The singer, Obiwon announced this week the launch of his new album. Whilst he is not one of those on the lips of many, we’re still excited he’s back in business
The voice: Obiwon has an incredible voice that just uplifts. Whether its gospel, R n B, or just soul, that man just knows how to sing.
Look at those who approve: Just check out the caliber of artistes who have endorsed Goldwater: Frank Edwards, Jodie, Nikki Laoye, ID Cabasa, even Ali Baba, the Grand Commander of the Federal Republic, according to the event’s flier. There is certainly something going on.
It took 4 years: this album took a whooping 4 years to make, so it should be good, as far these things go. A talented singer who takes his craft seriously and takes four years making a new album? Count us in!
Goldwater works: Something about the name of the album just works. Gold Water symbolizes something awesome, rare, an amazing sight, something unexpected and unusual,” the singer said. “Water usually signifies cleansing, refreshing and restoration while gold signifies glory and elevation. A combination of both is pretty much the idea.”
We love us some urban gospel: Most gospel albums these days are quite dull and uninspiring, let’s face it. Obiwon always brings a different touch to that genre with his background in music. We can count on him to bring that spark back.
All the best with Sunday’s launch man!
