Lila Iké is gaining attention at home and abroad with her distinctive delivery, old-school sensibilities and modern-day swagger. She released her 7-track EP The ExPerience in May 2020 to critical acclaim via RCA Records in conjunction with Protoje's label and artist management company In.Digg.Nation Collective facilitated through Six Course Records.
Lila Iké was nominated for Best Reggae Act at the 2020 British MOBO Awards, named one of 2020's Most Interesting Artists via SPIN and BBC 1xtra’s Hot For 2020 Artist. Her song "I Spy" was also chosen as one of VICE's Best Songs for 2020. She joined the late night stage on A Late Show #PlayatHome with Stephen Colbert with Protoje in December 2020 and her NPR Tiny Desk At Home has raked in 3 million+ views.
Before the global pandemic in 2019, Lila embarked on her very first solo tour throughout Europe, hit the main stage at reggae’s largest festival worldwide Rototom Sunsplash in Spain, performed on PUMA Middle East’s stage in Dubai at Sole DXB Festival and opened for Protoje on his U.S. tour. She also joined Protoje on his sets at Reggae Sumfest (Montego Bay, Jamaica) and BRIC's Celebrate Brooklyn! (NYC, USA).
In 2021, the songstress unleashed the telling track Batty Rider Shorts addressing child molestation, teamed up with dancehall artist Skillibeng for a remix of her song Thy Will and collaborated with the London outfit WSTRN on their new single Never Leave. Lila Iké continues to drop new music throughout 2022, including True Love and Wanted.
