Lynxxx releases debut album ‘This is Lynxxx’ & signs groundbreaking endorsement deal with Pepsi



When Lynxxx hit the scene, noone was sure what to expect – over the past year, Nigerian rapper Lynxxx has steadily built his fanbase and climbed up the charts with hits including his debut single, ‘Change Your Parade‘ and follow-up ‘Good Luving‘ which featured Wiz Kid. Today, global drinks giant, Pepsi signed an endorsement deal with Syndik8 Records artist, Lynxxx. He is the first Nigerian musician to receive such an endorsement with the company, joining a list of stars that has over time included the late Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Britney Spears and more recently Akon and Rihanna.
An official press conference will be held on Sunday, December 19, 2010 at 1600 at the Federal Palace Hotels and Casino marquee, followed by a private concert to launch the debut album from Lynxxx titled, THIS IS LYNXXX at 1800.

Besides headlining act, Lynxxx, the concert will also include performances by Banky W, Waje, Wizkid, Naeto C, Efya, Dipo, Chukky P, Rilwan and SDC.
Lynxxx is the flagship artist of Syndik8 Records, a Lagos based recording label. With ‘This is Lynxxx‘, he is inviting audiences into the world of a talented young performer who refuses to be pigeonholed, as this multifaceted body of work shows.
With majority of the production crafted by label mate, Ikon, the unique Syndik8 sound is brought to the fore for listeners to explore.
Since the release of hit single ‘Change Ur Parade’ in November 2009, Lynxxx has been serving up little doses of his Jollof music and after a year of tireless hard work, the full course menu is ready for general consumption. Featuring some of the most exciting acts in music today, THIS IS LYNXXX is layered with classic Hip-Hop, soul musings, R&B stylings and a dash of garage for good measure, promising a satisfactory experience that will leave you coming back for more.

The album – ‘This is Lynxxx’ features Lynxxx alongside music stars including  Mo’Cheddah, General Pype, Ikechukwu, Ghanaian songstress – Efya, Naeto C and many others. The tracks on the album were produced by Ikon, Ola Babs (Syndik8 Records affiliated), DJ Klem (Knighthouse) and Killbeats from Ghana.

    this is one of the best debut albums to come out of nigeria. no hype, i dont know him personally but i didnt skip one song on this album, from up tempo songs it blends into rnb and soul and then into hiphop!!! PERFECT AND INTERNATIONAL STANDARD MUSIC , i see this guy being one of the key 2011 players! very different nd refreshing.

    y’all need to get ur facts right…. “He is the first Nigerian musician to receive such an endorsement with the company, joining a list of stars that has over time included the late Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Britney Spears and more recently Akon and Rihanna.” That is a wrong statement to make….

    He is not joining their league because he is not the face of pepsi worldwide… probably the face of pepsi NIGERIA… that in itself is a good thing..
    But y’all are pushing it by putting him in the league of MJ, beyonce and co… Those ones had their ads run worldwide, lynxx will probably have his ad run in Nigeria… i aint hating, think about it; is lynxx’s face on an ad or in a commercial in yankee or china gonna bring in money for pepsi? NO! WHY? cos he does not have a strong fan base there… long story short, bella pls get ur facts right… congrats to lynxx though, bigger things to come..


  14. the truth

    December 20, 2010 at 4:00 am

    Oops, just realised that it said first nigerian musician… scrap my jajy jay comment then…

    sha sha, the wording of the article makes one believe that he signed an endorsement with pepsi worldwide… which i doubt is the case…

    Absolutely impressed by this young man. A very diverse sound. Different from what we have in Naij and that takes courage. Keep it up. Pepsi deal is mad but ur music is madder!

    i have to say, he has officially upped the standards of Nigerian Music for all artists! setting a distinction between an album release and album LAUNCH!!! every star was in the building from Genevive, mi, to banky! the performances were amazing and LYNXXX STAGE PRESENCE WAS INCREDIBLE!!! the album is a must!! ill say the best album to come out in years!!! WELL DONE

    for those that dont know, lynxxx sister is an editor on bella naija…not sayin thats the reason for the hype but hey…i am just saying. doubt she’ll let this comment go thru tho.

  18. to the truth

    December 21, 2010 at 12:15 am

    @the truth, get ur facts right he represents pepsi period. at the press conference the pepsi reps said he joins the league of the likes of Mj etc to be endorsed by pepsi………and its not pepsi nigeria he represents africa!

    why do we like to bring others down?

    • the truth

      December 21, 2010 at 11:22 pm

      my point is he is not onna have the impact MJ and the rest had… He might be repping pepsi africa, but really tho, how far will that go? Nigeria, Ghana, maybe Kenya and SA…

      I’m not hating, i think it is impressive… and u clarified sumn, u said he’s being endorsed by pepsi… the article on here made it sound as tho he will repping pepsi worldwide… and my dear there is a difference bwtn pepsi worldwide, and pepsi continentally and pepsi regionally…

      its like u hv been in a cave bcos if u have been in Nigeria or intune with nigerian music u would know that he had one of the most popular songs the whole of 2010! do ur research on ‘change ur parade’

    December 21, 2010 at 2:13 pm

    have u heard the album??? i must say its or if not the best album to drop from nigeria in years! there is something for everyone on it…. to be honest, i was expecting the same kind of songs all through but from the beginin of the the album the diversity overwhelmed me, theres this song called mixed signals, a cross between rnb and hiphop its a must listen for us ladies!!! wish u all the best Lynxxx, u have proved ur worth!
