London-based artist Obongjayar has shared a video for a new song called “Message in a Hammer,” the first track from his forthcoming debut album. Rollo Jackson directed the visual, a miniature gangland drama starring Obongjayar as a driver seeking vengeance. Check it out below. In a press release, Obongjayar said the track is “about fight, and fighting against the powers that take and steal and rob from us, and calling them by their name—thieves and murderers.” 

After releasing his EP Which Way Is Forward? in early 2020, he made an appearance on Griggs’ surprise mixtape Now or Never later in the year. He recently joined Afrobeats producer Sarz for the collaborative EP Sweetness in August. The title and release date of his debut are yet to be announced.
