With a newly released four-track EP, the fast-growing duo, Joshua and Victor Onodu, aka Shuavy, have made a statement about their talent as they continue to climb the ranks of the music industry.
As they seem to be capturing the attention of music enthusiasts, the duo revealed that it was only a matter of time before their music started to garner widespread attention because it is their passion, not their business.
According to them, the mission is to illuminate the music industry with their music and videos while they implement plans to take over.
“Making music is what we have been doing since our childhood. I remember that my brother and I would always gather our brothers at night and mimic them with songs by popular artists like D’banj, P-Square and 2face. They would laugh and cheer us on. We perform break dance and stunts at various college shows. So sooner or later we had the belief that the great opportunity would come. “
Speaking about his new EP, “Space Lane”, Shuavy expressed his enthusiasm for the project and how it makes them unique in the world of Afrobeats.
“There is no way you will listen to our EP and not realize that we sing a different form of Afrobeats. We take the time to test what everyone does and create a niche for ourselves. It is a style that should take us far. Furthermore, the acceptance has been good. We still expect more from him, but he is currently doing well. One of the singles, ‘We dey’, seems to be a fan favorite. “
Considering that the industry has witnessed many duos eventually breaking up, the latest being the Okoye brothers, popular as P-Square, the Onodu believe theirs would be different.
“To be honest, we have had this conversation with each other many times. I don’t know what kind of relationship those duos had, but I’m sure nothing can separate my brother and me. We’ve come a long way and I can’t even imagine it. We were saddened to see P-Square break up, ”added Joshua.
With the industry very competitive and often left on the sidelines, the Onodu brothers believe they have what it takes to emerge as international stars.
“Many artists became famous when they were young. So in the nearest future, we believe that we will also be there and we are working and praying a lot for it. We also want to bring Afrobeats globally and support the movement. So we really want to help young artists like us make waves in the industry, ”added Shuavy.
