“ABOUT SAMKLEF: SAMKLEF is one of the most talented music producers/artistes in Nigeria. Spanning several years in the entertainment industry, he is gifted with a lot of experience garnered over time while working with the best hands around here in every field. In this period of time, he’s been able to perfect his primary skill as a world-class producer and also as a top-notch artiste.
His class and mastery of the skill as a producer is evident on mega hits like Durella’s My Life (Enemies), Wizkid’s Tease Me (Freestyle), Vector’s Kilode and D’Prince Mo Hits’ Jonzing World. Other artistes he’s produced for include Ruggedman, Mudina, Iceberg Slim, Sunny Neji, Skales, Simisola, J Bryte, Emmsong, O’cube and Jahdiel amongst others.
He’s also worked with several firms in the entertainment and advertising industries. Some of them are Sound Factory, Flow Records, Smashers Records, Back To Black Entertainment, Mindfalls and Exp & i360.
Already established as a producer, earlier in the year SAMKLEF tested new waters by launching a musical career. He released his debut album titled NONI in February 2010.
Several months after, he’s made an assessment of the NONI album and decided to repackage and relaunch it: Hence the birth of “NONILIZING”.
ABOUT THE LISTENING PARTY: On Thursday 25th of November, ace producer/artiste SAMKLEF will host fans, entertainment buffs and the media to his ALBUM LISTENING PARTY.
The event which will be hosted by KARMA NITE CLUB (147A Younis Bashorun, off Ajose Adeogun street, Victoria Island, Lagos) will kick off at 7pm. Here, SAMKLEF will share his experience and the album with guests as he performs several tracks from it.
