OBT, an acronym for Omo Baba Teacher (Yoruba for The Teacher’s child), is a Nigerian singer, song-writer, music producer and performer. Born February 4, 1995, OBT (real name, Adigun Samson Adeyinka), was raised on a combination of Fuji, Juju, Highlife and Gospel music. At the age of twelve he taught himself to play the drums and over the years has mastered his creativity.
Influenced by the music and performances of musicians that includes Brymo, 2Face and King Sunny Ade, OBT is fully prepared for the industry as he recently dropped his official single titled ‘Dance’ as produced mixed and mastered by South African based producer, Dr. Jazz.
‘Dance’ a feel good song that reminds people how important it is, especially in difficult times to dance and be merry. The song is an absolute breath of fresh air and a break from the usual sound clouding the Nigerian airwaves.
In chat with Life &Times, OBT disclosed that he is on the move to change the face of music in the industry with the blend of afro pop and highlife tunes.
