Lifesize Teddy Makes Dazzling Debut with Self-Titled EP: A Force to Reckon with
Mavin Records, Africa's premier record label, proudly introduces its newest sensation, Lifesize Teddy, as she unleashes her much-anticipated self-titled debut EP, accompanied by a captivating visual for the lead track 'Hypnotic'.
At just 23 years old, Lifesize Teddy is a force to be reckoned with, blending her rap, singing, and spoken word poetry talents into an electrifying debut that defies genres. Her EP showcases a bold, audacious statement of her artistic vision, presenting a multifaceted artist unafraid to delve into diverse sounds. With a musical canvas spanning Hip-Hop, Alternative R&B, Afro-pop, electronic, and alte influences, she weaves a tapestry of innovation.
In her confident delivery, Lifesize Teddy exudes an unshakable assurance that resonates across the EP's five tracks. Her debut single 'Hypnotic', produced by Andre Vibez (known for Rema, Ayra Starr, Omah Lay), is a fearless club anthem celebrating self-expression and embracing one's body and sexuality. It's a decadent blend of Afro-inspired Hip-Hop swagger infused with dancehall rhythms and Middle Eastern flair.
In her own words, Lifesize Teddy reflects on the project's significance: "I believe in my tongue, I prophesize a lot. I started calling myself a prophecy because the further I went in my life, the more I realized that what I am and what I do is meant to be."
Directed by Jyde Ajala (notable for works with Asake, CKay, Don Toliver), the video for 'Hypnotic' immerses viewers in a hedonistic atmosphere, portraying Teddy's rebellious attitude as she transforms a lackluster school party into a vibrant celebration. With supernatural undertones and futuristic aesthetics, the video captures Teddy's confident, fashion-forward persona.
Lifesize Teddy's journey to the limelight has been nurtured by Mavin Records, where she honed her skills through the artist development academy. Now, armed with a diverse skill set and a vibrant sound, she stands ready to join Mavin's star-studded roster alongside the likes of Rema, Ayra Starr, and Tiwa Savage.
Don Jazzy, Founder and CEO of Mavin Records, applauds Lifesize Teddy's growth: "Lifesize Teddy's journey from the Mavin Academy to the release of her debut EP is a testament to the power of mentorship and artist development. She embodies the spirit of the academy and serves as an inspiration to aspiring artists everywhere. I am excited for the future ahead of her!"
Lifesize Teddy's debut EP is more than music—it's a proclamation of her arrival as a visionary artist, ready to ignite a revolution in African music. With a sound that defies norms and a spirit that breaks boundaries, Lifesize Teddy is set to be the MC superstar Africa's been waiting for.
