Inspired by Lil Wayne, Bella’s style of rap isn’t what you see every other day in the Naija music scene. Mabel “Bella” Alubo, a new school musician, signed in December of 2016 to Tinny Entertainment (First Lady). She “prefers” to be called a “rapper” because, according to her, gender isn’t used to describe women in other fields and also because she doesn’t want to deal with the burden of such a stereotype. One who detests being addressed as a ‘female rapper’.
She drops a dope cover to Cardi B’s smash hit, Bodak Yellow; and she’s titled hers ‘Cold Black Bello’. The pidgin flow, lyrics are just smooth. Shot the video also and it was shot by Bash’Em and features cameos from another label mate, Dapo Tuburna and new school cats – AT, Cleo-Thelma, Attitude, Boybreed, Egarboi and LA.
Bella actually hit the limelight when she got signed to Tinny Entertainment in December and then released her first official single, Radio which featured label mate, Ycee.
She brings back the hiphop thrill from her previously released EPs, on this cover.
