Coming through fiercely with no permission required, Tomi Obanure is a super-talented drill rapper based in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja. With a growing discography, Tomi introduced himself to the rap and drill scene in 2020 with his 5 track EP titled ‘No Rest For The Wicked.’ Each track is laced with witty lyrics delivered brilliantly and every play is an invitation to experience Tomi’s genius.
He dropped two statement-making visuals to accompany the two singles he released in 2022 titled ‘Midnight’ and ‘Heavy Hitta Freestyle.’ Both are a part of the project called ‘I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead.’ The name is an affirmation of his hard work, dream, and determination as a hip-hop artist. If anything made you question whether this prolific driller is here to stay, you got your answer right there. Tomi raised the bar for what to expect from him with this raw and ruthless storytelling colored in black and white.
There’s excitement in the air as we anticipate Tomi’s new album coming this year, 2023, titled ‘WICKED AS EVER.’ Taking Grim and Drill to a new level in a country known for Afrobeat is a feat Tomi is set to excel at.
