Nakuu is an R&B/Soul artist from York, PA. He started performing at his church at the age of seven. By thirteen, he was writing and producing his own songs.
His smooth vocals and rapping style came from a combination of his mother’s vocal talents and father’s musical abilities, who sung and played keyboard in The S.O.S. Band, and influenced by Lil Wayne and Chris Brown.
“Looking back, we had seen Nakuu’s name around a couple times; when he submitted for LAUNCH Music Conference & Festival 2017 and was selected to play, and when he popped up as an opener on one of our CI shows quite a while back. It wasn’t until we reviewed his submission that we were able to piece together just why the name rang a bell. All of a sudden, the entire office was like ‘wait…this is that kid who killed it on that one show a while back, and who was awesome at LAUNCH!’ Nakuu is the total package…the voice, the stage presence, the songwriting, and the drive.”
