Ghanaian / UK-based hip hop producer and artist Kobi Onyame was the first artist I profiled (He Said, She Said – June 2009) when I started my WordPress blog. Part of what I wanted to do with this space was to share some of the music I came across, whether mainstream or not, and Kobi led the way. It has been over a year. He has continued to build, and so have I. In the time since I profiled him, he has, amongst other things, recorded a He Said, She Said remix with Sway (Sway Dcyphas Life – April 2010), performed at Glastonbury Festival, shared a bill with artists like De La Soul, Kanye West, Akon, Wiley, Sway, etc and opened for Wu-Tang Clan and Tinchy Stryder.
He is currently working on a new EP. The first single from this is Inner City Lights featuring Canadian hip hop great Saukrates and Sixpeopleaway, a Glaswegian singer/songwriter. I continue to be an admirer of his work. The single is available on iTunes
