Going from squats in Lyon to releasing his first album internationally, OBI is a real shooting star. Set to music inspired by rap, dancehall, and soul, this Nigerian singer’s songs reflect incredible freedom as they relay both the urgency and the hope in the world.
OBI was discovered in the Maurice Sève squat in Croix-Rousse, writing tunes imbued with an incredible freedom that stays with us. Self-taught and fighting against modern slavery, he speaks for all migrants while speaking out against injustice. His music carries lessons of courage and humility. With his first album distributed by Sony Music, OBI’s career is taking off like a shot.
A discovery you’ll want to keep close track of!
