The #BBNaija live show stage will be taking things a notch higher as multi-talented rapper and songwriter Ycee will be gracing the live shows on day 42.
Ycee is definitely a man of many facets, having started out in 2012 as an underground rapper and in just three years he went on to being nominated as “Best Artist in African Pop” category at the 2015 All Africa Music Awards for his song “Condo”. His music dynamism and creativity has enabled him to rub shoulders with the high and mighty in the music industry and this has also brought him to the #bbnaija stage.
Born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, Oludemilade Martin Alejo has been making musical waves both locally and internationally. Last year, he burst onto the UK scene with his smash hit, “Juice” featuring fellow international Nigerian artist Maleek Berry. The musical track garnered millions of views worldwide and infiltrated not only the modern African music scene but also the world music scene.
His “First Wave” EP, which was an eight track compilation of hip-pop/afropop brought some serious heat with the track produced by Adey becoming one of Nigeria’s biggest songs of the year. It also made huge waves in the diaspora, as it stayed on top of a number of musical charts for weeks.
Most recently YCee has teamed up with another new international powerhouse for his latest single, “Say Bye Bye” featuring Ghanian artist Eugy, just as Team Salut handled the musical production aspect.
With YCee expected to perform a number of his hit songs on the #bbnaija stage on sunday, it is certain that both the audience and viewers will definitely be in for a time of their lives as he is set to perform his hit song “Juice” and a medley of “Bye Bye” and “Omo Alhaji” from his repertoire of music.
