Speaking on the collaboration, Kel-P stated, “When Chikoruss sent his verse, I was mind blown! Just the right spice the song needed.” Chikoruss added, “It was great collaborating with Kel-P and blending our different styles of music. There was a genuine connection on set and that’s exactly what the song represents.”

After contributing to the worldwide success of Afrobeats by producing for Burna Boy, Rema, Adekunle Gold, Davido, and Janelle Monaé, and winning a Grammy for his collaboration with Angélique Kidjo, Kel-P launched his career as a performer in 2023 with “Bully Season Vol.1” EP. The lead single, “One More Night,” stands out for flipping Nelly and Kelly Rowland’s iconic R&B hit “Dilemma.”

Made with the dancefloor and women’s ears and hearts in mind, the “Bully Season” EP series brings the seasoned hitmaker into the limelight. “As a human, I feel I always had to bring out the Bully in me to shake the table and get what I want from life,” Kel-P said. “This inspired the name as it’s the journey of my work ethic, my wins, my losses, my relationships, my life leading to this moment.”

Born a twin in the city of Calabar, Kel-P lost his mom at two years old. He and his brother moved to Lagos where they lived with relatives. At a very young age, Kel-P met his first musical mentor, Sarz, who encouraged him to compose his own instrumentals. He quickly developed his signature style, a colorful and dynamic sonic vision. He notched his first marquee production with Solidstar’s “Eleganza” in 2018.

Building a sterling reputation, Kel-P linked up with Burna Boy and produced 10 tracks from the superstar’s 2019 blockbuster album “African Giant,” including “On The Low,” “Gbona,” “Killin Dem,” and “Pull Up.” Kel-P’s catalog continued to expand, highlighted by Wizkid’s smash hit “Ginger” feat. Burna Boy, “Donne-moi l’accord” for Dadju and Burna Boy, “Diamond Platinum” for Jeje.

Branching out, Kel-P produced “Faith” from Skip Marley’s “Higher Place,” scoring a GRAMMY Award nomination for Best Reggae Album. His instantly recognizable tag, “It’s Kel-P vibes,” has become synonymous with transcendent hits.

“It was time to put a face to the name Kel-P. I knew this was the next level. I could feel it. While I was producing for all of these other artists, I was learning. I’ve always wanted to drop my own project, but I was working on myself throughout the whole time. Now, I’m heading into this new artist journey, and I have a lot to show the world.” – Kel-P stated

2022 saw Kel-P receive a GRAMMY in the category of Best Global Music Album for Angélique Kidjo’s “Mother Nature” and a Grammy nomination for “Made in Lagos: Deluxe Edition” by Wizkid. Most recently, Kel-P received recognition for a memorable appearance on the blockbuster “Creed III” soundtrack, executive produced by J. Cole’s Dreamville, with “Blood, Sweat & Tears,” which was nominated for this year’s NAACP Awards.
