Brown, Nanzoo & Alexay Beatz. Shukubly is a layered presentation that deals with what’s on the surface and what lies beneath.

It also serves as a soundtrack to the everyday happenings of a growing social community.

Having already dropped monster singles such as ‘Aw Fo Du’, Drizilik carves a new lane away from the rap of today’s radio.
