    A Recap of how Lil Kesh dominated the Nigerian music industry

    A Recap of how Lil Kesh dominated the Nigerian music industry

    Mp3bullet revisits the good old days and presents you with a recap of how Lil Kesh dominated the Nigerian music industry.

    Lil Kesh did not fail to deliver good songs that made head waves and lots of headlines during his prime.

    The former YBNL record label act created for himself unforgettable moments and hit songs that are worth reminiscing.

    In January 2014, the name Lil Kesh meant nothing to you and I. 18 months later in August 2015, he became one of the hottest acts out; a representative of the streets and the definition of a breakaway star.

    Shoki attained levels that very few could have achieved at the entry point into the industry and it thrust the 21-year-old from Bariga onto the path of superstardom.

    Shoki was great but he’s taken steps showing he understands his market and put out great follow-ups in Gbese and Efejoku that guarantee he’s definitely not on a one-hit-wonder. He’s also one hell of a performer.

    Efejoku which literally means (you will dance till you get tired) has a reputation of living up to its title.

    Lil Kesh made this beautiful street song with his former record label partner Victoh.

    Each version of the song depicts the essence of dancing erotically till you get tired.

    With Young John being the wicked producer that he is, not dancing to this song is clearly not impossible.

    The song is a combination of both a master producer and two great singers.

    Keshinro was born into a family of 5, the second of three kids, and attended a number of primary schools- a byproduct of his refusal to take school seriously.

    Stockbridge College in his backyard, Bariga was the last school he attended before ending up at UNILAG.

    He claims that music was always the dream and he learned from the sounds of Wande Coal, M.I, Tu Face, and many more picking up little things because no single artiste gave him all he wanted.

    He started off freestyling at UNILAG before he was lucky enough to get into the studio and start recording.

    One of his first recordings is the song that opened up the gates into the music industry for him, Lyrically.

    It was the song that Viktoh, his friend at the time and current label mate played to the King of the West, Olamide, and led to Kesh getting his shot at music with the backing of the YBNL movement. We know the story from there.

    Generally, parents aren’t forthcoming to the idea of their children going into music, however, with Kesh, they gave their blessings as it never stopped him from doing all that he needed to do which is evidenced by the fact that he is still studying linguistics at UNILAG despite the growth of his music career.

    Without any hesitation, the Shoki song accompanied by a dance rose the singer to fame.

    In addition, Shoki made everyone put a hand in front and another at the back with a twist to the left and right chanting Shoki Shoki!!

    It was the nation’s anthem that year, with every street was literally filled with the vibe.

    It’s a business so money is essential.” Kesh was a nominee for three awards at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards, the Best New Act, Song of the Year, and Collaboration of the year and it was interesting discovering his approach to award shows.
