About

 

Maleek Berry is a British-born Nigerian singer-songwriter and producer, internationally known for his original African inspired melodies and production. Born in the heart of South London, Maleek (real name Maleek Shoyebi) grew up listening to some of the biggest names in R&B from Tevin Campbell, Boyz II Men and Jodeci. Berry started his career in the Church, forming a group with two close friends. Managing to source a little pre-production setup – Fruity Loops – the group began writing, producing and performing their own songs at the ages of 14 and 15. Maleek continued to work on his craft around his education. Having achieved a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, he became solely focused on his music. Having worked with prominent artists such as Wizkid, Davido, Chip, Rudimental, Not3s and Estelle, Maleek is bringing a fresh and unique sound to the world deriving its deep influence from the Motherland. His biggest hits thus far include, Kontrol, The Matter and Sit Back Down with Not3s, on which he features and produced.
