UK-Based Nigerian Rapper, Tobi Sunmola is one of the most exciting and unique young recording artists to emerge from the North West England rap/alternative scene to date. Originally from Nigeria, now living in Manchester, Tobi fuses thought-provoking lyrics with catchy chants and innovative production. He is fast gaining notoriety not only in the streets of Manchester but also throughout the UK – and for all the right reasons.
Tobi first caught the attention of the public with the release of his single “Hear Me” which was heavily supported by UK regional radio stations and newspapers throughout the North West, including Metro, Manchester Evening News and Unity Radio, to name but a few. Since then, Tobi has gone from strength to strength, getting airplay on BBC Radio 1xtra, BBC Radio 1 and Classic FM. After winning the “Adidas: Take the Stage” competition, Tobi Sunmola had the opportunity to make music with BET award winner and UK charttopper WRETCH 32, Jacob Banks and producer Wizzy Wow. Tobi also performed at the Royal Albert Hall earlier this year.
His latest work Childhood Culture EP which is available on soundcloud is explained by him as a sonic sounding project which is a fusion of his heritage and where he's come from to his present environment.
Tobi Sunmola’s ancient vocals and lyrical chants are that of a new culture; he is definitely one to watch.
So for the lovers of good music out there, Childhood Culture EP is a must listen.
We loved it... you'll most likely love it too.
