Indigenous Nigerian music duo, Umu Obiligbo who are renowned for their prowess for singing in the Igbo language have lent their voice to the #EndPoliceBrutality campaign in Nigeria with a song ‘Oga Police’ featuring fellow Igbo artiste and rapper, Zoro.
The song which is a track off their “Signature” album released on Tuesday 16 November 2020, tells the story similar to what most victims of police brutality have experienced.
In ‘Oga Police’, they reenact regular stop and search encounter with the police were phones are seized and checked, then followed by a physical assault with slaps and kicks. They afterward cry, asking for who they would complain such maltreatment to, thus directing this to the incapability of the federal government to solve this lingering problem.
The duo of Okpuozor and Akunwafor are sons of highlife star, Ajana Obiligbo, who was well known for his beautiful style of music, the source of the duo’s talents in music.
‘Signature’ album which has an animated image of the two brothers on the cover has 10 tracks and available across all digital platform where it has already hit over 100k streams on Boomplay and over 300k stream on Audiomack.
