About this artist

Benjamin Menelik George, known as Drizilik, is a multiple-award-winning Sierra Leonean musician. His skillful songwriting, catchy one-liners, and deep cultural metaphors on his 10-track debut album Shukubly earned him the moniker of Sierra Leone’s king of new school music. He is the breakout star of Freetown’s music revival, a fusion of Sierra Leonean goombay and bubu, with hip-hop and afrobeats.

Drizilik’s range and inimitable delivery as a rapper and singer have led to back-to-back hit singles and collaborations, including ‘Shukubly’, ‘Move Right’ with Big Zuu, and the grimey classic ‘Di Mammy Im Moni Fo Komot’.

Drizilik’s sophomore album Ashobi is set for an August 2022 release date. The 14-track album is produced by an all-star cast of West Africa’s finest hitmakers, including Altra Nova in Accra, Masterkraft in Lagos, DJ Rampage, and Sierra Leonean producers in Freetown. Includes the hit single “Exodus” and “Ashobi'“ the title track featuring Idris Elba.
