pointlessblr said: I just watched one of your videos it was about male feminists, religion and so on. Can I just say that it was the realest video I have watched in a long time. Being a 19 year old Ghanaian born in London I completely relate to everything you said in your video. Can I ask how you came about all of your knowledge you seem so in touch with life x

Thank you for watching, I’m really glad it resonated with you! And as for your question, I just started listening to myself. That might sound ambiguous & hippy-ish, but that was really it. I started listening/trusting my gut when I didn’t like something, or when something that was socially accepted felt odd to me. Even if everyone around me believed x to be true, if something was telling me it was false, I started to listen to that part of me. And then I would try to articulate what I was feeling/hearing in myself. If I couldn’t articulate it then I would search & read, in order to find the words that could articulate what I was feeling. I’ve still got a long way to go but I hope that helps :)

NEW MUSIC: Abe Says - “When I Wake Up”.

Abraham Popoola is a London-based creative whose upcoming film Kebab' sees him take on the role of both leading actor and director.

Currently working on his first EP, Popoola, who goes under the name ‘Abe Says’, has released this neo-soul electronic hip-hop track When I Wake Up - an unashamedly heartfelt romantic tune about an all-consuming lover, and I can’t stop listening to it.

If his name at all sounds familiar, you may have heard his voice and seen his face in this video from in Cecile Emeke’s Strolling' series.
