Nigerian artiste, Obongjayar and talented music producer Sarz, release 4-track EP titled Sweetness.
The ‘Sweetness EP’ is the result of maverick artist Obongjayar joining forces with prolific producer SARZ for the first time to create a truly unique body of work that side-steps the many labels that have been used to describe the music the pair have previously made.
While both have roots grounded in the expansive and nuanced musical legacy of Nigeria, they’ve managed to transcend its borders to create a genre-bending EP that sees SARZ’s breezy production and Obongjayar sultry vocals complement each other to a tee – both structurally and melodically.
Known for his innovative production and composition work for the likes of Wizkid, Drake, Skepta, and Beyonce, Nigerian based SARZ has always been a key player in celebrated cross-cultural projects, but it was upon meeting Obongjayar in London last year that the pair set out to create something outside of their respective comfort zones.
Having previously released two EP’s, collaborated with the likes of Giggs, Kamasi Washington, and Danny Brown (and is at this very moment putting the finishing touches to his debut album) Obongjayar helped elevate the production with his seductive lyricism that journals the various stages of falling in love and establishing a relationship.
