Artistry

Lil Kesh's versatility and style of music has been similarized to that of Olamide who raps and sings in his local dialect.However, he has been criticised for using too much vulgar sentences and not finding the right balance in the lyrics of his songs.In an interview with Naij he said they are singles not an album, I know the kind of market am directing my songs to, am from the streets, I know what the people from the street want to listen to...they should wait for my album that is expected to drop towards the end of the year. I have very positive songs.
