“Obaro Ejimiwe returns with a timely plea for compassion to a soundscape of menace and claustrophobia” – The Sunday Times
Ghostpoet – Obaro Ejimiwe has unveiled the video for latest track Immigrant Boogie. The song, the first to emerge from recent studio sessions is “a first person account of a difficult journey across borders, that asks the listener to question how they would feel in a similar situation.”
Directed by Zhang + Knight, the video draws the viewer into a dystopian, post-apocalyptic world, where a lone man laden with personal effects runs from an unknown threat. His belongings are jettisoned as he journeys in a state of increasing despair. The strangely alien landscape and narrative is uncomfortably familiar somehow and strikes a nerve for all those aware of the recent displacement crisis.
Ghostpoet is touring the United Kingdom and Ireland in October.
