“Funbi” releases his debut project, a full length EP aptly titled “Serenade”. Singing to an audience of the women in his life, Funbi weaves in and out of love and lustful experiences with each song–from sensual, to genuine, adventurous and deeply touching.
“It’s an ode to African women,” Funbi said. “They’re intelligent, they’re beautiful, they’re complex. The project is about how they have affected my life in real and lasting ways. I think many people can resonate with that.”
He enlists powerhouse singers Seyi Shay and Efya for rousing duets, marking the only features on the project. “Serenade”also showcases of the artful production of Spax and IKON, two of Nigeria’s best producers.
Funbi is, at his best, a versatile singer and storyteller whose essence captures the new Nigerian sound: drawing from the past, highlighting the present, and pushing the boundaries for the future of unconfined African music.
The EP “Serenade” is available on all digital platforms. Listen to the headline single “Serenade below”
