Mesmerizing, charismatic with a touch of bad boy swag. International pop artist Bikai’s
shimmering, energetic voice brings a contagious, and magnetic flavor to any song, propelling
audiences everywhere to get up on their feet and dance! Born of African descent, Bikai grew up
in Washington, D.C., traveling often from the U.S. to Central Africa and France with his parents.
Cultural influences of a plethora of genres such as hip hop, and R &B, are evident on each track
that Bikai composes. Bikai recognized he had a true gift for music while helping a friend finish
the lyrics to a song. He was then pushed to start writing and singing his own music. Shortly
after, he was introduced to music producer Perk and they decided to form a group called “Oil”.
The group had an amazing performance chemistry, but due to each member having a different
vision, they decided to part ways. Bikai, determined to be successful as an artist, partnered with
BD records in 2012 and released his hit single “What You Drinking” in 2015, receiving 200k
views on YouTube.
The partnership ended July 2015 and Bikai found himself using music in a different form, as a
coping mechanism. His mother was diagnosed with the advanced stages of Liver Cancer and
just one year later, she passed away. He created music to help ease the pain, hurt, and
heartache of losing his biggest supporter. He became empowered to continue along his journey
of being thriving entertainer in the music industry.
Bikai’s latest single “Sextacular” from his upcoming EP, (set to release in Fall 2017) is currently
making waves as the hot, new anthem of the summer. Produced by Chris Irvin aka J. Bruster,
“Sextacular” showcases Bikai’s distinct sound and superstar appeal. From the moment you hear
the beat drop, the song leaves you feigning for more of Bikai’s smooth, feel good croons.
As a songwriter and music artist, Bikai is inspired by his surroundings. Much like Sextacular,
most of the songs he creates are based on situations that he or those around him have
“People inspire me and the music I make depends on how I feel in the moment. Afro-Pop, Hip
Hop, whatever sound captures my attention, I deliver”, says Bikai.
Humble, with a true heart for people, Bikai was born to entertain. Fans of urban music
against a heavy modern pop sound are sure to appreciate his artistry. Connect with Bikai on
