Flash also known as Flash Worldwide is a Nigerian-born performer and songwriter who graced the music scene in 2016 with a unique blend of sound and distinctive vocals which we first heard when he was
featured by popular Nigerian producer “Sarz” on the song “Get up”, the song which also features DJ Tunez Who is also the official DJ of starboy, a movement spearheaded by iconic Nigerian musician Wizkid. The song progressed to become a smash hit and one of the biggest Afrobeats song released 2016/2017 and this new sound sound curated by Flash, became a precursor to the birth of a new African sound for the next gen.
In 2018, Flash was also recognized by Fader Magazine, a music style and culture magazine that has featured international musical acts (Like: Drake , Kanye West , Nicki Minaj , Travis Scott , Kendrick Lamar to list a few) , as one of the 13 artists to watch in 2018. The 2018 list also featured American Rapper saweetie and Interestingly , Flash was the only African act (at that time) recognized by Fader.
