Ibejii, the afro-soul artiste, has released a new single, “Gonto”. Out Friday, June 11, 2021, it is an afro-orchestral anthem that takes the listener on a journey which at once captures the casual insensitivity of the powerful but also the daring of a new generation of believers whose defeat of fear makes confrontation inevitable.
A reputed storyteller, poet, thinker and romantic, Ibejii’s essence is a fine balance of “Taiye Kehin”, the physical and the transcendent, time worn and timeless. Ibejii’s sound is a fine blend of African vibes and international sound; a unique blend of storytelling.
Coming off his as yet unannounced 5th project, “Gonto” recounts the victory of tiny masquerades in the face of a selfish big masquerade that will not let other voices rise. “Gonto” is Ibejii’s celebration of the ultimate victory of ordinary people over those who oppress and silence us.
