Cheque, the Nigerian artiste, has come through with his highly anticipated extended play (EP) titled ‘Chequemate’.


The rapper announced the EP release via his Instagram page on Friday.

“Make sure your speakers or whatever ready for midnight. The flows be crazy. Chequemate out now on all platforms,” he wrote.

In the music project, Cheque enlists the vocal dexterity of Fireboy DML and Crayon.


The 6-track EP consists of songs like ‘Shine’, ‘Hustler’, ‘Way Too Young’, ‘LPD’, ‘Sunflawa’, and ‘God Bless Me’.

Cheque, born Akanbi Bamidele Brett, began his music career in 2015 while still in university. He was then signed to Penthauze Records, a music label owned by Phyno, in 2019.

In 2020, the rapper put out his extended play ‘Razor’ while ‘Bravo’, his debut album, was released in 2021.


Last year, the rapper called out The Headies for “failing to recognize my style of music.”

“Another year and the Headies fail to recognize my music in the rap category, while melodic rappers like Durk and Roddy are idolized in the rap scene worldwide,” he had said.

“That’s why hip-hop has remained stagnant here but it is clam. I will still be dropping hits even if I do not get my flowers.”
