DOWNLOAD Obiwon _ Floodgates (The New Overflow) – Mp3
Obiora Obiwon was born Obiora Nwokolobia-Agu on 9 June 1977 in Enugu, Nigeria. A passion for music started developing as early as age 5, while singing along to Hip Hop and R’n’B records from his elder brother’s Audio Cassettes. His father, Sir Humphrey Nwokolobia-Agu was a folk and classical music composer and arranger from Eastern Nigeria. At age 15 he went on to songwriting, performing on the local streets and hang outs.
Obiwon’s debut album, Overture was released in 2006. The pressures of a budding music career soon led him to resign a banking job shortly afterwards. Overture produced the now classic Nigerian hit ballad “Onyinye”. He was nominated for three awards at 2007 Hip Hop World Awards, and won the Best Vocal Male Performance category. He was also honored as Nigeria’s Voice of the Decade (21st century) at the Nigeria Music Awards.
