Basky is a young talented musician the flagship artist of Honored By Kings (HBK) record label.
The act whose High Definition mixtape raked massive downloads on digital platform released earlier this year horns his hip-hop/rap facets and breaks the box of genre in the industry.
Basky isn’t a superstar yet, but he’s well on his way, and we’re willing to bet that he soon will be. He first hit the scene with his buzz single ‘Ginger’ in 2011, and while it garnered considerable buzz online (enough to get him his first few live performances) it wasn’t enough to make him pop off on the music blogosphere. What it did do however was set the stage for his debut mixtape released on June 1st 2013 – High Definition — a mix tape that carried enough weight to have 2 singles ‘Gentleman’ and ‘One Million’ ranking amongst the top downloaded tracks on music platform iROKING.com. If we’re talking numbers then ‘One Million’ has totalled 70,000 downloads since release on June 1st whilst ‘Gentleman’ has garnered over 90,000 downloads. ‘Gentleman’ was so popular that the iROKING/Africa Fashion Week London Project Team reached out to HBK to have the track featured on the fashion show mix tape. Not only was High Definition critically praised by the likes of renowned producers Don Jazzy and Sarz it literally launched Basky’s career in a major way, sparking interest from just about every major label.
Basky who recently visited the Hearts Of Gold Hospice at Surulere on November 19th in celebration of his birthday, caused a ripple effect of smiles on the children and the founder of the home.
One in a million is produced by the Prolific producer E-kelly and portrays Basky’s art as relatable in terms of performance, songwriting and singer and shows off his prowess to his female audience.
Few weeks ago we witnessed the One Million Acoustic Performance at 284 Lounge of this sensational tune “One Million” which made a lot of buzz and still receiving massive airplay.
Due to the high demand of an official video(One Million) by his fans, Basky delivered this awesome rhythmic tune whose story is about a young lady he fell in love with but could not give her much attention due to his kind of business, things got ugly with his associates and she was his saving grace.
Nice video directed by Fast rising videographer Paul Gambit.
