AML Music: ‘Sunmomi’ by Temisan (Audio)

I dig this music from Temisan titled Sunmomi. We have  heard this beat that is synonymous with contemporary Nigerian music but Temisan’s vocals do stand out. The lyrics could be a tad stronger but overall, good effort. Check on it.

“Temisan (born Tonnie Temisan Francis) is a singer, songwriter, musician and performer who shows no hesitation letting the characters he is trying to portray seep into his music and the result is an ideology that modern music is more than just a rhythm. It is also a combination of catchy hooks, body-moving synths and of course unforgettable vocals and lyrics.

Winner of the Malta Guinness 2008 dance contest with a crew he was part of called Soul Quest, Temisan maintains that his main foray into singing rather than dance actually occurred almost like a fluke. After successful practice writing and recording sessions under Kaffy (P Square, Guinness Book Records, Malta Guinness Dance Contest) while temping at her dance school in Lagos, Temisan deciding it was time for serious soul searching embarked on a road trip to Abuja. Abuja. This was the moment affirmation hit for the singer and the wheels were set in motion.
He draws a lot of inspiration from his mum and has gained a lot of respect for women through her. His influences include Angelique Kidjo, Aaliyah, Boyz II Men, Youssu N Dour, Akon, Fallypupa and 2face.”
