Simba Artist Profile


Simba aka Simba The Great, real name Jermil Banks, is a talented up and coming hip-hip artist and songwriter who is the second eldest son of The Banks Brand Music’s founder IKEBoy Corey Drumz.

Simba first started recording at the age of 10 under the name “Meelie G.O.A.T. The Prince” of the group IKEKiddz, which was created by his father Corey Drumz, along with his older brother CJ Banks and his younger sister JaDaya Koray Banks (who is also managed by their father Corey Drumz and will be releasing music under The Banks Brand Music Label).

Simba has grown over the years to develop into a lyrical powerhouse both vocally and as a hip-hop & r&b songwriter. Now at 17-yrs-old, Simba is ready to take on the music industry continuing the legacy of his predecessors. His first musical appearance under the name “Simba” was in 2015 on his older brother CJ Banks’ debut mixtape Est. 95 on the song entitled “Get You Right” and he also co-wrote the song entitled “Loud.”

Currently Simba is working with his brother and sister on CJ Banks’ upcoming follow-up mixtape entitled “PRYD” from which they recently released the smash single “California Throwback” which features both CJ Banks and Simba. Following the release of the PRYD mixtape, he and his brother CJ plan on releasing a joint project entitled “Tale Of 2 Thrones” and after that, a possible Simba solo project.

Be on the lookout for more great music from Simba and The Banks Brand Music family as they prepare to continue the Banks musical legacy far into the future.
