About Bongo ByTheWay

Uforo “Bongo” Ebong, better known as Bongo ByTheWay, is a Grammy-winning platinum record producer originally from Nigeria and raised in both Florida and Rhode Island (currently residing in Los Angeles, CA). Bongo became known for his unparalleled talent with production; he also plays bass, piano and a multitude of other percussion instruments. As a child who grew up in the church, Bongo took to music as an outlet early on and received teaching from his musically inclined older brother beginning at age eight. By the time he was eleven Bongo began creating his own beats and got his first major placement on a Musiq Soulchild track when he was only 18. After earning a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of North Florida, Bongo relocated to the entertainment epicenter of Los Angeles to focus on his music full-time. But despite his early expression of talent and validation from big names in the industry, Bongo ByTheWay never stopped striving to get better and better and merge his instrumentalist background with the wave of new technology available. As the rising super-producer has explained, I grew up appreciating organic sounds. I played in the church, I grew up listening to Erykah Badu and The Roots, people that really have that feel of the instrumentation. But at the same time, I do appreciate the nuances of technology because they allow you to express yourself in a new way and have different soundscapes that are cutting edge.” 

As his career was taking off majorly beginning in 2013, Bongo became widely known for his production on Big Sean’s number one album Dark Sky Paradise and Documentary 2 by The Game. Bongo’s unique high-caliber production turned heads throughout the industry and has since led him to producing tracks for Roddy Ricch, Nipsey Hussle, Jeremih, Eric Bellinger, Kanye West, Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar, Ty Dolla $ign, Snoop Dogg and Future among many others. He’s a 4-time Grammy nominated producer for songs with YBN Cordae and BJ the Chicago Kid and his landmark Grammy Award winning production on “Free From It All” by Hip Hop – Gospel crossover star Lecrae and his extensive discography has cemented him as one of THE most sought-after producers for popular urban music. In the summer of 2020, even amidst a global pandemic, Bongo ByTheWay secured two Billboard number ones for his chart-topping production on Teyana Taylor’s The Album and Pop Smoke’s Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon. A high-achieving person by nature, there’s no doubt that BongoByTheWay won’t stop his grind, no matter how many accolades he earns. As this super-producer says himself, If you’re not truly passionate about it, you’re not going to go the extra mile.”

 ABOUT DANILEIGH:

DaniLeigh has quietly become an inescapable force in music, fashion, and culture, at large. Beyond amassing 1 billion combined global streams and building an audience of over 3 million Instagram followers and 1 million YouTube subscribers, the 25-year old platinum songstress was named a Rolling Stone Breakthrough Artist, while HIGHSNOBIETY christened her “one of the most forward-thinking artists in the game,” and Refinery29 described her as “a fly girl who knows without a doubt that she’s fly, but doesn’t care if you agree.” Born Danielle Curiel to Dominican parents in Miami, she emerged under the watch of royalty when Prince handpicked her to direct the 2013 music video for “Breakfast Can Wait.”  The late legend acted as her mentor as she developed a signature style.

Upon signing to Def Jam in 2017, she dropped the single “Can’t Relate” (featuring YBN, Nahmir, and YG). Her debut EP, Summer With Friends, (September 2017) contained “Lurkin’” (heard on Season 2 of the HBO series Insecure); and “All I Know” featuring Kes. Her Shiggy-created version of Drake’s #InMyFeelingsdance challenge went viral, raking in over 10 million Instagram views. Her 2018 debut album The Plan, set DaniLeigh on her way to over 1 billion combined global streams for her RIAA platinum smash singles “Lil Bebe” remix featuring Lil Baby (which marked her debut television performance on Seth Myers), and “Easy” remix featuring Chris Brown, which earned a 2019 BET Soul Train Award nomination for Best Dance Performance.

After the October 2019 release of “Cravin'” featuring G-Eazy, DaniLeigh surprised fans with My Present, a 4-song EP of brand new tracks that was a personal gift to herself on the day of her 25th birthday, December 20, 2019.  In the midst of the 2020 pandemic that ensued came two late-spring smash collabos, “Levi High” featuring Da Baby, followed quickly by the sizzling “Dominican Mami” featuring Fivio Foreign, and “Monique,” soundtrack of Finish Line’s high-profile #ShoesSoFresh campaign.  In conjunction with the campaign, she appeared in the Chapter 1 Parks Department video with Caleb McLaughlin (from Stranger Things) and Lil Durk, which generated over 11 million YouTube views in its first two weeks out.  All three single + video releases would be included on DaniLeigh’s second album, MOVIE, (November 2020), a 16-song release accompanied by a visual album counterpart that will undoubtedly live up to its title as her biggest and boldest body of work yet.
