2011 has been an eventful year for young Obaro Emijiwe. Recently migrated from the capital city of the West Midlands – Coventry – to the southerly climes of his native London, Ghostpoet has made his mark on 2011 with the excellent debut LP “Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam” on Brownswood records.
Its series of off-kilter, loopy electronic ditties blessed with his delightfully rambling musings on modern life have gained the soft-spoken Obaro an impressive slew of accolades culminating with his nomination for a Mercury Prize Award, a slot on ‘Later… with Jools Holland’ and a sold out show at Scala.
Set around the release date for his new single which will serve as a bridge between his sophomore effort and a brand new album coming out later in 2012, this will be an excellent chance to catch a glimpse of this rising star at the majestic surroundings of KOKO.
