It’s as if somebody crept into my brain when they shot the video to ‘Run Free,’ with its blighted beauty- I know that I find solace and can focus on life’s confusion when I flee to my own urban retreat.

As Tobi Sunmola’s silhouette lingers past street art and wires, he holds his own before distant city lights and outlined buildings, letting his mind and body run free as he grasps his thoughts in intrepid surroundings, illustrating his ancient mantra.

With airplay transmission across the BBC and from crowning glory at Adidas: Take The Stage, Tobi Sunmola’s has emerged as music’s most distinctively up and coming rap artist, with his alternative, yet stimulating chanting and captivating vocals. Originally from Nigeria, Tobi continues his self explorative journey in Manchester,  fast migrating across the UK.

Having worked with Wretch 32 and soul brother Jacob Banks, Tobi joins the alumni of music innovation. As his 2016 EP gains momentum, this new release has us excited for more uniquely formed narratives.

We’ll be darned if he hasn’t made his enemies sit up and listen with this one.

Vanessa Carby. You can usually find me at a festival (RAVER), somewhere where there's food (FOODIE) or more importantly by my laptop (BLOGGER.) With a huge passion for music, fashion and health, you'll find more often then none that I'm busy doing something to do with the 3. With a degree in Creative Writing and Journalism my brain is often away with the fairies or busy making up songs in my head.
