and Ebuka contribute some spoken words to the song.

Timi Dakolo, the popular ‘Iyawo mi‘ crooner, has released yet another single dedicated to love and the promotion of the Igbo tribe’s rich cultural heritage. The new single, titled ‘Obim,’ was released on November 30th, 2021 with a colorful music video and perfectly describes traditional Igbo marriage ceremonies.

The song’s video, which stars Chinonso Arubayi as the bride and as the groom, depicts all of the processes involved in an Igbo traditional wedding, from the bride dancing in with her friends to her confirming who her groom is among the crowd.

Watch the video below:

The song’s chorus, which goes thus, “The queen wey own my heart. The crown upon my head. The essence of my life. Obim mo bimo” depicts the fierce love and devotion the groom has for his bride.

Speaking about the song, Timi Dakolo said, “Igbo customary marriage is one I have always found colourful and fascinating. I am glad I finally got to do a song centered around it, and that I was able to make the song and its video very authentic. Having Igbo stars featured in it added so much flavour because they were not just acting a script- the love for their culture was evident and it translated into the video beautifully.” 

The song also includes an entire section where the groom eulogises his bride in the typical Igbo fashion. Here we hear phrases like, “Achalugo nwanyi oma (a woman embodied with many rare virtues and gifts)” and “Nwa yiri igolo (one who resembles the morning sun)” 

In celebration of the Igbo culture, the video stars many Igbo dignitaries and celebrities, including Chinedu ‘Aki’ Ikedieze, Cynthia ‘Cee-C’ Nwadiora, Alex Ekubo, and Chioma ‘Chigul’ Omeruah.
