Manchester born and of North African Heritage, viral superstar Geko has revealed details of forthcoming UK headline tour.
Channelling his undeniable ‘good vibes’, Geko; continues to be at the forefront of a genre-defying scene that fuses elements of UK Rap & Afrobeats. Taking it one step up, he teams up with Afro B on the contagious Y; one of the new school of Afrobeat artists emerging from the UK.
After selling out his headline tour at the end of 2015, proving that his infectious positive energy and ability to create and catch a vibe goes far beyond his social media command of his staggering 135K followers on instagram. This unique amalgamation of sound has resonated with fans globally and amassed him nearly 6 million views on his stand out track ‘Baba’ alone, as well as over 25 million combined views on his YouTube Channel ‘One Tape Records’.
Geko continues to impress with his striding moves through the UK scene; from being the youngest person to ever step inside Charlie Sloth’s Fire in the Booth, to collaborating with premiere UK artists such as Lady Leshurr, Moelogo, and WSTRN on their platinum selling In2 Remix alongside Chip & Wretch 32. His debut headline tour sold out and his independently released videos attain millions of views per video.
Always a conversation starter, Geko responded to his fans demand for more music with recent single Y feat. Afro B and produced by Ill Blu. A summer anthem set to dominate the rest of the year.
