Emilomo - The Order of Things (@emitsunami)
There is nothing reasonable about death, moreso when it is someone you are certain has died long before they were meant to. What remains, besides the pain, is this gnawing feeling of regret. After a close friend died suddenly in early 2018, Emilomo started writing /The Order of Things/ as a way of coping, needing a place to put everything, to unscramble the mess.
/The Order of Things/ takes you on a journey of pain with the bereaved. First broken and unaccepting, then regretful and finally hopeful for peace.
Nigerian singer, song-writer Emilomo makes her soulful debut with “The order of things”, written in her attempt to find balance and forgiveness in grief. Her love for music began at an early age, listening to her mother’s tapes and eventually singing at church. Currently residing in Ghana, she continues to explore life themes that question, accept and celebrate.
Some of her biggest musical influences include MaryMary, Norah Jones, Brooke Ligertwood, Brandy, Corinne Bailey Rae, Lianne La Havas and Bryan Adams.
