Akiib whose real names are Teslim Omotunde Is a Nigerian-born Artist/Record Producer/Songwriter whose genre of music is a fusion of Afrobeat and Pop spiced up with some Hip-hop, Fuji, and EDM elements.
His musical traits can’t go unnoticed with his powerful vocals and his melodious ad libitum framed around the choir-feel backup vocals.
Akiib took a decidedly different direction choosing to lean into a wider array of genres to capture the heart of his listeners. Akiib in His own words describes His sound as a plater if the music was to be a meal. Where you can always find different bits, chunks, and varieties.
