Kadda Sheekoff: from Haiti to Cameroon
Kadda Sheekoff is here to bless the music industry with his undeniable charm and unique sound. His name is stylized specifically showcasing his journey from Haiti to Cameroon, always representing where he’s from and where he want to be.
Real name Gregory Pierre describes Kadda Sheekoff as The AK-47, officially known as the Avtomat Kalashnikova, is a gas-operated, 7.62×39mm assault rifle, developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov.
Kadda Sheekoff is an unusual delight. While there’s no shortage of Haitian rappers making it big across the Atlantic with various strains of R&B, Afropop, and Hip Hop, this 24-year-old Haitian artist is working in his own lane to crank out dance-floor-primed singles that feel distinctly silly, poetic, and pure.
Just when you thought this young hit king couldn’t get more impressive, he flexes his bilingual muscles in “I’m 100% Haitian but that doesn’t mean I can only speak Creole, I Can also Speak Spanish, French, English, Ewondo and other African languages.”
In addition to Afro legends Tiwa Savage, Locko, Stanley Enow and Blanche Bailly, Kadda Sheekoff gives maximum respect to Mr. Leo. He has the ability to transition from singing hooks to spitting hardcore rhymes. “I have a deep Haitian fine voice so it brings out some different kind of melodies,” he adds.
Like many young Cameroon, Kadda Sheekoff is also a hip-hop fan.
