Nigerian-born, Northern California-based artist Igwe Aka is a promising talent who emanates prowess in all elements of his craft. He blends Alternative, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Soul, Latin, and African influences into his unique genre-bending style. Each new release from Igwe further elevates his ongoing progression. His latest offering, ‘DONT NEED A SOUL,’ taken off his upcoming project ‘OMG ITS AKA,’ is a testament to that truth. This record finds him confessing his love for someone he can’t live without. From his musical inception, Igwe has adamantly focused on cultivating his artistic identity. Igwe’s songwriting mediates on the realities of growing up in Northern California— navigating topics such as substance abuse, women, and emotions.
Accompanying the song is an equally impressive Cedric Crisologo-directed music video that is cinematography at its bare bones—bringing the record to life in an eye-catching fashion. The visuals on this one match the song’s vibe perfectly and help Igwe Aka’s smooth lyrics of lust pack an even harder punch.
