Are you conversant with the Nigerian music industry? If your answer is yes, then you must have heard of Fefe Blanco the “uncommon” singer from Nigeria whose rise to the top is nothing short of exemplary especially in a male-dominated industry.
Efemena Olori Tracy also known as Fefe Blanco, is a Nigerian musician and entrepreneur. Her radio debut was a track titled “Aura” which was released on May 17th, 2013; it received rave reviews – including a nomination at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards for the Most Promising Act that same year.
Fefe Blanco was signed for a few years, to The Goretti Company & CAPital Hill Music Joint Venture, owned by renowned video director Clarence Peters and celebrated rapper illBLISS. She released several singles under this imprint, such as “Kilowi” and “Make Sense”, which also got good reviews.
Her big break came with the release of a song called “Baby Bad”, which scored over 1 million music streams within its first year of release. She embarked on a successful street tour across different cities in Nigeria. She has been featured on Jamaican talk radio station, Power 106 FM, on Dermot Hussey Show on Sirius XM, the MTN Yello Top 10 show, to mention a few. She also featured as a guest artist on Davido’s annual 30 billion concerts in 2019.
Her recently released “Uncommon” EP marks a new start for the independent artist, who is poised to break boundaries with her music. Uncommon EP is a highly rated body of work that dropped in 2020 and we would like to share this with the rest of the world. Listen to “Choco” the lead single off the EP here
