Ep 15: Tomi Owo, Singer-Songwriter - Alternative Soul

Those African Chicks - Tomi Owo, Alternative Soul

Meet Tomi Owo, Nigerian Alternative Soul Singer-Songwriter.  Like many African creatives Tomi was in the corporate space when she could no longer ignore the strong call to creative art through music. In this episode, we talk about taking purposeful steps towards realizing ones’ dreams and how she was able to do this through consistency and planning with the help of her then aspiring producer brother. She walks us through her creative process – how she goes from idea to execution- and how global situations influence some her work .
