Flash also known as Flash Worldwide is a Nigerian-born performer and songwriter who graced the music scene in 2016 with a unique blend of sound and distinctive vocals which we first heard when he was featured by popular producer “Sarz” on the song “Get up”. The song which also features DJ Tunez progressed to become a smash hit and one of the biggest Afrobeats song released 2016/2017.

In 2018, Flash was also recognized by Fader Magazine, as one of the 13 artists to watch in 2018. The 2018 list also featured American Rapper Saweetie and interestingly, Flash was the only African act (at that time) recognized by Fader.

Flash went on to feature on a summer song “Tropicana” with Nigerian rap duo Show dem camp , the song later on went to be the biggest and most streamed song off the Palm Wine Music 2 album, the album also features Burna Boy.

Sometime in October of the same year, Flash released his debut single “Balanciego” with production credits to “Sarz”. On the record, Flash displayed a glimpse of his singing and songwriting dexterity, and behold the song got props from major artistes like Wizkid and Donjazzy.

Flash was also featured on a song by popular Nigerian Disc Jockey; DJ Neptune. The song also features Nigerian Music Legend “Dbanj.” The song was titled “Ojoro.” Flash in his musical element delivered a powerful hook and style to blend perfectly with the song’s uptempo, Flash was already cementing his place as a certified hit-maker with streak wins since his debut appearance on getup.

In 2021 , Flash teamed up with ace comedian Basketmouth for his sit-com project “Yabasi”. The track titled “World People” became an instant sensation , Flash has again proven he is a force to be reckoned with and again proven his name as a hit-maker, the song arguably became the most sought after track on the “Yabasi” project.

Flash is unarguably the ‘Moses’ of the next generation in the music industry and a perfect example we’d say of an artist with no bad songs coming in at the time when the music scene needed a breath of fresh air.

When or if you listen the next gen music of this day in Nigeria and back-date to 2016 when Flash first appeared on the music scene, you’d almost hear an influence of his sound in many songs today.
