Slick combined his passion for music with his other talent in Information Technology after graduating from university. As a highly skilled and certified technical consultant Slick P worked in many countries all over the world. He of course got involved in the local music everywhere he visited be it Mexico, Germany or Paris. The influences from his travels can be heard on tracks like International Citizen, Jaiye and Business Plan.
His work in information technology led him to start Onpoint Consultancy, which is now a successful business and technical services firm based in Nigeria and the U.K. In recognition of his business acumen, Slick P was also appointed as an associate lecturer specialising in project management at the School of Management, University of Surrey.
Finally in late 2006, Slick took the advice of many and started writing lyrics. In April 2007 he recorded his first song Business Plan with German rock band Radio Road West. He immediately went on tour with the band in the summer of 2007 delivering widely acclaimed stage performances at the massive Museum Festival, Frankfurt and other street festivals in Germany. He spent the next three years recording his first album working with three highly respected producers, Chris Tucker (Radio Road West), DJ Homeboy and Ikon. Together they have come up with a debut Album that promises to be a masterpiece.
In July 2010, Slick P signed a management and recording contract with Nigeria’s number one record label, Storm records. The first album called “The Business Plan”, promises to be the most eclectic from any Nigerian hip-hop artist reflecting Slick P’s vast international exposure. Lyrics are delivered in English, Yoruba, Pigeon, German and Spanish. The music is a medley of genres from Jazz, Afro-beat, Rock, American Hip-hop and U.K Funky House.
The first two singles ‘Jaiye’ and ‘Melody’ will be released in July 2010 with a full album launch to follow later in the year. Slick P’s mission is to inspire, entertain and contribute to increasing Nigeria’s role in world music.
