Shallipopi ended 2023 as the hottest act out of the country following a series of captivating releases and performances that have reverberated throughout the Afrobeats space. His fun and quirky perspective of the genre has drawn several fans to him, who are mesmerised by the energy he brings to the dancefloor and his concerts. The partnership between Dapper Music and Plutomania Records is the foundation on which Shallipopi’s success so far has been built, creating a marriage of music industry expertise and Shallipopi’s undeniable talent. His influence on the industry since breaking out with “Elon Musk” is nothing short of spectacular.

The Pluto Presido follows “Planet Pluto” and his debut album “Presido La Pluto” with his third project in less than a year; a new offering titled “Shakespopi”. In typical Shallipopi fashion, the project title is a play on English Literature legend William Shakespeare which signifies Shallipopi’s unique songwriting style that depicts the dynamics of urban life and Nigerian sensitivities. “Shakespopi” presents a new layer of Shallipopi’s artistry as he explores new rhyme schemes and sound direction that are heavily rooted in Edo culture. 

“Shakespopi” sees Shallipopi go solo on every track bar one on this 9-track project. He is confident as ever on the album, opening strongly with “ASAP” and exploring new rhyme schemes on records like “High Tension” and “New Cat”. On “Billion”, Shallipopi is joined by the rest of the Plutomania Records roster, with ZerryDL, Tega Boi DC and new signees Reehaa and Jeneral offering strong performances on this feel-good record. 

The project is released under Plutomania Records and Dapper Music, continuing our quest to bring forth the best talent in the country and continent. “Shakespopi” marks the Pluto Presido’s first solo release of the year, continuing his chart dominance as the project hit #1 on Apple Music and Spotify only hours after its release. The writing is on the wall and the message is clear: Pluto Presido is here to stay.
