Without even an album yet, Salimo has millions of plays on Spotify, millions of views on YouTube and 18,000 subscribers on Instagram. The artist captured the attention of the French media, such as rap2france, at the age of 16 and has never ceased to surprise the industry since then. After opening for international rappers such as Youssoupha and French rapper Sofiane and winning the Futurstar contest, Salimo released his first hit “Une Histoire, un début” on July 8, 2017.
He was then seen at the great Quebec-Maghreb festival as part of the Festival Week-ends du monde, during the Moroccan National Day at Jarry Park and at the Moroccan Festival in Laval. This was followed by an opening act for Niska and Maitre Gims and a one-hour show at the last edition of the Francos de Montréal.
He is still the youngest artist to have performed in the history of the Francos de Montréal, in a headlining concert.
