GET TO KNOW B'KEM
Multi-Award winning American- Nigerian Artist B'kem is the first African American male to perform at the Color's Of Love platform, Recently he captured attention with the release of the Album " Take”, which has been raking in streams due to its powerful messages.
Born from Nigeria parents and raised in south central Los Angeles, meant life was never easy for him. He grew up with the cruel echo of words like, “you’re not good enough,” and “you’re not meant to do music.” Yet despite being told that he had to either be a lawyer, doctor or engineer, B’kem went to The Los Angeles Recording School and Graduated with a Sound Engineering Degree. He has never looked back since.
B’kem has performed all over, and appeared in multiple media outlets including FOX NEWS, Jamaican gleaner, Pulse Nigeria, Guide Radio, Sunny FM (Ghana), Voyage LA, Afroglobal TV, Rythmic Rebllion, Maranatha Awards, FENIX360, to name a few. What separates B’kem from the majority of his hip hop compatriots is his approach. Unlike most rappers who take the lazy approach – dirty lyrics, violent behavior, substance abuse, and naked women, B’kem searches for the truths that can be incorporated into his sound.
This is an artist in command of both power and nuance, fearlessly transforming his messages into an uplifting soundtrack. In this world you will meet two kinds of people – Those who will pull you down and those who will pull you up. B’kem belongs to the latter group.
