Award winning UK Afrobeats singer, songwriter and dancer May7ven who is famously known by her hit single Ten Ten is riding sky high as her latest buzz single Hey Mr has just been playlisted by the popular UK mainstream radio station Choice FM.
This also makes her the only UK Afrobeats female artist to be playlisted on national radio in the UK.
May7ven took her career to another level by getting Afrobeats and African music to be noticed by a wider mainstream audience, and made history last year when her infectious monster single Ten Ten went straight to A-list on a UK mainstream radio station. She scooped up seven awards for the hot video as an independent artist.
Hey Mr is also one of the singles featured on DJ Abrantee’s Afrobeats: The Ultimate Collection album which also entered the top 20 on the UK iTunes. Her talent as an artist and performer has not gone unnoticed, drawing accolades and plaudits from all corners of the African music landscape; the latest of which comes from the Kokomaster himself Dbanj, who in his first interview of 2013 heaped praise on the female Afrobeats star confessing:
She’s a queen.
May7ven has also been billed on stage shows across the UK summer, kick starting her May7ven & Friends university and club tours from 26 April in Cardiff, Wales and ending it in London, Indigo2 on 28 August.
May7ven has certainly proved to us all why the Evening Standard crowned her “Queen of Afrobeats” in the first place, she won Best UK Afrobeats Artist award at the recent BEFFTA Awards.
