Nigerian Soul R&B artist TolumiDE (pronounced toe-LU-Mee-Day) has just released an exotic new music video for her Afro-soul hit “Your Arms (Fun Mi Layo).” Nassau, Bahamas provides the perfect, colorful backdrop for the journey of love that the two main characters in the video embark on. The video follows this newly loved up couple as they dance their way around the island and share in happiness, ultimately culminating in a proposal. TolumiDE herself also makes a few appearances throughout the video finding joy on her own, dancing and exploring the beautiful island. The visuals go hand in hand with the the song’s lyrics “Fun Mi Layo,” which can be translated to “You give me joy.” The video has been released in anticipation of her two part project to include an acoustic EP titled “Mama Sunshine.”
For this EP, she enlisted the help of two talented African artists. Jaja Basheghezi, who played guitar and produced the music, and Toby Foyeh, who co-wrote the title track. The listeners’ journey starts with “Mama Sunshine,” a song about the warmth and sunshine that mothers bring to all of our lives and the great significance role the sun plays in our lives. The ep album then moves through four more tracks filled with themes of encouragement, assurance, overcoming challenges, and love, in an extended acoustic version of Your Arms produced by James McKinney. She chose these specific songs because she wanted to feature them in a more intimate setting, giving listeners a chance to hear them in a completely raw and organic format before they move into further professional production. When fans are listening to this EP, it will feel as though they are experiencing TolumiDE singing it live, right in front of them.
