Omosefe’s Uplifting New ‘Promises’


Omosefe is a veteran performer and recording artist who dropped his debut solo EP In Any Way in 2016, marking his return to the music world after an extended hiatus. That record introduced a multi-talented singer-songwriter from Nigeria with a genre-fluid sound. The world-traveling has been influenced by sounds from Italy to the United States.

Since his debut, Omosefe has released two EPs, a single, and the 2020 full-length album Why Pretend.  Working with his frequent collaborator, keyboardist Vincenzo ‘Lenzo’ Malafarina, the songwriter recruits from a roster of session musicians to bring his creations to life. He cites a diverse list of musical influences, from African icons like Fela Kuti and Youssou N’Dour to Western legends like Bruce Springsteen and Bob Marley.

“Promises” is the current single from Omosefe’s new EP Single Day, released worldwide via all major streaming services on May 17, 2024. The track opens on a syncopated percussive vibe as an ensemble of bass, drums, guitars, and keys lay down an infectious and funky Afrobeat-infused pop groove.  On the mic, the singer offers an inspirational celebration of life.
