This soul-influenced MC – born Obaro Ejimiwe  – released his stunning, list-of-2011-frequenting debut long player, Peanut Butter Blues And Melancholy Jam, last year and toured relentlessly, supporting the likes of Metronomy and Jamie Woon. A Mercury nom followed too, which is not a bad run for your first record.
