London based talented music duo Haddy (Gambia) and Nkem (Nigeria) known as Emphirical deliver a catchy Afro-fusion single ‘Jealous me.’
“Emphirical (pronounced: EM-FEH-RI-CAL) is an eccentric R&B/POP female duo with powerful sounds tweaked with Afro fusion. The newly dubbed ‘next best thing from Africa’ continues to show promise and all the outstanding elements to grant them longevity and inevitable superstardom. One fan said, “I love these girls, they’re a crazy blend of Whitney Houston, Shania Twain, Beyonce and Lady Gaga rolled into two”.
Emphirical, Managed by Music Business Guru, Alex Yangs is the breath of fresh air that the R&B/POP music scene has been waiting for. The singer songwriters who are outstanding performers, dancers and fashionistas, have a hands-on approach enabling them to shine and present a very strong and unforgettable brand to fans and industry critics alike. The duo combines their love of music and sisterly bond based on strong foundation from early friendship, which has allowed the girls to continue to grow from strength to strength. The girls first met during a chemistry lesson six years ago and immediately formed a knot based on their love of singing. Their African heritage is a massive influence; allowing them to easily create the Afro fusion into their music genre.
The duo based in London, have performed at many prestigious events in the UK alongside some of Nigeria’s brightest including 9ice, Olu Maintain, Tony Tetuila and X-Project to name a few. With great collection of songs and performances under their belt, the sassy divas would be seen as a delicacy in the male dominated Nigerian Entertainment Industry.
