This man came in from nowhere with a sound no one ever imagined will be so infectious. Some people tried to down play his successes. They called his music “Nursery Rhymes” but Shallipopi had his sights set on the bigger picture; one that has his face all over. A picture that has him as a royal in the stardom kingdom.
This young man is not slowing down one bit, he now has his own record label, “Plutomania”.
Even though Shallipopi came from the trenches, he didn’t let the deep valley of poverty stop him from climbing out and aim for a spot in the sky of stars.
Crown Uzama, known professionally as Shallipopi, is a Nigerian rapper, singer and songwriter. He started doing music at a young age and even though he felt he had a lot to offer, he struggled to raise the funds needed to push his music career. The young man still didn’t give up, he kept pushing, posting freestyles and making videos on TikTok. His hard work paid off and Shallipopi is definitely who’s popping now.
He gained initial recognition with the release of “Obapluto” in 2023. Shallipopi was signed to Dvpper Music Distribution, a Nigerian music record distribution company. He is best known internationally for his 2023 hit single “Elon Musk”, which peaked at No. 1 on the Nigeria Top 100 Apple Music.
For believing in himself, working non stop and never letting the voices laced with venom kill his dream, Shallipopi is our man crush this week.
