El’vee, the Afrobeats twin duo, has put out their debut extended play (EP) titled ‘UAR’ (Unapologetical African Rhythms).
The twins announced the release of the seven-track body of work on Thursday.
The duo said the EP is to celebrate “Africa, her empowerment and rhythms.”
The project also reflects on women’s freedom.
“This EP is a celebration of Africa, her rhythms and its empowerment that encompasses our continent. It is also a project that reflects our liberation as women, with the intentionality to express our feminity and sexuality,” they wrote.
The songs in the body of work include ‘Need You’, ‘I Don’t Wanna’, ‘Ginger’, ‘Jealousy’, ‘Body Talk’, ‘Gimme Day’ and ‘Nkwa’.
‘Need You’ sees the twins talking about the mutual love between themselves and their lover.
They also talk about the special treatment they get from him.
In ‘I Don’t Wanna’, the duo express their fear of heartbreak.
“He says he like the way I talk/ Says he like the way I walk/ He wants to be my bobo, my Nigerian jollof/ But I’m scared as fuck/ Now I feel so stucked/ I can’t believe if this love is real/ Baby no go leave me on my own/ Say I need you when I dey my zone/ Promise say you no go fall my hand,” the lyrics read.
El’Vee’ is a mash of the singers’ first names, Lilian and Vivian.
The twins discovered their talent at a young age and grew up singing and performing in their local church choir.
Since their music debut, Lillian and Vivian have worked with several artistes while performing at different venues and making public appearances.
