Nigerian-born, London-based Azekel has been an unwavering source of heart-melting songwriting for the better part of a decade, cleverly bridging the gap between the classic soul canon and more modern, futuristic R&B takes.
The gifted vocalist’s latest single, “Dupé”, takes that even further, pairing his cloud-grazing vocals against relaxed grooves and a nimble bass line produced by Sons Of Sonix. The audio dropped late last month and now Azekel is back with some fittingly intimate visuals.
In the crisply-shot video, directed by Ade O Adesina, we see our silky-voiced hero in a dimly-lit club before he finds himself stepping down from the stage, drawn towards a woman who has caught his eye. This is one love story that you’ll want to see play out.
