Mr.WAKOBI / Press

“For an act that has R’n’B and Hip Hop as his major music influences, will one be wrong to say he relocated to Nigeria because he cannot face the talents in the United States? “It will be so wrong to think that way because in America today, I have gotten to a point that with a little push I will get a label to back me up. But I won’t do that because at the end of the day the entire music community in America is looking for new sounds and it is only something new and unique that will sell. That is why I said to myself, why get signed and start fighting to impress record executives? So I decided to put my brains to use by coming home to fuse home sounds with my own kind of music before hitting the road. In a nutshell I am here to give myself an edge over artistes in the United States as well as sell Nigeria to the world... ”

“Mr. Wakobi, as he will prefer being called, was born Timothy Myles. He is an American rapper, singer and song writer with an African appeal, born in Los Angeles, California, but raised in Jackson, Michigan. He comes from a musically inclined family on his mother’s side and began gaining interest in music around the age of eight. He wrote his first song, Good Bye, which was inspired by his parents and since then, a pen and pad have always been glued to his hands. Mr. Wakobi is currently working on his album with award winning producers, ID Cabasa and Cohbams. His music is always inspired by day-to-day encounters with life, while his mission is to put Nigerian music on the world map and the yet-to-be-titled album will be dropped in the first quarter of next year, both in Nigeria and the United States of America. ”

“Going with the real name, Timothy Myles Nwakobi, the American rapper, singer and a songwriter was born in Los Angeles, California. Though he was born in California, Nwakobi as he prefers, says his brand of music is packed with an African appeal. He comes from a music- inclined family on his mother's side. The Kanye West look-alike says he began gaining interest in music around the age of eight. He wrote his first song Good bye, inspired by his parents' divorce. Since then, a pen and pad has always been glued to his hands. Nwakobi is currently working on his album with award winning producers, ID Cabasa and Cobhams. Nwakobi says his music is always inspired by day to day encounters that occur in life, issues that everyday people experience. His coming back to Nigeria, he says, is with a mission to put Nigeria music on the global map and the yet untitled album will drop, according to him, in the first quarter of next year in Nigeria and in the United States of America. ”
