Listen to Mannywellz' New EP 'META'
The new 3-track EP was created in just three days.
The new EP furthers Mannywellz' addictive blend of RnB, hip-hop, and West African rhythms, through self-produced songs that deal with love, leaving relationships, and faith. The project is named after the Yoruba word for "three."
Mannywellz mentions that, for META, he challenged himself to write, record, and produce three songs in three days—the result is well worth your while.
"I decided to challenge myself to see what I could create in 3 days," Mannywellz tells OkayAfrica. "This process affirmed that I'm really a lover of love as all the songs point back to love and I'm not ashamed to admit that. As a Nigerian man, being expressive of my emotions is not culturally expected of me, so I want to push back against that."
Here's how the artist breaks down the EP's three tracks—"No More," "Philosophy," and "Imperfection"—himself:
"'No More' rubbish from rubbish doers. Inspired by investing into a relationship that wasn't gonna go anywhere," the artist mentions. "Just want to shower my next with love. The 'Philosophy' is to kill her softly, spoil her with my loving. From me to God. I'll keep on giving you love as you love my 'Imperfection.'"
Mannywellz recently joined Adekunle Gold at our packed-out concert at DC's historic Howard Theatre.
