THE BIG BREAK
Signed under Dreams Entertainment, Locko released his first album “Skyzo” in December 2015. The successful run of the album earned him an award for Revelation of the Year at the KR Awards. He later released singles Perfect Girl featuring Numerica and Margo which received positive reviews as well as airplay on Boom TV, Trace Africa and BBlack Africa. In 2016, he released Ndutu and Sawa Romance, which was so popular that several fans sang their own covers of the track. In 2017, Locko is set to tour Asia, Cameroon, USA and Europe, on top of working on his new album.
Locko has managed to leave an exceptional mark on the youth in Cameroon with his music. He has performed in several African countries such as Cote d’ Ivoire, Chad and Congo Brazzaville, and he sold out his first ever concert in Paris as a true testament to his talent.
Locko began singing at a very early age and taught himself to play the guitar and piano - which are always part of his performances.
