CRAYON

Crayon’s debut EP, “Cray Cray” was one of 2019’s most celebrated releases, producing the global fine girls’ anthems, “So Fine” and “Gock Am”. Cray rose through the ranks in inner-city Lagos to getting discovered by in-house Mavin producers. As the story goes, he walked out of an examination hall with no plan. Equal parts energy and finesse, the singer’s early exploits have seen him labeled as an icon in waiting.

A standout performance on Don Jazzy’s first posse cut in years, “All Is In Order” was his first introduction. He earned him a place on multiple “Ones To Watch” lists and a “Rookie of The Year” nomination at the 2019 Headies.

Crayon’s methodical approach has earned him cosigns from 2baba and Wizkid. Deep in the pandemic’s lows, he drew from diverse influences – Latin on “On Code” to Jamaica, where he collaborated with Tessellated on “No Ansa”.

His Sophomore tape- Twelve AM EP is a conscious offering of 4 tracks that is as exploratory as it is definitive. Featuring Rema, Bella Shmurda and One Acen on the project, 2021 saw Crayon dive into a phase of self rediscovery while closing the year with ‘Excuse Me’- featuring Toby Shang.

2022 proved a defining year for the Mavin act. His critically acclaimed performance on the Mavin All Stars single- ‘Overdose’ brought him deserved acclaim. It was followed up immediately by the Sarz-produced hit summer jam- ‘Ijo Labalaba’. 2023 comes with a challenge to consolidate his artistry, and Crayon has never been one to back down.
