Nigerian-born, London-based musician/singer/songwriter Steven Umoh creates haunting but intense sounds under the Obongjayar moniker, drawing on inspiration from both his Nigerian upbringing and futuristic hip-hop and electronic influences.

Debut album Some Nights I Dream of Doors was released in May of 2022. The album was the boldest representation of Obongjayar’s multi-genre sound to date, collecting elements of rap production, electronics, Afrobeat rhythms, spoken word performances, and other disparate sounds.
