Obiwon berths sophomore

It was an evening of quality music, dance and superlative entertainment as popular Nigerian act, Obiora Obiwon performed fresh tunes at the launch of his anticipated sophomore album, “The Rebirth”.

The album soon revealed itself to be an eclectic mix of contemporary gospel and r’n’b as earlier indicated by the artiste. In 2008, Obiwon made several references to a deep spiritual experience and the addition of gospel themes to his style.


Upbeat ballad and first single off the album “Obi Mu O” also rose in 2009 to become one of year’s favourite hits.

Guest artistes, Alibaba and Yaw had the audience reeling in laughter with their comedic lines while Segun Obe, Rooftop MCs, Jahdiel, Eva, Kani, and Bracket of “Yori Yori” fame also ensured it was a memorable musical night for the celebrities and fans in attendance.

Guests also went home with free copies of the album which finally hit stores in Nigeria, yesterday, Friday October 2, via Obaino Music Distribution.

A visibly excited Obiwon had this to say: “We’re elated having come thus far. We really took our time to do this (the album) and we’re hoping the fans appreciate it for the excellence we’ve strived to achieve. We’re now off to promote the album and do the videos.”
