Maleek Berry, the London-based Nigerian producer and Wizkid Starboy Entertainment signee, just dropped his new EP Last Daze of Summer.


The 6-song release is spearheaded by “Kontrol,” a dance floor jam perfect for the dwindling days of summer which already has millions of plays on Spotify and Souncloud.

Maleek Berry had previously shared a bright and colorful Meji Alabi-directed music video for the single.
