Meet El Flaco, birth name Ifueko Ayomide Alonge, who was born in 1985 and bred in Lagos, Nigeria.
He started writing songs at the age of 8, and by the age of 10 had written his first cut. His musical influences cross over numerous genres, spanning from hip hop ‘Roc-A-Fella era’ to Fiest and Boyz Noise, and everything in between.
He moved to London in 2004, where he started putting out music under BeMe Ent after meeting up and forging a friendship with rapper Beazy and created quite a buzz in the university circuit with songs like ‘Gimme That‘, ‘Game on Lock‘, and ‘Make Way‘, among others. Now standing on his own two (having created 3rd World Funk with partner T Quizzy), he hopes to step out and carve his own footprints in the sands of time.
Expect his 1st EP entitled “The 9th Wonder” to drop sometime in August. Till then, let’s peep his cut called ‘Cuz I’m African’ which features Zee Zee.
Yup! Here goes nothing
