When we caught up with Geko
Endz2Endz’s Andre Johnson not too long ago spent time with, 18 year old rap artist Geko. He shares his experience when he first encountered him.
It was at the Ultimate Afrobeats show hosted by Dj Neptizzle where I met him. I didn’t know he was filled with so much energy and excitement.
He revealed on the show that he is originally from a rap background and that he listens to afro beats mostly.
But the rapper said “I wouldn’t be too sure what genre I would entitle myself with as I am everything, i am bashment, afro beats rnb hip hop and rap.”
His parents are from Libya and Algeria. Geko who is from Manchester, is one of few artists in the city that are really making an impact, artists like: Bugzy Malone, Drs and Trigga.
The Algerian rapper claimed how he listens to Wizkid, Don Jazzy and Davido. He mainly listens to Afro beats a lot now. Before the rise of afro beats he listened to a lot of Castro.
A rumour has gone around that Geko and female rapper Paigey Cakey are a couple. When asked by Dj neptizzle about the topic Geko said “There is nothing going on between me and Paigey. Thats my g, when we go out together its shutdown.”
Geko will have his next show on the 18th of December at Birmingham the O2 institute.
