In the same vein, the Chief Executive Officer, Kunle Rashid, expressed delight in the three signed artists saying, “One thing that will stand these rare talents out will be their distinctive styles which are different from what we have at the moment. Interestingly, they will be merging these individual talents to create a Big Beats Records Allstars release soon.”

Profiling the three artists, Rashid explained that the Big Beats Academy where the signed artists are currently undergoing a refining process and are working with an in-house music producer.

Speaking of the artists, Rashid began with Lil Lekxy, whose real name is Olanrewaju Abdul Rasheed Olamilekan.

He said, “Lil Lekxy was born June 17, 1999 to a family of four in Alimosho area of Lagos State. He started his music career at a tender age of 13 and dropped his first single at the age 15. Lil Lekxy is an Afro pop artist who grew up listening to the likes of 9ice, Olamide, Vector and others. Lil Lexxy who hails from Kwara State, was signed to Big Beats Records in April, 2024.

“For Sosi Saheed Sabi, his life’s journey has been laced with challenges. Yet, in the midst of those struggles, Sosi never lost hope. His journey reflects in his songs which are filled with his life’s stories and hometown vibes. A native of Kenu, a small town in Baruten, Sosi’s music has touched hearts everywhere, earning him the endearing nickname “Sabi Kenu” in his hometown. Sosi was born on September 13, 1995 to the family of Mr Sosi Audu in Ilorin, Kwara State and he started chasing his musical dreams at just 15.

Inspired by the melodies of his hometown, he decided to make music his life’s journey. Leaving Kwara State behind, he went on a quest to find his place in the music world. Word of his journey spread, and excitement brewed. Sosi wasn’t just another musician; he was a symbol of perseverance, a beacon of hope, promising something big. And then came April 2024, Sosi’s moment arrived with signing a contract with none other than Big Beats Record Label.

Tyrod who hails from a royal family in Irin Oye, Okuku Local Government, Osun State, has an upbringing steeped in tradition. He completed his education at Community Secondary School Ogbororo in Rivers State before pursuing further studies at Rivers State University of Science and Technology.

His interest in music sparked at the age of 15 during his secondary school days in Port Harcourt.

Quadri’s musical style encompasses Afro pop and R&B. He began writing lyrics at 14 but only decided to pursue music professionally after moving from Port Harcourt to Lagos in 2021. His musical journey reached a milestone in 2023 with the release of his debut single, “Faraway.” Finally, in 2024, Quadri’s talent was officially recognized when he signed with Big Beats Record Label, marking a significant achievement in his career.
