Over the past one week, urban gospel act, Obiora Obiwon, has actively taken to Social Media with the promise to drop a single from his forthcoming album on his birthday -June 9, 2015.
The new single unveiled today, entitled “Floodgates (The New Overflow)”,marks the beginning of a new season for Obiora Obiwon as he clocks 38 years and officially begins to mark 10 years in the music industry. Earlier on today, the artiste reflected, “They say it’s my 38th birthday today, but it’s You My Lord I celebrate. Thank You for giving me You. Thank You for giving me the abundantand eternal life, joy, peace and fulfillment…”
Obiwon’s professional music career journey started 10 years ago in 2005 with the release of his first EP (short form album) entitled “Get ‘Em Up”. The EP’s lead single with the same title was remarkable for pioneering the use of 3-DimensionalAnimation in Nigerian music videos.In recent times Obiwon has been noted more for his unshaken resolve to impact the Nigerian gospel music scene, Nigerian youths and the entire society using the medium of his faith-based music. His transition from the secular Pop/R’n’Bgenre in 2008 was initially received with mixed reactions but has slowly gained acceptance in recent times, with Obiwon being featured in both faith-basedand secular events. Between 2014 and early 2015 alone, Obiwon clinched 7 gospel music industry awards for the stellar work on his 2013 album, Gold Water.
The release of new single“Floodgates (The New Overflow)”today gives a foretaste of the 10th anniversary projects, which will include an anniversary album aptly entitled “Floodgates: The Beginning Of The New Overflow”. On the fullalbum scheduled for a November release, Obiwon further mines his musical romance with long-time production collaborator Phat-E, credited for past Obiwon hits including “Hail My King”, “Obi Mu O”and the bulk of work on his last two albums. On the new single, Obiwon and Phat-E experiment with a mix of both conventional and unconventional sounds, as well as lyrics rife with symbolism.
The months ahead will see the artiste announcing the entire project plan for the commemoration of the anniversary, themed“Soli Deo Gloria” as an Anniversary Logo.

Following the tremendous acceptance of his cover of Di’Ja’s Awww released earlier this year which many had described as incredible, independent producer and singer-songwriter, Johnny Drille follows it up with a daring personal composition he calls ‘Love Don’t Lie’.
The uniquely talented mufti-instrumentalist ventures into very uncommon territory with ‘Love Don’t Lie’, exploring a mixture of Folk, Country and Afro. He gives us a kind of music we may have never heard before especially from around these parts.
The song produced by Johnny Drille himself in his home recording studio in Benin City explores themes of love from different perspectives which we all can relate to. Johnny Drille hopes to make a permanent statement in the Nigerian music industry.
