Pre Order: Obongjayar - Some Nights I Dream Of Doors CD Out May 13th 2022

Product Description
€15.00
Maximum quantity available reached.

Produced by long-time collaborator Barney Lister (the pair recently won an Ivor Novello
award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically for previous EP track "God's Own Children") "Try"
is the opening track to Obongjayar's debut album "Some Nights I Dream of Doors" and its
latest single.


Steven Umoh grew up in Calabar, Nigeria. He was raised by his grandmother; his mother had
moved to the UK to escape Umoh's father, who was abusive. Early in his life, he primarily
listened to bootleg rap, particularly Eminem, Usher, Nelly, Snoop Dogg and Ciara. Umoh
moved to live with his mother in England at the age of 17, but stayed active in the Nigerian
music scene. He grew up a devoutly religious Christian, but became less so after he
attended university in Norwich. In college he sang primarily in an American accent,
influenced by his childhood spent listening to American hip hop music, but he transitioned
to singing in his natural Nigerian-British accent before embarking on his professional career.
Obongjayar's music has been called "hard to describe", incorporating elements of afrobeat,
spoken word, soul, and electronic music. His lyrics incorporate spiritual overtones, although
they are not readily identifiable with any specific religious tradition. A unifying feature of all of
Obongjayar's music is his very deep voice, which slides between rapping, singing, and
spoken word
