El'Vee are an Afropop duo, which consists of twin sisters Lilian and Vivian Nwaneho.
They were born in Lagos, Nigeria and grew up in Reading, UK.
Their love for music, drew them back and forth to Nigeria, and as independent artists, they have been delighted to work with renowned musicians like Don Jazzy, Sarz, Tiwezi just to name a few.
Their latest single is ‘My Butter’: an up-tempo inspirational record which embodies strength in positivity, hope and belief in oneself. Butter in Nigerian culture is also a metaphor for good life and prosperity.
We caught up with the duo to find out more about their own music tastes, asking them what song makes you...
Viv- Black Eyed Peas- Where's The Love? The happy, inspirational song brings me joy and makes me smile.
Lil- Lecrae ft Tori Kelly- I'll Find You. The message in the song and the story behind the video is moving.
Viv- Stormzy- Blinded By Your Grace. This song brings me to my knees and it helps me meditate and reflect.
Lil- Paul Kleverly- Spell. It's really a funny song.
Want to work out
Viv- Call on me by Eric Prydz
Lil- Gospel Music by Tasha Cobbs Leonard and Sinach. Definitely one those songs that helps you reflect and be inspired.
