Sierra Leonean rapper, Drizilik, recently renewed his deal with Mercury International SL, a leading betting company in the country. In his statement, he expressed his pleasure in representing a trustworthy company and looked forward to another great year working with the team. However, his quote also highlights an important life lesson that can be applied beyond the world of betting.
Drizilik’s statement emphasizes the importance of taking action in order to achieve success. He reminds us that in life, there are endless possibilities, but if we don’t take the necessary steps towards our goals, we won’t achieve them. This is a valuable lesson that can be applied to any aspect of life, from personal relationships to career aspirations.
With over seven million streams, an award-winning debut album, and sold out concerts, Drizilik is the breakout star of Freetown’s music revival which is a fusion of Sierra Leonean goombay, bubu, and milo jazz, with hip-hop and afrobeats. His skillful songwriting, catchy one-liners, and deep cultural metaphors on his 10-track Album of the Year winning Shukubly record, earned him the moniker of Sierra Leone’s king of new school music. Drizilik’s range and inimitable delivery both as a rapper and singer have led to back-to-back hit singles and collaborations including ‘Shukubly’, ‘Move Right’ with BAFTA winner Big Zuu, and the grimey classic ‘Di Mammy Im Moni Fo Komot’. The 2021 MTV Africa Music Award ‘Listener’s Choice’ Nominee has rocked stages from Freetown, Lagos, to London; including Madengn Festival, Fashion Week for Labrum, Youtube’s Africa Day Concert, Sierra Leone & Gambia Music Festival, and Hull City’s Freedom Festival.
