As he gears up to release his forthcoming debut EP Prince Of The Throne in only a matter of weeks, 16-year old rapper and songwriter KILT KRANIK debuts the E.P’s lead single titled “African Bad Boi”.


Backed by Buster Keyz’ trademark drum patterns, keyboard and lush synths, Kilt Kranik rides the riotous backdrop with much ease, fluidity and experience that is far beyond his years, whether it be on the beguiling hook where he produces a catchy and infectious melodic showing or on the verses where he highlights his stellar wordplay and lays down some memorable punchlines.

Giving you a taste of what to expect from the forthcoming 10-track E.P that is Prince Of The Throne, “African Bad Boi” sets Kilt Kranik up nicely as one to definitely watch out for Nigeria’s Pop music landscape in 2013. 


KILT KRANIK is a 16-year old rapper and songwriter that is poised to take the African music scene by storm. Signed to Gberatinrin Studios, ‘Kranik’ as he is fondly called started music at about the age of 13 when he was in Junior Secondary School and since then has been growing his craft exponentially.

The fast-rising all-round artist was the first artist signed to Gberatinrin Studios and features on the label’s #VirusdaMixTape project alongside the likes of Phizzle, New Kentro World and Mini Yong.

Kranik’s debut single “Takeover” was released in December, 2011 and has been enjoying massive radio and media support across the country. “Takeover” was recently at the number 7 spot on KISS FM Abuja weekly chart countdown and is also in the top 10 of other various Radio station charts. Kranik also features on the hook on Phizzle’s massive “Rewind Your Mind” single which is also currently enjoying good airplay across the country.

Kilt Kranik’s latest solo single “Wagwan” is also featured on the recently released #VirusdaMixtape compilation - its music video is currently doing the rounds on TV stations all over the country - while his recent collaborative effort with fellow label mate Mini Yong titled “Go Hard” received rave reviews from tastemaker blogs, online publications and online audiences alike. As he gears up to release his forthcoming debut EP titled Prince of the Throne (POT) later in the year, “African Bad Boi” gives us only a taste of what we can look forward to from the 16-year old rising star.
