Geko, whose recent single Y features Afro B, will be at Birmingham O2 Academy 2 on Friday 28th October. He plays a second gig in the Midlands at Stoke's Sugarmill on 31st October.

The Manchester-born 18-year-old rapper has attracted a growing fan base with 135,000 followers on Instagram and 25 million views on YouTube through his channel One Tape Records.

Of North African heritage, Geko sold out his debut UK tour at the end of 2015 and since his standout track Baba, his momentum shows no signs of slowing.

From the age of 12, Geko has been in and around music and has collaborated with Lady Leshurr, Mic Righteous and most recently Paigey Cakey.

The latest tour follows on from spots at Leeds and Reading Festivals during the summer.
