Shallipopi’s Incandescent Takeover of Afrobeats The Colorful, Incendiary Message of Shallipopi

The dynamic Benin-born artist has been the great revelation of the musical year in Nigerian music. His slang-heavy songs are indicative of young people’s cultural significance but he’s so much more.

Shallipopi, who may well be the biggest revelation of Nigerian music in 2023, moved to Lagos in March, earlier the same year. Before then, he resided in Benin City, where he was born and also where he grew up. The city’s lore is established for its ancient kingdom which was renowned around the world and especially by the visiting Portuguese traders in the 15th century. Now it’s one of the most culturally-diverse and spiritually aware areas in Nigeria and that has translated into local pride, inspiring the city’s creatives who have emerged over the years, of which Shallipopi is presently the most transcendental.
