Akinyemi Showup2020

Akinyemi

​Rapper and Songwriter; Voice Actor, Producer

Akinyemi is a 24-year-old rapper, voice actor, songwriter, model, and producer. His name, meaning “fated to be a warrior” in Yoruba, the Nigerian tribe from which his family originates, is the basis of his October 2020 debut album, Reborn, about the journey of a Nigerian-American based in Queens trying to break the mold and create a path for future artists to do the same. Akinyemi also works with sociopolitical initiatives to continue to use his music to have a true impact. He’s been featured in media including Live Nation’s Ones To Watch blog, the “Ebro In the Morning” radio show, Vice magazine, Office Magazine, and NPR, as well as the Fresh Finds, Alternative Hip Hop, and Spilled Ink Spotify playlists.
