About Tobe Nwigwe
Tobe Nwigwe is an enigma. The lyrics and tone of his music tell the story of a difficult upbringing as a first-generation-Nigerian kid in the Alief neighborhood of Houston, Texas. Tobe has a singular goal in life: “to make purpose popular.” Through tremendous consistency and execution, Tobe’s music and influence has infiltrated pop culture. It’s positive promises spread across North America through two multi-city tours, a groundbreaking performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk, made its way onto gaming platforms MLB and NBA 2K20, playlists curated by former First Lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama, and Beyoncé and a host of festivals, concerts, blogs and fashion magazines. Tobe’s message has attracted fans across the globe, including culture heavy-weights: Erykah Badu, Sway Calloway, Jill Scott, and Dave Chappelle.
