Nigerian-born, Toronto-based artist TOBi drops his new single and visualizer “Hoodwinked” via Same Plate Entertainment/RCA Records. This latest single, in addition to his previous singles “Flowers” and “She Loves Me”, will be on this forthcoming album coming soon. It was also announced that TOBi will be performing at Afrochella this December.
TOBi on his single “Hoodwinked”: “The character in the song is a child that upon witnessing issues in the home, it affects how he sees the world. He has a general distrust for systems and adults. What happens when the veil is lifted? As he gets older, he starts to see things for what they really are. He’s on a quest for truth. A very challenging quest. Process these complex emotions with big energy and set yourself free.”
Recently, TOBi released his elevated COLORS performance of “Flowers” and his song “Move” was featured on Netflix’s buzzing new movie release Do Revengestarring Camila Mendes (Riverdale) and Maya Hawke (Stranger Things). Prior to these recent singles, he released his Alex Goose-produced single and video “Before We Panic” featuring Mikky Ekko (written for Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, and Drake), which was a prelude to his forthcoming album. The artistic visual was shot and directed by Dom McLennon (BROCKHAMPTON) and Jeremy Grier.
