Ikon Manny is an afropop artist with focus on afrobeats and elctrolatino beats. Born in Zimbabwe and currently based in Orlando, Florida.
Started singing during my high school days, while singing in church and forming choral groups that i would lead. Recorded my first song soon after high school when i was just trying to articulate how much i was in love with some girl sic,,,I listened to the vocals they were almost like the ones i used to hear on radio so i just thought of getting serious with songwriting. I wrote more than 100 unrecorded songs in a span of four years as i was concentrating on my studies. Sadly when i graduated i never got chance to record any of the songs as i lost the writing pads i was using when i donated my previous academic stuff to other juniors. Got back to my feet and recorded few singles each year between 2012-2014 including one for dancehall.
Just had a couple of shows locally, I really liked it and looking forward to more energetic perfomances like the ones we had before.
Because my middle name sounds like AKON, i ended up listening to a lot of Akon growing up. I also liked KNaan,Wyclef Jean,R Kelly and some Zimbabwean musicians like Roki and late Andy Brown
