Ezi Emela – No Lele
Manchester born Ezi Emela has a diverse network of influence. Born to Nigerian parents, the British songstress has kept a tight grasp on her African heritage and takes the shining elements of UK culture to create her brand new single ‘No Lele’.
The record is doused in sensuality with a lick of fierce determination as the velvet tones of Ezi Emele entwine their way across the Omeiza beat. The afrotrap-leaning record makes a bold statement about Ezi Emela and her persistence in the face of any doubters.
Accompanied by an equally mesmerizing video that sees the former Chanel model take on many different guises, the colour and dancing cascade across the screen in an amalgamation of fashion, UK street and African culture.
Having previously released a variation of music that has seen Ezi Emela sway between styles and vibes, including a clearer British R&B sound on Voicemail through to her collaborations with some of the biggest African music legends such as PSquare, 2Face, Idibia and Chocolate City, it is No Lele that takes elements of all to make this her biggest records to date.
