As you may have already known, there are very few emerging female artists in the Nigerian music industry and Alewa House seeks to increase this demographic by increasing women participation. On this note, we present to you Herbeembola, the first Afrobeat Artist to ever enrol on the platform.
Herbeembola, with the support of Alewa House, announces the release of their song "Keke".
Keke is set to hit most streaming platforms worldwide on the 10th of February 2023.
We would love your support in allowing an exceptional music artist to reach a wider audience. Even as St. Valentine's love season approaches and love songs are the norm, this artist has a different perspective to unburden with this release.
Her vocal prowess shines forth from the intro, accompanied by an engrossing instrumental, while her message urges a disloyal lover out of her life. The blend of English and Yoruba language on this track is seamless as well as endearing, keeping you wanting more.
Herbeembola (Abimbola Oyewo) boldly launched her music career with a 5 song EP in 2021, including Soul, Pop, Afrobeat, and Dancehall genres. Having sung in the church choir from a young age, Herbeembola has been following a dream of becoming an icon of positive influence through music. She was largely influenced by Tiwa Savage, Olamide, Teni, Kizz Daniel, and very indigenous styles. Her dexterity is however not limited to attracting foreign consumers. It was well established in her last project, and "Keke" is a continuation of the journey of exploring her sound. She is convinced that floating a successful music career is her destined path in life.
Her achievements include Voice 2Rep "Top 10 Finalists Material" from a pool of over 1,000 artists.
