Introducing: Avelino

  • Words: Seth Pereira

In an era that’s been inundated with predictable hooks and verses with about as much lyrical complexity as a children’s nursery rhyme, it’s important to shed light on the artists going against the grain – such as Avelino.

Hailing from Tottenham, North London, Avelino has been putting in a lot of hard work since the release of his debut mixtape Iconic Ambition.  The lead track from the mixtape (No Comment) even featured multi MOBO award winner Stormzy and the Newcomer of the year MOBO nominee Bonkaz. If Avelino is keeping this sort of company he must surely be earmarked for a stratospheric rise.

Aside from his mixtape, Avelino has been stamping his mark all over the UK’s leading urban music outlets and has had several music videos featured on Link Up TV which have garnered well over half a million views. Avelino’s music has also appeared on GRM Daily where he covered popular Bryson Tiller Song Sorry Not Sorry and can be seen showcasing his lyrical prowess on their popular Youtube series Daily Duppy.

Now Avelino has teamed up with fellow rapper Wretch 32 for brand new album ‘Young Fire Old Flame’ The Mixtape, which is receiving stellar reviews. Check out the North London wordsmith in his latest lyrical onslaught below!
