With over three million streams, an award-winning debut album, and sold-out concerts, Sierra Leone’s Drizilik has again set record as he shut down this year’s Ecofest Music Festival, the biggest music festival in Sierra Leone and Africa hosting other popular musicians from across Africa.
This year’s Ecofest, which was titled “The Conquest” played host to popular musicians, show hosts, and comedians from across Africa including Shatta Wale from Ghana, Nancy Isimi from Nigeria, Hilary from Ivory Coast, Kindo Armani from Sierra Leone, Ans T Crazy from Guinea, Star Zee from Sierra Leone and more.
Despite the numerous social media backlashes by some artists’ overpayment, the Ecofest music Festival still remains one of the biggest Music Festival in Sierra Leone and Africa.
Video uploaded by Award-winning musician, Drizilik has in the last week garnered over 14 thousand views and lot of comments.
With over three 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.
