Kadda Sheekoff has been writing songs since he was 11, and he’s dream is to collaborate with such artists as Blanche Bailly, Stanley Enow, Yemi Alade, and Chidinma. Some of the sounds might be futuristic, with computerized pitch adjustment, robotic beats, and phantom backing tracks, but Kadda Sheekoff often sings about Love and Fashion, like a bad boy wooing a young lady whose parents don’t approve because of his clothes or hairstyle. Kadda Sheekoff has yet to release his debut full-length studio album, but expect it to have high-octane Afropop superstar guests.
Kadda Sheekoff is a Haiti native that always puts on for his city. The singer is engulfed in the inner workings of Haiti and has created a non-profit organization called KaddAffection. The foundation focuses on mentorship programs for the youth, training first responders in the Port Au Prince area and placing mental health professionals within the schools.
“I always felt like one of my biggest duties and purposes is to hit the youth in Haiti with something that’s inspiring, help young people with something that can motivate them to be in their greatness,” Kadda Sheekoff, 27, said in an interview with About Insider.
He moved back to Haiti to focus on music full time—using The AK-47, officially known as the Avtomat Kalashnikova, is a gas-operated, 7.62×39mm assault rifle, developed in the Soviet Union by Mikhail Kalashnikov, but most Haitian and African pronounced it as Kadda Sheekoff, since 2010 Gregory Pierre as been using Kadda Sheekoff as his stage name—and by 2015, he was becoming a local star, performing hundreds of shows across the island.
But in addition to his catchy lyrics, it’s Kadda Sheekoff’s lullaby-smooth voice and danceable mixes of Afro, rap, R&B, and Haitian trap that make his music enjoyable by all. In 2019, he released his debut song, All My Life, and to date, his most well-known songs include “My Beautiful Africa”
