At age 11, a young and energetic Nigerian Born Akan "Swisslizz" Ekpenyong had unconsciously started laying the groundwork to mold himself into a top notch music producer,, playing the drums and piano. By age 12 he was already making his own beats. Growing up listening to the sounds of Dr. Dre., Timbaland, Scott Storch, and Kanye West, (to name just a few of his influences).He hails from the city of Ph, Nigeria and moved to canada in 2007 and since then it has been history. SWISSLIZZ was drawn to the Hip Hop lifestyle, and decided to start building up from the groundwork that he had unknowingly been preparing for himself.Drawing inspiration from family, friends, mentors, and he's city behind him, Swisslizz put the pen to paper and began recording tracks over his beats, which were by now, more than just bangin on the drums and piano!!!On oct 2nd 09,he dropped his second mixtape,the genesis which was really hot on the streets.The mixtape was a master piece.Lately,swisslizz has been working with lots of local artists and he is currently working on his next mixtape which would drop in 2010.A very hard worker he is,he says this is just the begining.
