The artist for this new month of October is Emmanuel Thompson, with the stage name Emex E.O.T. He is an Afrobeat and Afropop Nigerian singer. The fusion of these two genres is what he likes to call “Wala”. He is currently signed on to GMG Records.
Emex has been doing music professionally for three years, with hit tracks to his name including, “Kontrol“, “Priyanka“, “Good Vibes” and “Hello” featuring Ycee.
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Emex said:
“Having a sold-out musical concert in London, America, India and other countries is my biggest dream in Life and I am working towards achieving that feat.”
Acts he would love to collaborate with include: Wizkid, Sarkodie, Reekado Banks, Tiwa Savage, Diamond, Timaya, Tubaba, Flavour, Drake and Justin Bieber.
