Nigerian born Birmingham based artist, $tevo has a diverse sound due to his Hip-Hop, Pop, and Afro-Beat background and the influence of a wide range of musicians. Following the release of his debut mixtape titled Untold Stories, a ten-track compilation of some of his favorite songs birthed during the lockdown, $tevo returns with Duzzy Lee on Silver And Gold, to pen down his two cents on the current state of his home country, Nigeria.
Over a piano-driven instrumental that tugs on the hearts of his listeners with its serenity and mournful undertones, the synergetic duo speaks on the social injustices happening in Nigeria with an aim of shedding more light on the already publicized impunity ongoing. $tevo powers the verses with a highly personal pov articulated as breezy raps, leaving the catchy hook and chorus to Duzzy Lee whose nasal vocalization goes a long way in aiding an easy passage of their message.
Silver And Gold end with a sample of #EndSars protesters chanting the now-famous words “end sars, end police brutality”.
