Brisbane emcee Kavelli has been solidly building a following for several years now, accumulating impressive numbers across both streaming services and his socials. However 2020 feels different for him. It’s safe to say, Kavelli has arrived.
The Nigerian born artist is a multi-talented creative; writing, performing, producing and now directing in the video for latest single ‘Stylebender’. Shot and edited by QLD outfit 8th Films, the clip touches on themes of pride, drive and fearlessness in an ode to fellow Nigerian and current defending UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya.
‘Stylebender’ is one to turn up to. It’s a moment of empowerment for Kavelli, showcasing his versatile flows over booming 808 production, distinctly and intentionally drawing parallels with Adesanya inside and outside the ring – a proud performer of the highest standard.
“Get the boot, if you step on my name – Get you hit, Stylebender” – Kavelli isn’t here to make friends, he’s here to send a message; one that’s bold, punchy and it’s impossible to ignore.
