Listen to Nissi’s debut project, ‘Ignite’

Spaceship Ent artist, Nissi Ogulu has just released her debut project, Ignite, with the aim to introduce all the layers of herself to the world. She describes the EP as her truth and the means for her to send her message across to the world, and upon first listen, she’s definitely got the job done.

Housing 7 tracks with a diverse range of sounds, Nissi had been whetting our appetites for the project with pre-released singles “Trouble”, “Tornado” and “Judi”, which gave us a good idea of the quality we should expect from her. In a brief conversation with The NATIVE, Nissi explained that everything she releases is like peeling back the layers of an onion, and she’s slowly introducing the whole world to her vast talent.

Throughout each song, Nissi sonically transports us through a sonic journey with the final destination being a connection to yourself. From the standout track, “Holiday”, where she sings in Fresh and is aiming for people who are listening to live as freely as she seems to be on the song, to the closing track “Babalawo” which aims to provide listeners with a firm rooting of who they are using Yoruba influences, the project is an encapsulation of her wide influences from all over the world.

Speaking to The NATIVE about her music, the singer said:

What’s the point of saying anything when it’s of no value? What’s your value add? For me, it’s not about the popular phrase of ‘I just caught a vibe’, the vibe is important, but like what are you saying? The real skill is being able to say something that people can understand and enjoy easily.

The best music is the kind you can feel, and you’re bound to feel something from Nissi’s debut project.
