British-born Nigerian record producer and recording artist, Maleek Shoyebi, popularly known as Maleek Berry, is the face featured on the latest issue of Blanck Magazine.

The prolific Nigerian UK based artist shares his dream of creating an entirely new music genre that will pave the way for the African music talents in the UK and the world over.

Speaking about his rise to fame, he tells a familiar tale of struggle and perseverance; having to do odd jobs despite having a second-class upper grade in Computing from Coventry University and ditching all of that to pursue his dream.

With sold out shows around the globe and making jaw-dropping hits, Maleek has set his eyes on the high price of success; something he says is a very tall dream but one he is pursuing with all his might and talent.
