Currently in a glorious limbo between a musical newcomer and an industry icon well beyond his years, MNEK is not even out of his teenage years, yet the British artist already has a Grammy nod, an array of No.1 collaborations and incredible credits to his name. Having first stepped on to the global music radar when he featured on Rudimental’s “Spoons,” MNEK has seen a steady rise in all of his musical regards, with everything from his production to singing and songwriting being met with an immense positive response. Despite the lengthy list of his recent successes, the young artist keeps his list of essentials pretty short and sweet, showing off how the items most important to him are a show of his personality and the creativity that is embedded within it. Alongside the standout items - three hats that stand as a reminder of his Nigerian heritage – MNEK places a mic and a set of headphones that immediately remind the reader to his musical core. Decorating the essentials with a series of quirky items, MNEK pairs the hats, mic and headphones with a “yes” and “no” as well as a carbonated energy drink courtesy of Pussy Natural Energy. Check out the essentials above and share your thoughts in the comments section.
