Eve-Yasmine - British Moroccan Soul/Pop music artist
Without any doubt Eve-Yasmine is one of the most beloved and famous young artists both in Morocco and in the UK. We at MBC Times have followed her steps since the very beginning and saw her amazing success in a very short amount of time. Today Eve-Yasmine is already a famous artist in many places such as London in the UK or Tangier in Morocco.
Eve-Yasmine is a 20 year old British Moroccan Soul/Pop music artist from London. In the short time she has been pursuing her music career she already has made noteworthy achievements including becoming a MOBO Awards UnSung Top 20 finalist, a BBC introducing artist, London Live's Playout Pitch artist of the week, performing with MTV EMA Award Winner Ahmed Soultan at his debut London show and also performing at Kensington Roof Gardens, Westfield London shopping mall and Spancirfest in Croatia with CK Gospel Choir. Her songs have also caught the attention of both radio stations in the UK and in Morocco with previous radio airplay on BBC Asian Network, Hit Radio and Westside FM.
She has just released her first cover of Gwen Stefani ft Eve 's 'Rich Girl' from her new 2015 acoustic project that features 'old skool' songs that she listened to growing up. The acoustic video which was filmed on the Black Magic camera was produced by Ombre Films and filmed in her local town Harrow.

" This is a project that I started back last year, it is completely self-funded and as an upcoming musician/young person you can understand that it has taken me a while and a lot of hard work for me to make this happen but here it is! " says Eve-Yasmine, "I'm really lucky that I found some amazing people to work with. Special thanks to my parents, grandparents, musicians - Harlano Weekes (who encouraged me to pursue this project even when I couldn't afford it), Kim Murray, Amanda Brown, Marco Briatore, Richard at Orpheus studios, Vassilis from Ombre Films, make-up artist Sadaf Khan and salon owner/hairdresser Aladdin Ayoub from Aladdin's Unisex in Harrow. "
"Me and my father Nour-eddine (who is from Tangier) came into the salon early with Aladdin to set up the space for the shoot - Aladdin already has amazing taste and it was easy to add the Middle Eastern flavour to his beautiful salon. I brought the Moroccan flag that British/Moroccan boxer Yassine El Maachi gave to me as I wanted to represent my roots in the video (I am very proud of my cultures.) I brought in little trinkets from Morocco and also my father's Moroccan lantern. I wanted to give an Eve-Yasmine twist to the song and really enjoyed the process of learning how to perform a cover in your own unique style. The shoot lasted one afternoon and even my lovely Mum was on set to guide me. It was so much fun and I can't wait to shoot the videos for the next covers.
