Nobody said chasing your dreams would be easy and Dremo’s “Nobody” off his ‘The Codename EP’ is a reminder of the tough challenges on the path to success. Over the somber piano led beat produced with haunting vocal samples and horn samples, Dremo gets emotional and introspective as he narrates his moving tale of strife, hustling as an artist coming out of Ibadan.
Though his intentions seem simple enough with the song’s encouraging message to other upcoming acts, struggle remains a dominant narrative even after he has become an established rapper. “Nobody” highlights how being a successful rapper only heals so much as Dremo explicitly reveals his pain behind closed doors; dealing with his mental health and losing a close friend. The music video Director K directs follows a younger Dremo who plays out the stories Dremo narrates while lurking in the shadows of his own memories.
