Whilst receiving recognition for his abilities as a promising young poet, following the release of this year’s ‘Childhood Culture’ EP, the emerging rapper showcases yet more of his distinctive capabilities here. Sunmola escalates from the smooth flow through ‘Never Forget We’re Here’ to a gritty MC delivery in the primal second section with effortless styleHis skills are deployed with wisdom and a depth of ability beyond his years, as this gripping production wrestles with complex aspects of youth and manhood.

The accompanying video was produced by Luke Logan, who was shortlisted at the Cannes Film Festival for Young Director of the Year. It serves as a striking visual display of his internal struggle and illustrates the lyrical theme flawlessly. In his own words, Tobi explains how the concept “plays on the cynical nature and inherent flaws of the human sense of self. It represents a man running away from who he is, but eventually accepting and taking pride in himself.”

Having moved from Nigeria to Manchester at the age of ten, Sunmola developed a passion for music at his local youth centre studio. Owing much of his early success to the tight-knit Manchester music community, regional support from the Metro andManchester Evening News helped identify his potential. Capping these successes with a performance at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in 2016, the up-and-comer is now hitting the studio with Joe HertzBipolar SunshineWretch 32 and Jacob Banks.

Distinctive and stimulating, self aware and fully informed – Tobi Sunmola injects a vital energy into his latest outside-the-box concept track, and further establishes his standing as a prominent story-telling voice from Manchester.
