UK Afro beats star Maleek Berry is set to release his maiden album later on in the year(2023). Based in Clapham, London, Maleek will begin his maiden album voyage with his first single release on the album My Way. The album titled If Only Love Was Enough is the British/Nigerian artist’s first album despite having numerous hits over the years.
Having been in the game since 2012, Maleek Berry, whose government name is Okunola Abdul Maleek Anu-Oluwapo Shoyeb is best known for tracks like Kontrol, Bend It, Own It, and Been Calling. He has managed to collaborate with other top artists including Wizkid, Drake, and Partynextdoor, and Ycee in the hit song Juice.
It’s about time for Maleek’s album and I am sure it will garner a big following. Whether or not he will garner a huge following in Nigeria is another debate but his UK following should put the album in good stead.
Based on his fresh single My Way, Maleek has started on the right foot as he is looking to do things his way. The track is accompanied by an official video already doing the rounds on Youtube’s streaming platform having massed 863k views in a month. He does have an edge over his African counterparts as he is able to have a top-quality video. The video directed by Billy King shows the rise of “Maleek” from being a bellhop, cashier, and mailman to a cowboy which is not necessarily how he has come up in life.
Get acquainted with Maleek Berry once more, with his fresh single My Way and look forward to the impending If Only Love Was Enough album. And to be fair on a real note ‘if only love was enough’. Afrobeats continues to be relevant and with such powerful titles, you can get to understand why it has taken over dancehall as the preferred genre.
