Lil Kesh, born Keshinro Ololade, is a young artiste who burst into the limelight in 2014 with the hit song Shoki. Before ‘Shoki’ he had “Lyrically”, a single which made him popular among Nigerian Universities and on the street. Same 2014 he got the biggest recognition when Olamide and Davido jumped on the hit song – ‘Shoki’ for a Remix. The Remix went further and earned him a wide reach.
