Biography

               

Spilulu is originally from Lubumbashi / Katanga, Democratic Republic of Congo. At the start of his musical journey he was mainly recognized as a steady HipHop, R&B and House producer.

In 2009, Mzilikazi Wa Afrika quickly discovered Spilulu (back then named G’Sparks) and signed him to the label “Bomba Record”. This milestone turned Spilulu into a real “TribalHouse beat Monster”. As a result, Spilulu was featured in Mzee’s album “Tamanini”. Spilulu and Mzee formed the ATeam alongside Jaso Moke, Silly M, Sbonza, Morra Derey, Willie and Godheaven.

After this huge success, Spilulu quickly followed his production with another musical breakthrough named Mukubwa, released by Offering Recordings. Mukubwa has been supported by many living legends such as Louie Vega, Black Coffee and Jerome Sydenham. His ongoing success and international prestige resulted in multiple releases on quality record labels around the globe, including Arrecha, Nulu Records, Bomba and Peng Africa.

2015 was a glimpse of what is yet to come for Spilulu, one the top 100 most influential people of Lubumbashi. He also had his first professional experiences in Kenya and Asia. 2016 is the big kickoff of his global DJ career with upcoming European tours and the release of his new album “Shonta Mu Mbingu” on Offering Recordings, alongside many other great productions.

Spilulu is the human representation of the musical future of the heart and center of Africa, the Congo.
