Chicago’s Wil Akogu returns with a blistering new single entitled “IDOL.” Best described as cutting edge, explosive, and defiant, the vibe of “IDOL” may remind listeners of fellow Chicago native Kanye West’s tribal like “Black Skinhead.”
The song, produced by @MikeWavvs, is the lead single off Akogu’s upcoming debut album ‘Before the Fame.’
Wil Akogu is a 21-year old, Nigerian born rapper out of Chicago. Making music since the age of 14, Akogu grew up in Nigeria until the age of 11 before moving to Los Angeles and eventually settling in Chi-Town. Calling himself a “child of the world”, Akogu grew up singing in the church which can be heard in the melodic vibes of much of his material. Akogu cites artists such as Kanye West, Rod Stewart, Macy Gray and Kendrick Lamar as influences.
