The Afrobeats Risers Pay Homage to Mario, the Italian Legend
There’s a very real footballing theme to all our lives at the moment and British-Nigerian twin sisters El’Vee are reminding us of one of the biggest characters in the game with their new single ‘Balotelli’. An infectious and upbeat afrobeats anthem that instantly has us pining for the return of Carnival, it’s a track that screams summer. Built on an undeniably groovy drum pattern, the track develops as the twins vocal hooks come to the fore.
“This song was inspired due to our love for football and the talent that is Balotelli. Football has always been something that brings people together, especially in African communities and we wanted to celebrate that passion through our love of Balotelli who has been instrumental to the sport globally”.
Laced with a unique, African style – It’s a track that’s rich in their own production style. The British-Nigerian duo make music that has one foot in the UK and the other in West Africa, as they take elements of the thriving Afrobeats scene and mix them with UK Club and Pop sounds, resulting in radio-friendly crossover bangers.
