An artist that blends unorthodox creativity with exciting rhythms and vocals, Nigerian rap maverick, prettyboydo, exudes vibrancy - not only through his sound but in his style as well.
With music that is bound to make you move, prettyboydo holds a certain type of energy that washes over you with each one of his tracks. His songs offer a fresh take on classic R&B and Dancehall, underpinned by deep African rhythms – a nod to his Nigerian roots.
prettyboydo’s highly distinctive cadence and larger than life personality coloured his latest project, ‘Wildfire’, released earlier this year. The album showcases the polymath’s versatility, with the Dancehall-tinged “Bulala”, the hugely popular “Dey Go Hear Wehh”, a straight lyrical display on “Odeshi”, the oozing sensual appeal of “Mentally” and the project standout “Wetin You Smoke”.
Already boasting huge support from the scene, including opening up for fellow Port Harcourt native Burna Boy on the US leg of his tour, prettyboydo is in good standing to ascend to the throne and take the world by storm.
Armed with a unique artistic disposition and cutting-edge look, prettyboydo is an assured one to watch in the coming year as he continues to make waves in the Alté scene.
