NYC-based singer-songwriter Adedewe Adesola Victor, better known as Dewé, has just released his debut album titled Colors, via Alfeade records. Colors is home to a powerful collection of 10 songs exposing the rising star’s unique ability at merging Afrobeats to Afropop, R&b, Neo-Soul and World.
Born in Lagos, Nigeria, he rose to fame when he reached the finals of “The Voice: Nigeria.”
Influenced by Mali Music, John Legend, Fela, Sam Smith and Erykah Badu, Dewé ‘s artistic vision is to combine African influence to American-based genres of music.
Talking about his music, the NYC-based artist explains:
”I was able to put that fame into use by creating afro-alternative music, but at that time, I was still in the process of discovering my sound. I left my country because I felt I had so much in me to share with the world, but my environment was the limiting factor, so when I got the opportunity to move, I took it instantly. I was also lucky enough to move with my younger brother, who is the current CEO of Alfeade records. I believe the reason I didn’t stop making music is because music has always been Therapy to me, its impact in my life had always been greater than just pleasure, and when I realized I had the same power to share that gift with the world, I realized quickly It wasn’t an option for me, it is just timing.”
