AbOriginal Music is proud to introduce “Omote”, the debut single from acoustic rock singer Ese Peters. Remember this name: Ese Peters. This Nigerian singer, guitarist and songwriter, from Warri, Delta State, is blessed with a vocal talent that could propel him to become the country’s next contemporary/rock music star. Well, he also describes himself as a dreamer. But one thing that he doesn’t need to dream about is how really good he can sing and perform love songs.
After last year’s release of his Acoustic EP, which includes the hit single, Gone (Wetin I Go Do), Peters has followed it up with another single; a beautiful composition titled “Omote”, a rock ballad that would leave any girl with a taste for good music swooning for love. Although written and performed in English, Omote is an Urhobo/Isoko word for ‘girl’.
And Omote does have a music soul, untainted by the rush of blood for commercial or mass appeal, as common with many new generation Nigerian artistes. Well, the thing is, this guy doesn’t come across like an uncommon artiste. While there are a lot of foreign influences on his songs, Peters’ evolving music constantly probes the depth of originality, in voice and delivery.
A rising star in the Nigerian alternative music scene, Ese is already familiar to music lovers courtesy his well-received singles “Gone (Wetin I Go Do?)”, “Stay With Me” and “Walk Away”, and his independent 2011 release, The Acoustic EP.
Signed to AbOriginal Music, Ese is currently putting the finishing touches to a new self-titled EP, scheduled for release later in the year. “Omote” is the first single from this project.
A love letter to the woman in his life, “Omote” is vintage Ese Peters— passionate, earnest lyrics delivered over soaring melodies. The result is a new anthem for lovers everywhere looking to tell that special someone how they truly feel.
