Mannywellz

Remember the name Mannywellz, born Emmanuel Ajomale, and he’s a Grammy award-winning Nigerian American-based R&B/Soul artist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist who just released his refreshingly new E.P: ‘The Mirage’.

The project produced by Mannywellz is a seven-tracked collection of uniquely different sounds, influenced by his father, who is also a musician, and other musical icons such as Asa, Bob Marley, Kanye West, Ryan Leslie, Timbaland, Fela Anikulakpo Kuti, and King Sunny Ade.

Mannywellz has three features on ‘Mirage‘. While ‘A million’ featuring Nigerian-American rapper, Wale is a more upbeat sound, ‘Floating’ featuring Nigerian R&B duo, VanJess, made up of sisters Ivana and Jessica Nwokike is a slower traditional sound that samples a myriad of instruments, making this track in particular, stand out.

”Peace” featuring Tems is the ultimate depiction of a sweet-sounding song. Mannywellz garnishes his use of falsetto in a jazzy sound that draws you in, particularly, if you’re one for easy unconventional sounds. Alternative R&B fresh talent, Tems lends her acutely distinct voice to bring together this track in a blended complementary dollop that’s just delicious to listen to.

Manny was on the PGM Radio Show last Wednesday to discuss the making of his project and the inspiration behind it.  Listen to the podcast here.

We at the PGM Club love this project and recommend it for your listening pleasure.
