Crown Uzama, otherwise known as Shallipopi, is a skilled rapper who shot to fame with his hit single "Elon Musk". Hailing from Nigeria, the rapper has cooked up a unique niche. Taking both the digital world and music scene by storm, Shallipopi is an incredibly talented singer who has penned the catchy "pluto" slang. In 2021, Shallipopi made his mark in the industry when he dropped the viral track "Gra Gra." The success of that killer tune was raised even more when he unleashed his smash hit "Elon Musk." The tune became an instant sensation, shooting him into the limelight and setting the stage for even more wins (hello "Sharpiru"). Shallipopi switched things up when he collaborated with Fireboy DML and Zlatan to drop his remix of "Elon Musk." This strategic move made his listener base even bigger, scoring the star his first #1 hit with "Ex-Convict."

Fast forward to 2023 and his debut EP, Planet Pluto, climbed to the coveted #1 place on the charts. The mixtape starts things off with the Afro Piano piece “Obapluto.” This first track features log drums and samples Osemwegie Ebohon’s Theatre Troupe rendition of the old Benin folk tune “Oba Ovoranmwen”. Benin language set amongst the backdrop of an Amapiano-inspired beat, coupled with Shallipopi signature catchy hooks sets the tone for the rest of the EP.

Shallipopi's Nigeria’s Most Wanted Tour comes hot off the heels of Planet Pluto. Even though the rap star is relatively new on the scene, he’s already impressed audiences with epic performances at some of the most prestigious venues around, like the O2 Arena. And this gig at the Irving Plaza will definitely follow in its footsteps!! Ever since the venue was transformed in 1971 into a music venue, it's been hailed as New York City's top music venue. Listed on the "50 Best Concert Venues of America," the Irving Plaza knows exactly how to get the crowd vibing. The Manhattan venue has already seen the likes of Talking Heads, the Ramones, U2, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. And now, the next big act in the rap scene is making his debut! Don’t miss out, get your tickets now, and experience Shallipopi live at the Irving Plaza this spring!
