With influences as diverse as Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa – vocally in a song you’d expect to hear something masculine, straight point. A totally no-nonsense situation and Sliimsam on his brand-new release ‘Pizzy’ doesn’t disappoint.
Sliimsam (real name Samuel Otoru Omubo-Dede) hails from Beyela State, a region in the infamous, internationally-influential West African nation of Nigeria. At only 25 years young he’s been honing his rap skills in the shadows and listening to his voice it goes with his lyrical delivery like Bun goes with Cheese! Deep, gravely, dulcet tones.
His lyrical delivery is what you’d expect from a lover of Trap music. Boasty, Bragging, self-confident, self-assured – everything an emcee should look to be, or at least understand.
