Samklef, a multi-talented music artis, producer, DJ and video director hails from Imo State, but was born and bred in Lagos – Nigeria. “Life on the Nigerian streets amidst the harsh survival conditions of the typical African ghetto made me business savvy and a realist,” said Samklef. “The opportunity to be part of Akon’s camp and learn from the greatest in the music and business world is an honor.”

He has worked with Sound Factory, Flow Records, Smashers Records, Back 2 Black, Mindfalls, Exp & i360 and S.O & U.,” said Rozina Neguesi , CEO of En-Treeg Records and Akon’s wife. “He a certified hitmaker, has great stage presence and is a master at engaging any music-loving crowd.”

Samklef’s debut album titled, “NONI” was released in 2010 followed by an international edition titled, “NONILIZING”, released in January 2011. He spans several years in the entertainment industry and the outcome is vast experience, which can only be garnered by working with some of the best hands in every field.

He has a record of signing over 23 artist and producers…..all of them failed. Ask R.City make dem feed you the Lamba. Don’t be desperate to sign deals….don’t be weak bro!!!! Akin has lost it in the industry……he can’t be ranked with top guns like Dj Khaled, Jay Z, Kanye etc……Akons living on past glory.
