Kobi Onyame's 'Call Out My Name' Video Ft. KOF

Ghanaian emcee/producer, Kobi Onyame, drops visuals for his single 'Call Out My Name' of his 2013-released album 'Glory.'

Ghanaian/UK-based emcee Kobi Onyame gets into his feelings in the video for the latest single off his 2013 sophomore album Glory. The slow-rocking "Call Out My Name" features soulful vocals from Liverpudlian crooner KOF on top of smooth sonic flows that play like a call to early 2000s R&B. The pair tag team on the slow-burning track, Onyame effortlessly flowing on the verses and KOF proclaiming “he’s tired of the faking” in his sultry voice as he takes the chorus. In the accompanying broken-hearted video from the UK's Drew John Barnes, Onyame attempts to sort out his significant other problems as shots cut between his pensive looks out of the car window and the two artists spilling their souls to the camera. All together "Call Out My Name" is an ultra-smooth, heartstrings-pulling composition. Watch the video below and purchase Glory on iTunes here.

These Women Are Breaking Boundaries In Nigeria's Creative Spaces

We speak to five women about their work and contributions to Nigerian society & creative spaces, despite their patriarchal nature.

"African women in general need to know that it's ok for them to be the way they are–to see the way they are as a strength, and to be liberated from fear and from silence" —Wangarĩ Muta Maathai

These words prompt one to think about how terrible a job the media does in sharing the stories of African women. As journalists, our work is based on telling African stories, and the gap of female stories is a very apparent one that needs filling. It's important to have an environment that appreciates fearless and unapologetic women chasing their dreams and breaking the boundaries before them.

We caught up with Toketemu Ohwovoriole, a multimedia storyteller & journalist; Solis, a singer, songwriter, poet, & muse; Lauretta Yemoja, a beauty artist and rapper/singer; Tiwa Pearl, a dancer and creative; and Oyinkansola Dada, an art curator and founder of art gallery Polartics, to talk about their careers.
