About Elizabeth Ajao
“Black Betty is wholly effective in enticing our interest and making us crave more of Ajao’s skillful vocals and songwriting.” -24ourmusic
Born in Enfield, Elizabeth grew up in Hertfordshire to a house full of soul and pop records. She always loved to sing but was very shy for a long time and throughout her childhood she’d spend hours singing around the house, but rarely outside the home.
Her sister, a spoken word artist and poet inspired Elizabeth to start writing and put her in contact with hip hop producer Repeat Ophender, this gave Elizabeth the first taste of creating something herself and channeling thoughts and feelings into words and melody.
She had some fun trying out a few different sounds over the years in a girl group and a hip-hop band before deciding to branch out on her own. In 2012 she met Syze up, a London based producer best known for his 90’s hip-hop soul group ‘Desert Eagle Discs’. They experimented with mixtapes ‘Black Betty part 1 & 2’ a mix of original tracks and their own spin on some classics.
Elizabeth has found her place as a solo artist and continues to experiment and hone her craft. Keep your eyes peeled for more music and live performances.
