With a handful of EPs under her belt, burgeoning British/Nigerian singer/songwriter Bellah has proven why she is at the forefront of the UK R&B industry. Bellah possesses that elusive blend of industry know-how and relatability thanks to lyrics that make you feel like you’re conversing with your best buddy and her knack for crafting a killer hook.
Bellah has been moving forward admirably. The Nigerian-born singer-songwriter from North London has a special knack for gliding over classic R&B instrumentals and captivating audiences. In her third and most recent piece, Adultsville, Bellah explores what it means to evolve from a girl to a woman in the modern world. It’s the inner page of a journal that, in looking back on her life and work as a whole, she describes as the “most transforming, traumatic, eye-opening, beautiful, and awful chapter of my life.”
With a style that combines traditional R&B with an Afro influence, Bellah’s very likable and sincere lyricism shines just as brightly as her lovely voice. Her British-Nigerian ancestry lends an Afro influence to that unfiltered R&B, a sound that has been praised by Complex and BBC 1Xtra, which named her first hit their Track Of The Week.
