Early Years

Solomon Ayoleyi Hanniel was born on December 6th 1993 in Lagos, Nigeria. This talented young man is an author, composer and singer navigating between Naija Music, Afro Dance and Dancehall, tinged with R & B / Soul.

As a young boy, Solomon enjoyed playing music and listening to it. His father was a pastor of the Ondo Satate while his mother worked there as a caterer.

The family was into music from the beginning. They are all talented for music in one way or another, and this is what makes them all so successful in their own fields.

Solomon loved listening to music and singing, which was the reason for his family to support him in his desire to pursue a career in music. When he was only 14 years old. Reekado started recording his first songs. A big help then, was his older brother, who is now a music producer.

His brother produced his first songs, and gave his enough motivation to start recording more and more and also to practice his singing talent.

His brother also played a major role in teaching him the basics of singing and music in general, so he owes him big time for the success he managed to achieve.

His stage name Reekado comes from the combination of two names, which translate as Strong ruler and wealth.

Reekado continued to practice his singing talent and push harder to become even better, so his career was bound to go only one direction.

Very young, Reekado Banks, helped by his older brother, began writing poems and rap songs to get into the music.

During his last year at the University of Lagos where he studied History and Strategy, he participated in 2013, in front of 5,000 people, at the “Mavin Records Talent Hunt Competition”, a talent discovery contest organized by the musician and producer Don Jazzy, founder of the Mavin Records label.

Seduced by the voice and style of the young singer, winner of the contest, the latter signs and incorporates him to the Team Mavins, and makes him participate in the single “Looku Looku”.

In February 2014, he released “Turn It Up”, a dancehall, R & B, soul-themed single, performed with the Tiwa Savage who is considered diva of Naija music. Two other singles will follow, “Chop Am” and “Katapot”.

Reekado Banks will appear in 2014 in albums, singles and mixtapes of Team Mavins and various artists of the Nigerian scene: “Arise”, “Lori Standing”, “Dorobucci”, and “Adaobi”. His songs are slowly starting to conquer the rest of the world, and slowly his fame is starting to get spread all around the world.

Reekado Banks always has something new in store for us, so he will probably be releasing something new pretty soon. Until then, we can enjoy his songs and dance the night away.

Career Path

When it comes to his career beginnings, his brother played a major role in that as well. Without asking Solomon, his brother sent out his songs to the Mavin Records and submitted them for a competition in which they were looking for new talents.

Even though there were around 5000 requests, he still managed to get chosen as a rising talent. He admitted that his brother submitted the request without his knowledge in an interview with the National Mirror.

His brother even spoke with the label about all the details without telling anything to Reekado, so many wonder if Reekado even wanted to do something like that. However, in the end everything turned out better than expected.

Reekado’s first songs with the Mavin Records label, “Turn It up Tiwa Ti”, “Chop Am” and “Savage” have received and still receive rave reviews by fans and media in Africa. His interventions on the hit Mavins are also very worthy of mention.

On February 14, 2015, his third single, “Katapot” is published online. He started something new and unknown that startled a new trend among music lovers. The song gets awesome reviews, reaching 5th place on iTunes in the first seven days.
