El'Vee
Jeremy Williams-Chalmers, Arts Correspondent
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...
