FAVE started making music in 2018 with her bedroom freestyles which rapidly became viral and caught the attention of industry heavyweights, including Mr Eazi’s emPawa Africa. She released her first single ‘M.O.M.M.S’ the following year and followed this up with last year’s ‘DAL’, ‘Beautifully’ and its cinematic visual and showstopping appearances on Olamide’s critically and fan celebrated 2021 10th studio album, UY Scuti.
Refusing to be defined or restricted by genre, the dazzling new gen artist has confidently showcased her flair for powerful song-writing and modern, no-nonsense takes on love songs that will no doubt become anthems, call-to-arms for her peers around the world.
