Akoma Onwuzuruigbo – “Messenger” single
“Your preacher man can’t save my soul. Eden’s gold can’t make me whole. Mama knew, Mama knew. Don’t shake that hand, don’t trust that man. Say it loud. Broken boy becomes a man. Broken man makes evil land.” – lyrics
Akoma Onwuzuruigbo’s music influences stem from Memphis blues and southern gospel to Ray Charles, James Brown, Nduka, Fela Kuti, and Michael Kiwanuka. His ‘Messenger’ single contains a forewarning narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and rich soul harmonies. Also, the nostalgic tune possesses guitar-driven instrumentation flavored with an alternative-soul vibration. Furthermore, “Messenger” serves as a wonderful introduction of what listeners can expect to hear on Akoma Onwuzuruigbo’s forthcoming EP.
“Don’t shake that hand, don’t trust that man.”
“The people that consume my music are longing to escape their present moment and ride off to the land of milk and soulful harmonies. None are more hopelessly enslaved than those that falsely believe they are free.” – Akoma Onwuzuruigbo explained
Akoma Onwuzuruigbo is ready to stand out in a seemingly overloaded industry. He joined a band in middle school as a reason to not have to go home. Since then, he has mastered playing the guitar, vocals, and overall production. Onwuzuruigbo makes music because it calls him. Also, he believes he’s destined to use this medium to contribute and breathe life back into generations of souls who are consciously or unconsciously withering away.
