From the UpperEnt team, wishing you all a happy new month full of blessings.

.

For the month of September, we kickoff our spotlight segment by focusing on Emmanuel Ajomale. Son of Nigerian gospel singer, Kunle Ajomale. I’m pretty sure we’re all curious who Emmanuel Ajomale is, yeah?

.

Well, guys meet Emmanuel Ajomale, popularly known as MANNYWELLZ. Won’t lie, I recently got plugged to MANNYWELLZ’s music listening to the radio in a ride; and I instantly fell in love with his sound.

.

Though he currently resides outside the country. He was born and raised in Nigerian till he was about 9, then he migrated to Bowie, Maryland. He is a multi instrumentalist who combines melody, raps, syncopation, structured chord progressions and hip hop beats. His sounds take influence from soul, rap and pop and his native west African root. His genre of forte is R&B and soul.

.

In 2014, he got signed with House studios, which gave ground for his debut EP, wellz. Followed by another Ep 4 year after(2018), SoulFro, a 7 track project. 2019, a three track project was also released “META” around the time he got featured by fellow Nigerian, wale, on the single “love and loyalty”.

.

In 2020, MANNYWELLZ dished out another project named “Mirage” which featured the likes of tems, wale & vanJess. Wellz, on gone on to work with the likes of Juls, Zamir, dndSection, Olayinka Ehi, Dave James,Owo to list a few.

.

Have to say, MANNYWELLZ was able to bring into the naij space with his 2022 record, “no closure” which is garning lots of airplay time and accompanied with a sleek video. Few days back, he released a two track project, “di do & no closure”.

.

It’s just a new ground opening for Wellz, and we’re all out for him and his sound.
