SPOTLIGHT
Obongjayar: Message In A Hammer
Nigerian-born, London-based artist Obongjayar has released a series of singles and EP’s over the last two years including recent collaborations with Sarz, Little Simz, and Pa Salieu ratcheting up the intrigue and expectations for a debut album. This week he confirmed a full length with a release date and title TBA. The first single “Message In A Hammer” is out now, and it’s a killer mix of Afrobeat, soul, and jittery electronics, with Obongjayar’s unique vocal stylings sitting on top of the ride. Obongjayar said the track is “about fight, and fighting against the powers that take and steal and rob from us, and calling them by their name—thieves and murderers.” Listen on this week’s playlist and watch the wicked Rollo Jackson-directed gangland-styled video starring Obongjayar as a mistreated driver looking for revenge against the gang leader, below.
