The question making rounds around Social Media circles lately has been “Where is Obiwon?”. Finally, fans received an answer on the 9th of June 2013, the 36th birthday of the r’n’b-singer-turned-urban-gospel-minister, Obiora Obiwon.
In response to enthusiasts and lovers of his music, Obiwon returns as recording artiste with a techno-infused hip-hop song entitled “Testify”. On the song he elicits the help of gospel music elite, Mike Abdul of the Midnight Crew, who adds a fuji-flavoured cameo to the already infectious groove. On the production, Obiora continues to synergize with Phat-E – credited with “Obi Mu O” the original version and the remix and the inspirational “F.a.t.h.e.r 2.0” single. The result is an undeniable jam filled with zest and celebration over strongly spirited but yet simple faith-based lyrics.
Obiwon who announced a full-time gospel music ministry five years ago in 2008 has steadily impacted the gospel music and Christian events scene nationwide with his “The Rebirth Band” and continues to play roles in the wedding events scene, roles not often showcased in mainstream media.
Expect to hear much more from Obiwon in coming weeks and months as he finalizes a long overdue third album.
