After a sudden move from Nigeria to Canada at the age of 9, the following years were filled with the challenges of immigration, isolation, & severe anxiety.
TOBi turned an obsession with music, into a life-saving tool and hasn't looked back since. Caught between two worlds, he found solace in his rhyme books and the songwriting process, all the while pursuing his academic goals. He completed a degree in biology and since then has released the "FYi" EP in 2016, with other projects in the works. His inspirations make occasional glimpses in his music, citing influences such as Andre 3000, Frank Ocean, Nas and D'Angelo. In 2017, TOBi's demo "Hidden Fences", written about the multi-dimensional effects of gentrification in the city, was placed on the Season 2 finale of HBO's 'Insecure'.
