SClusive Premiere: Obenewa - "Make.Believe" | Music Video

Obenewa B SoulCulture SClusive

After giving us the green light to premiere the audio a few weeks ago, West London-hailing Soul rising star Obenewa has today blessed us with the official video for "Make.Believe", the first track taken from her eagerly anticipated forthcoming EP B.

The EP which began as an idea three months ago sparked by events in her life, is an a capella outing utilising her vocals not only as the lead, but as the instrumentation on the songs, basically everything you hear is from her mouth. The EP was then written in 5 days and then recorded in 3 days. Intentionally created in that way to make sure she captured that snapshot of her life and kept it honest and pure.

The first single "Make.Believe." which is a poignant and emotive piece, "About not wanting to let someone go, but you know that you have to and for just a moment you’re asking them to pretend, to make-believe that they will still be around."

The beautiful visual accompaniment directed by Gary Nurse keeps the monochromatic aesthetic established with the EP artwork and reflects the theatrical nature of the song, showing the push n pull between two protagonaists/lovers and the young singer wanting to stay in a fantasy world of make-believe and hope to avoid the reality of a failing relationship.
