Elieliiscoming began composing songs whenever he had the chance. Scribbling the lyrics that came to his mind inside a notepad, he gradually built his songwriting skills and would sing the lyrics aloud to his hearing. Doing this activity continuously gave him the confidence that he could actually make music and succeed as an artist.
This led him to the studio in 2018, where he recorded his first single, Mama, at the age of fourteen. Despite his young age, he managed to put together a song with catchy lyrics and good flow.

He didn’t want to rush into the music scene and was taking time to refine his sound. During this period, he chose the moniker, ELove, to be his stage name.
Three years after recording his first song, he dropped his debut EP, Infatuated, in 2021. The three-track project, which he wrote, addressed love issues and the moods he was dealing with at the moment. Even though he was released as an indie artist, the project has done quite well, amassing hundreds of streams and downloads across streaming platforms.
