Geko is an 18 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 at still the tender age of 12 that he started taking music seriously and became the online and youth phenomenon he is now.
Starting out making music and rapping about what matters affected him most, the significant loss of his brother was a life changing point for Geko who admitted that in that period he had to grow up quickly, causing his music style and approach to change.
In his early teens he became affiliated with music group USG, after sending his music to the team which earned him the chance to not only perform all over the country but also to learn and progress musically so early on in his career. His talent and self confidence drew a lot of attention to the young rapper among many UK artists affording him the opportunity to perform an acoustic session with Mic Righteous, Lowkey and Logic at just 14 and collaborate with other artists, such as Jaja Soze, Ard Adz, Sho Shallow and Lady Leshurr.
