Consider yourself introduced to Boadi (that’s pronounced bwer-dee), a South London based artist whose music take a leaf out of his influences such as Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, D’Angelo and Marvin Gaye whilst presenting them with his own unique sound in the form of a marriage between afro-funk, R&B and neo-soul. Last year, Boadi released his exceptional second EP, the follow up to 2016’s Bwerdee titled AwoMaa, a project comprising of six spectacular tracks which show us exactly why Boadi is one of the most exciting artists around.
As part of his COLORS show, Boadi treats us to a beautiful rendition of the EP’s stunning title track “AwoMaa” (Awo is his grandmother’s name and Maa translates to “child” in the Ghanaian dialect of Twi; together they mean “my grandmother’s child”) – an ode to his mother. Rich, smooth and utterly emotional, Boadi pours his heart and soul into the performance which will tug at your heartstrings and have you racing to the phone to call your own mother. Enjoy the performance up top and be sure to check out Boadi’s magnificent AwoMaa EP too.
