Nigerian-Canadian artist Asuquomo is back with another one. The rapper, musician, and overall visionary has been building the anticipation for his debut project DIOBU which is due out this year. Dropping off his OT Riddim mini-mixtape earlier this year, he's now returned with the first official single off of his forthcoming project.
Asuquomo dropped off his latest single, "Yahweh" this week to commemorate his birthday. His new song dives deeper into the world of afro-fusion afrobeat and highlife as he strays away from a more hip-hop influenced sound this time around.
"'Yahweh' is an African spiritual and was inspired by a place in the riverine south-south of Nigeria 'DIOBU,'" he told HNHH in an exclusive quote. "It’s sort of a comfort song that teaches patience."
Check out Asuquomo's new song, "Yahweh" below. Stay tuned for updates on DIOBU. Check out O.T. Riddim here.
I beat your drums, I speak your name
I take directions that you gave
I would like to put you in your place
'Cause I can't be used, I can't be bought
