Never in the history of time has there been a soul or specter even a fraction as entertaining as Ghostpoet. And while not an actual ghost, Ghostpoet’s songs certainly possess a distinctly haunting and captivating character that has helped him build a huge and growing fan base across the UK and beyond. Following a sold out show in Village Underground in May, Ghostpoet aka Obaro Ejimiwe returns to the Big Smoke, playing at Hackney Empire this Thursday, 24th October.
With lyrics that would put any rhyming dictionary to shame, his songs display a mastery of not just the English Language but human emotions, trials and tribulations, too – from the gut wrenching to the banal. Following the success of his debut album, “Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam”, Ghostpoet dropped his sophomore album, “Some Say I So I Say Light” earlier this year to widespread acclaim. Get your hands on a copy if you haven’t already.
