LAGOS, NIGERIA – Friday, August 9th, triple threat: singer, songwriter and producer Nonso Amadi releases his EP entitled Free.
Following his 2019 hit singles, “Emergency”and “Comfortable” featuring Kwesi Arthur, Free takes the listener on a sonic journey through Nonso’s conscious. From juggling life in the limelight, a space he never expected to be, he has to battle between pressure to conform and staying true to himself. Free in this sense is not just a space, but a state of mind. A space where the 23-year old Chemical Engineering graduate can create authentically.
The cool crooner currently based in Ontario, Canada finds himself at an intersection of musical blends, influenced by Afrobeats, Pop, Soul and R&B. Nonso creates a planet for himself and takes the listener into his orbit that is out of this world. Free immerses you in a vibe that flows seamlessly one song after another. The six-track project includes lyrics defining the simplicity and complexity of love. A sensual mood with a flurry of hard beats and soft melodies, all produced by Nonso. Free features Mr. Eazi and Simi.
Since Nonso’s breakout tune “Tonight” (2015) now at 5 million streams on YouTube, he continues to elevate, making him a pillar of reference in defining the fresh sounds coming from Nigeria, categorized as Afrofusion, NextGen and Alté, with a growing global audience taking interest. Between Spotify and Apple Music Nonso has amassed over 20 million streams.
Nonso is defining his own path and will kick-off his East African tour for Free EP at the following cities: ● August 24th, Kampala, Uganda, ● August 31st, Nairobi, Kenya
