Born Uzo Emenike, MNEK is a British singer/producer who has worked with Rudimental, Little Mix, Kylie and Madonna who is now enjoying a hit across Europe (including a current slow burn into the UK top 10) with rising Swedish star Zara Larsson.
monstagigz last saw MNEK at XOYO a year ago and while it was an enjoyable gig it wasn’t clear where his breakthrough hit was coming from. Never Forget You (below) starts as a ballad before moving onto the dance floor to become something far more anthemic.
We’re very excited for the proper launch of Ms Larsson in the UK early next year with the 15/1/16 release of her big Swedish hit of the summer Lush Life (see below).
