Quick Chat with…Maleek Berry

Pride Nigeria had a quick chat with one of music’s fastest rising stars

By Emefa Smith

ES: Describe who you are in three words

MB: Creative, mysterious & musical.

ES: How did you get signed to Wizkid’s Starboy?

MB: I met Wizkid in the summer of 2011. I asked to play him some beats in our first meeting and he immediately jumped on 3 of my tracks. Ever since, we have created and built a healthy working situation. Starboy (the label) started from a conversation and the rest is history I guess.

ES: What inspires you musically & fashion wise?

MB: Musically, I get inspired by pretty much anything. I like to take advantage of my surroundings, the experiences of others as well as my own. I don’t really follow fashion trends but I do spend a lot of time on “street fashion” type blogs such as ‘The Satorialist’ because most people snapped on that blog don’t follow fashion trends either.

ES: How would you describe your style?

MB: Minimalist but fresh.
