    Reekado Banks

    Nigerian rapper and singer Reekado Banks signed to Mavin Records just last year off the strength of his single “Turn It Up.”

    Since then, he has been making sure that his work goes beyond African borders by collaborating with D.C. rapper Wale on the single “Allelu.” The collab is heavy, a big percussive beat backed by a chorus of voices.

    The young artist is slowly but surely progressing, and seeing how he just graduated the University of Lagos, hopefully Reekado Banks will now have even more time to focus on music.
