Produced by Lloyd Hinshelwood, who has previously worked with the likes of Mabel, Andreya Triana, and M.O, and co-written by Ekanem and Alba (Robin Hannibal, Joel Compass, Linguistics), ‘FADIN’ is a rich and expansive bass guitar and piano-led soul record, which kicks off with a sparse slow-building opening, before exploding into a resounding musical affair that has Ekanem addressing a toxic relationship, and the feeling of loving someone that doesn’t love you the same way.

Held together by a glorious combination of raspy soulful tones, electrifying acoustic sensibilities, captivating storytelling, and enchanting vocals, Nia Ekanem describes his music as ‘New Soul’.

Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘FADIN’, Nia Ekanem says, the song was inspired by a conversation with Lloyd (producer) & Alba (songwriter), about our past relationships, sharing our experiences and the different emotions it brings out of you. We wanted to be as transparent and honest as possible on this song, with me not being afraid to show emotions and say how I feel. It helped that Alba was involved in writing the song, because she was able to really get that out of me”.
