Notion Magazine Features New Kemuel Single ‘POLO’

After rounding out 2023 with the massive success of ‘Alone’, which amassed over a million global streams in less than a month, and has seen the pop riser garner rave reviews and critical acclaim from Clash Magazine, Notion, and Earmilk, among others, fast-rising Nigerian artist, producer, and songwriter KEMUEL is excited to go again with his brand new single titled ‘POLO’, as featured in Notion Magazine. This new offering serves as the second and final teaser before Kemuel releases CLOUDS – his sophomore EP arriving in April as the long-awaited and highly anticipated follow-up to his breakout project ESCAPE.

Written and composed by Kemuel, with his producer alter ego Wondah taking control behind the boards, ‘POLO’ is a glorious pop and amapiano fusion track driven by Kemuel’s percussion and bass guitar arrangements, sprinkled frequently with lush synths and bass. The track is further held together beautifully by Kemuel’s infectious melodies and captivating songwriting. Inspired by a lengthy conversation with his crush on the day that he wrote the song, ‘POLO’ sees Kemuel wearing his heart on his sleeves and seeking a genuine connection with his leading lady in heartfelt and resonant fashion.

Amidst the vibrant tapestry of Africa’s musical evolution that’s captivating a worldwide audience, Kemuel emerges from Port Harcourt as a luminous figure of innate talent and creativity. Blending R&B, pop, and afrobeats together, he weaves narratives within his songs, marked by enthralling melodies that invite listeners into a rich musical universe. More than embodying the Nigerian spirit, Kemuel enriches it, incorporating the diverse cultural influences of his Rivers state origins. His artistry goes beyond mere performance to create an experiential realm where listeners find comfort, companionship, and tranquillity, urging them to not just listen but deeply connect with each strain of melody and emotion.

Kemuel’s musical journey commenced at the tender age of 13 within the vibrant atmosphere of his local church choir, where he honed his skills on the piano, bass guitar, and drums. His passion extended beyond music, leading him to explore the realm of visual arts, culminating in a Fine Art and Design degree from the University of Port Harcourt. His debut EP heralded the arrival of an exciting new voice in global music, a status further cemented by his collaborations with the likes of Olamide and DJ Spinall. With his second EP on the horizon, Kemuel has already garnered over 10 million plays online, and earned accolades from MTV Base, BBC 1Xtra, TRACE, Apple Music, and Spotify, among others.
