Biography

Who is OBEHI?

Truly original and inspirational singer/songwriters don’t come around too often in today’s current musical climate, which is why Obehi, the UK’s brightest R&B star-in-the-making is a unique talent.

After moving to Scotland from Nigeria as a child Obehi forged her cultural identity through exploring her love of soul and pop music. Prior to pursuing her music career, Obehi studied electronic and electrical engineering and lived a double life whilst following her musical path.

As the singer/songwriter Obehi herself says “music is part of me and who I am”. Early influences on Obehi’s moving and melancholic style range from the inimitable Luther Vandross to the magnificent Marvin Gaye and Sam Cooke.

Having grown up with such rich musical influences Obehi building her own blossoming career in music with her own R&B/pop crossover of soaring, soulful love songs, something that she has already garnered critical acclaim for with her first release the Everything EP.

Her childhood idols, along with more contemporary influences like Ashanti, Beyoncé, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera have fused together to produce Obehi’s distinctively original sound, a contemporary combination of pop, R&B and soul. The result is a confident yet delicate approach which draws on the passion and power of soul and the catchy, confidence of pop.
