 Obi's father looks at him and says “I named you Obinna which means heart of the father. You sing with so much soul and passion, one day you will be a star."

 This very moment was the birth of Obisoulstar as a national and international artist, whose music is a fusion of Abrobeat/soul/funk, merging the likes of Fela Kuti, Prince and much more. He has now been dubbed "The SoulRokinRolla" and "The Minister of Afro-rock Religion".

Intermixing music, prose,visualart and photography all by Obisoulstar, the show will explore his journey from America to Nigeria and back to America inhis evolution as anapplied and performing artist.
