GEKO

Geko is an 20-year-old artist of North African descent hailing from Manchester, who started writing raps at just 10-years-old. However, it wasn’t until two years later, still the tender age of 12, that he started taking music seriously and became the online and youth phenomenon that he is now. By 17, Geko, alongside his manager Shaz, had created his own record label One Tape Records. Signed to his own UK based independent label, he has released hit singles "Baba," "Love Me" and "Over & Under." Another song of his, "Heartless," reached #9 on the iTunes chart. Being of Algerian and Libyan decent, he started experimenting with his sound and the afrobeats vibe worked in his favour with his track ‘Baba’ reaching over 9.9 million views on YouTube. His talent, now being recognised across the UK and further, was showcaed when his videos ‘Y’ and ‘Drunk on You’ reached the million views mark and beyond, completely independently!

The One Tape Records YouTube channel has reached over an outstanding 50 million views in total and, having achieved so much at such a young age, it is exciting to see where his career will take him in the years to come. He has a new project on the way called 22, keep an eye out for this...
