»I don’t have a genre,« Fave says via Instagram. And we can confirm that while trying to aptly describe the 21-year-old’s music. Let’s tell her story instead: With emotional lyrics and hypnotic vocals, Fave’s minutes-long freestyle videos went viral during the first Covid lockdown in West Africa. When »Baby Riddim« from her first mixtape »Riddim 5« was released in 2021, it hit number 1 in nine countries and since then has amassed several million streams. Her unique, poetic lyrics tell haunting stories of vulnerability and weakness, unleashing a storm of emotion that blows us away, along with the fat beat drops and high-tempo drums. Fave is sure to be an international star of the next generation of Nigerian music – whether it’s in the genres of dancehall, afrobeats, dance, R&B or pop.
