Budding Afro-fusion singer-songwriter, Michelle Oluwatomi Akanbi, popularly known as Töme, releases a new live band video ahead of the release of her new single, ‘I Pray’.
Töme who recently released her debut EP titled ‘Bigger Than Four Walls’ (BT4W), has gone on to create an enchanting live band video, performing three tracks off the EP alongside a short two-part docu-series on the making of the EP.
