Meet ‘The Majeek’ – Afrobeats’ next big music star |

Desmond Momoh popularly known as “The Majeek”, released his first single of 2024, titled; “The Moon”. This single represents a shift from the norm in the Nigerian music scene, as “The Majeek” gives Nigerian music lovers a taste of something different with his blend of Reggae, Dancehall & Afrobeats.

As fans and music lovers continue to embrace this new sound, one might be forgiven for thinking that “The Majeek” only just began his foray into music in 2024. However, this is a story that began over a decade ago in Benin City, when “The Majeek” initially started his career as a music producer. He first rose to acclaim for his production credits on songs like ‘Peperempe’ by Klever Jay ft May D, ‘Gladiator’ by Sleezy E ft J Martins and for co-producing ‘E Ku Si Go’ for J. Martins.


As he began to look for more opportunities to showcase his talent and make a living from the craft, “The Majeek” later relocated to Lagos, where he continued to impress many industry insiders. Aside from having a knack for production and playing musical instruments, more artists began recognising The Majeek’s talent in songwriting. He co-wrote ‘Beautiful Sunflower’ featuring Tiwa Savage and ‘Another Me’ on Falz’s latest body of work; he also has more co-writing credits on Reekado Banks’ forthcoming project.

The Majeek’s career as an artist really began to kick off in 2021. His single, Cool Me Down was so well received at the time it garnered “The Majeek” some recognition from the powers that be. He later got a cosign from Boomplay as they made him the spotlight artist of their ‘New Kid On The Block’ playlist.


That was only a sign of things to come, as his consistency & growth as an artist only became more recognisable to industry insiders. His smooth blend of lyrical prowess with an RnB/Dancehall flavor and vocal versatility, gained him the opportunity to open for the top Afrobeats act, Patoranking at The Big-Name Concert in Lagos and TPE II in Nigeria’s capital Abuja. This was all topped off, when “The Majeek” announced the release of his debut EP titled; “Pressure” in 2023.

This 6-track body of work packed a punch with different genres from Afrobeat to RnB and Dancehall that showed off The Majeek’s talent and versatility. The themes for the EP cut across passion, dominance, and consistency infused with his experience of the rollercoaster called life, seen through his lenses. Again, this was warmly received by industry insiders, as well as The Majeek’s burgeoning fan base. His reward? “The Majeek” received a recording contract from Sony Music West-Africa at the tail end of 2023, making him one of the artists to look out for this year.

From all indicators, we are in for a ride as “The Majeek” represents a voice for a new sound crop within a fresh generation.
