Born in the heart of South London, Maleek Berry – real name Maleek Shoyebi – grew up listening to some of the biggest names in R&B from Tevin Campbell, Boyz II Men, Jodeci and of course the one and only King of Pop, Michael Jackson. It was at this time, at just the tender age of 14 that he saw young stars break into the American music industry. Although worlds apart from the shores of London this did not deter him, but rather spark his ever-growing love of the music industry.
In April 2016 Maleek released the self-produced smash hit "Kontrol" which has gone on to become viral on the internet gathering millions of streams online across different platforms. The official video was released on his birthday in August and managed get over 100k views in less than a week. Following on from his debut EP ‘Last Daze of Summer’, 2017 has seen Maleek go from strength to strength with the rapturous release of numerous smash hit singles ‘Been Calling’, ‘Bend It’, and ‘4 Me’, alongside many other featured appearances and production credits. He was also nominated for two MOBO in the ‘Best Male Act’ and ‘Best African Act’categories.
