Omo is the debut EP by Toronto based, Nigerian artist tadé. It is Yoruba and can be directly translated to ‘Child’. Conceptually, it is a 4-song project that touches on life, love, family and growth. Embedded within the EP is a story of a boy coming of age, from birth to discovering love, his idea of life and its meaning, and then building a family so he too can pass down the knowledge he has picked up on – both from the teachings of his mother and life. Sonically, the EP combines elements of hip-hop, world music, afro music and r&b creating a truly unique sound. The EP also mirrors tadé musical growth as he took on production & mixing duties for the first time in his short musical career.
