It’s hard not being excited enough to talk about an artist, who once fell off the radar after a big hit, some years back, and resurfaces with something worth listening to in 2K15. That artist is Lemar.
After 10 years since Lemar gave us this hit, ‘If there is any justice‘, that catapulted him to the neon light of the musical soul world, and after 3 years absence from the scene altogether, to take up a regular white-collar job, he returns with a new single titled ‘Love turned hate‘, taken from the album, the letter.
We have become so used to programmed sounds that live sounds are just more refreshing to the ear – Lemar
What better time to come back since it seems the world is in dire need of some damn good soulful singers like himself, Seal, Jaheim, Anthony Hamilton or Lauryn Hills, who’s got the magic to seduce and serenade our lustful souls. For now, Lemar Obika, UK’s own, Nigerian born soul/R&B Singer/songwriter, is our soul survival.
