Nigerian born Ghana-based duo, ENE YATT, are now signed to Amsterdam-based record label, Walboomers Music. Deal was brokered by their representative at World Arts Agency in Johannesburg on the 15th of July, 2021, for the release of their new single, Uwa (with visuals directed by Onyeka Nwelue) and forthcoming album, A Journey to Accra.
Walboomers Music was founded in 1996 by Marc Walboomers. The company established itself as a respectable record company, music publisher and distributor for mainly Reggae, Latin, World, Hip Hop and Soul Music in the first 10 years.
The duo of ENE Yatt, Nigerian-born Afropop crooners establishing their presence from Accra amid the coronavirus pandemic, is testament to that.
“Well, Nigeria happens to be home because that is where we are from, but aside that being the case we’ve always had that Ghana connect one way or the other so that basically made us drawn to both countries when it comes to our music and its journey.”
ENE Yatt is composed of two brothers. Born Elvis Pamo Owugah and Richard Ebi Owugah in Rivers State, they attended Immaculate Comprehensive College, Omoku, before moving to Ghana after their secondary school days. They have lived in Ghana ever since.
Their music career sputtered to a start in a dance group (Exodus Dancers) from secondary school, leading to the formation of a three-man group then known as ‘The Bounce’. A friend, Justice Eke (Lil Gizzy) completed the trio. The group split when the brothers moved to Ghana in 2009. ENE Yatt came to being in 2011. The name is an acronym for Evil Never Ends (ENE) and You Are The Truth (YATT).
Their new single, Uwa, is releasing on July 22nd, 2021.
