After achieving widespread mainstream success within the Nigerian music industry, Funbi disappeared from the mainstream to look inward and go on a journey of self-discovery. Now, the acclaimed Nigerian R&B singer and songwriter is back with a new perspective and a highly anticipated new single produced by hitmaker and long-time collaborator Spax (Tems’ hit “Damages”).
Speaking on the new music, Funbi shares, “I have evolved, I am now more accepting of my emotions, more honest about my feelings and not ashamed about it. I’m not trying to hide anything anymore, I’m taking the consequences as they come, just in a space where I am free. Keeping these emotions in is negative, you become congested and uncomfortable, it's time to open up.”
When Funbi retreated from the mainstream music scene in 2018 after releasing his debut EP Serenade — a sensual and succinct EP that focused on his relationships with the women in his life — no one knew where he had gone or when he’d return to music — himself included. It wasn’t until he had been separated from music and felt its absence that he re-discovered his love for making music and knew that he’d never want to lose that connection again.
Now, 2021 is seeing the return of an evolved and driven Funbi. His new single revolve around the themes of love, lust, and longing for connections; and will give his dedicated fans insight to where Funbi has been for the past 2 years.
