Words by Sesan Adeniji
As a hype man, Sheye is new in the business but delivers on stage like someone with decades of experience. “My hype man career started as a hobby until I eventually realized that I could make money from it. During my National Youth Service Corps year, I had the opportunity at some of the events in camp to stand in as the hype man. An event organizer noticed I did a good job. He told me I could make a career from it. That was where my professional career as a hype man started” – Sheye
As the resident hype man for Basement Gig, Sheye also doubles as a performing artist. He has a new song out titled “Vybe & Riddim”. He’s also one of the leading OAPs at Soundcity Radio 98.5FM. As a hype man, Sheye has a commendable list on his résumé. Sheye Banks’ desire for knowledge and his determination to outperform his previous successes in the business, is one of his biggest advantages. Brick by brick, Sheye is climbing up the hierarchy in the hype man industry.
