Nigerian Songbird, Nneka Teams Up With L.A. Rapper, Cobe Obeah on the Socially Conscious “True Colors”

Published

 on

Nneka is known for her political and socially conscious lyrics and songs. So, it was no surprise when I saw this collaboration with Los Angeles-based eMCee, Cobe Obeah on “True Colors”.

As the track itself, which was produced by Carlos P. and Tumi, is a landscape of dubstep-meets-orchestral skips and inflections, Cobe Obeah raps about the realisms of “being Black in USA” while Nneka acts as a placebo to “numb the pain”.

The song is slated for Cobe Obeah’s next mixtape, “song of the Starz 2: Dark Night”. Enjoy!
