In a time where the world seems to have noticed the force behind African music as more than a budding genre but a massive power in international entertainment – Enamel has managed to stand out as an emerging iconic voice in the scene.
Carving his rise with his smooth melodious tone and his amazingly vivid storytelling, Enamel is described by GQ Africa as an artist on the ‘radar’. Enamel’s talent is highlighted by his ability to convert everyday life stories into infectious beats that become amazing songs. From chilling with his ‘gang’ to appreciating African women and highlighting political issues that plague the continent, his diversity in musical topic inspires creativity.
Born into a family of 5 boys and a strict mother that served as the headmistress in their local school, Enamel had to find creative ways of making music. He would often hide his journal where he wrote his lyrics in fears that it would get him in trouble. Instead of giving up on a dream that spanned from his days as a pre-teen, Enamel got his older brother to read what he had created on his journal which convinced him in aiding Enamel’s rise as a musician.
‘I want to create good music that motivates good vibes in the world. My real dream, though, is to take Afro-Pop into the world like no one has ever done before,” he shares. “It’s Africa’s time now, but let’s make it Africa’s time forever – that would be dope.”
With Enamel’s EP being released later in 2020, Enamel aims to welcome the world into his furthest adventure with music, a love affair that has professional took off into 2019 but had been in works for close to a decade. Heavy-hitters such Kel-P, Kiddominant and frequent collaborator and label-mate, Dah Richie, join him in the creation of what is set to be an ethereal journey into the heart of Africa’s musical gift.
