Check Out Odunsi The Engine & Nonso Amadi’s ‘War’ EP

WAR EP Artwork

When I heard the young, Nigerian, Afro-Fusion/Soul artists Odunsi The Engine and Nonso Amadi were working on a joint EP, the anticipation got very real!

Odunsi performed at Native Mag‘s first festival – ‘NATIVELAND’ in Lagos last Christmas, sharing the stage with J Hus, Skepta, Maleek Berry and many more; two of his songs were played on OVO Sound Radio Episode 40 and he keeps dropping endless bangers. Nonso Amadi’s song ‘Radio’ produced by Juls was exclusively premiered on Ebro‘s Apple Music show #Beats1Ebro and ‘Tonight’ has over a million streams on Spotify.

Now the dream team have finally dropped their much anticipated ‘War’ EP which has been made available to listen to via Soundcloud; I decided to have a quick chat with Odunsi yesterday morning to discuss the EP and what’s coming next!

Let’s talk about ‘WAR’ – the EP. How did this happen?

The idea stemmed from a growing relationship between Nonso and I, we were already halfway into a song collaboration and we just realised we had been sharing a lot of music with each other. We then decided to create a theme and compiled some songs.

Your favourite song on ‘WAR’?


Is this going to be a thing now? Nonso and yourself working together on more projects

(Laughs) I don’t know. What I know is we are really close, almost like brothers, so there will always be collaborative efforts in the works. It just might not be official all the time, or definite.

Has your song being on OVO Radio gained you more listeners/supporters?

What I know for sure is it got some key eyes watching and keeping tabs on my art and brand. That’s what has been completely evident

Do you have a favourite quote that you live by?

“Can’t you see, we are Icons already” – Odunsi, 2017

Besides ‘WAR’, any new projects/sounds dropping real soon? What can we expect?

Lots of stuff. We’ll see when we see.
