Nigerian-born, London-based singer Obongjayar has shared a new single, ‘Message in a Hammer’, the lead offering from his upcoming debut album. In a statement, Obongjayar said the song 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.” It comes with an accompanying video directed by Rollo Jackson and influenced by late ’90s gangster films. Check it out below.
Obongjayar released his Which Way Is Forward? EP in early 2020 and teamed up with Afrobeats producer Sarz on the Sweetness EP earlier this year. More recently, he made a guest appearance on Little Simz’s Sometimes I Might Be Introvert and Pa Salieu’s ‘Style & Fashion’
