Yes, He did that! (*insert clap emoji)
Many people know Nigerian artiste, Maleek Berry, for his cool and edgy jams like ‘Eko Miami’ and ‘Been Calling’, but Berry has been churning out hits for top Nigerian artistes years before he put the spotlight on himself. While he has produced a plethora of songs for other artistes, here are our top seven.
7. Sauti Sol – Girl Next Door featuring Tiwa Savage
If you are not the type of person that pays attention to music video credits then you’ll definitely have missed this. Sauti Sol and Tiwa Savage‘s lovey-dovey collaboration was definitely elevated by Berry’s skilful production. The vocals soared and the instrumentation came correct with all the ear candy we’ve come to love from Berry’s production.

6. Wande Coal – Baby Hello
While the first person that comes to mind when many people think about this Wande Coal tune is Yemi Alade, it really should be Maleek Berry. Why? Because he produced it of course! Berry brought the party to track for Wande and the whole of Nigeria felt it.
5. Banky W – All For You Ft. Maleek Berry
One of the first times the world got a chance to hear what Maleek Berry would sound like as a solo artiste was on this 2014 Banky W track. He not only produced the smooth track for Mr. Wellington but he also lent his vocals as he prepared to take the stage someday.
4. Wizkid – Murder Ft. Wale
It is no secret that Berry and Wizkid are frequent collaborators so when it came time to choose a track to feature American artiste, Wale, on for his 2014 album ‘Ayo’, it only made sense that Starboy would enlist Berry. Yet again, Berry delivered and created one of the more memorable sonic moments on the album.
