Fashionisto Of The Month: “The Orginator Of Jollof Music”- LYNXXX

 

Our Fashionisto of the month for November is LYNXX, who began his onstage hip-hop career as Syndik8 Records recording artist and CEO of the label.

LYNXXX is the orginator of Jollof Music, Africa’s first Pepsi brand ambassador and is one of the most exciting new artists on the African music scene.

After 10 years of observing the industry from behind the scenes, he exploded onto the scene in December 2009 with the release of his first official single, “Change your Parade”, produced by Syndik8 inhouse producer and partner ’IKON’’. The single was an immediate hit, taking over the airwaves, dominating clubs and cultivating a significant following through online media.

Dress The LYNXXX Way
LYNXXX style is all about dressing up. His penchant for luxury is a hallmark of the modern hip-hop look and translates from casual to formal. To really capture the his look, you have to have the right combination of well-made clothing worn in a relaxed style.

His sports the style of success without the stuffiness of old-world wealth or the garishness of newfound riches. LYNXXX raises the level of expectations from the everyday fan and artist to bring a level of sophistication not just to hip-hop fashion, but to fashion in general.
His mixture of fine materials and design lines can be found in such items as the T-shirts, jackets and blazers for a classic LYNXXX look.

We love his style, what about you?
 

More about LYNXXX

 

In December 2010 Lynxxx released his debut studio album ‘This is Lynxxx’. The album boasts a rich combination of different musical genres from Urban Hiphop to contemporary RnB and infusions of Funkyhouse. This combination of diverse styles has been fondly dubbed “Jollof music” by Lynxxx i.e. the art of blending various genres to make good music.

In 2010 Lynxxx became the first Nigerian artist to be endorsed by the global brand Pepsi, which set in motion his dream to become a global ambassador for Nigerian music. His endorsement sets him alongside Akon, the fist African artist to be endorsed, as well as Rihanna, Madonna and the late Michael Jackson.

Aside from his musical career Lynxxx is also an entrepreneur who has established various lucrative businesses prior to the launch of his musical career. These include his clothing line (Syndik8 Denim), a digital recording studio (Red Room Studio- where various Nigerian artists like Sasha, MI, Ikechukwu etc have recorded), and a media company Happy Teddy Media (HTM) & Syndik8 films.
