Ghostpoet pretty much has the market cornered in the do-it-yourself anti-gangsta-rap genre. From home-meddler, to Mercury Award nominee in two years is a pretty impressive feat, even in the modern Myspace environment. After signing with indie soul label, Brownswood Recordings, he released the much anticipated debut Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam, which drew comparisons with the work of everyman poet, Mike ‘The Streets’ Skinner. Ghostpoet, aka Obaro Ejimiwe is bringing his offbeat lyrical magic down-under this week, playing three shows in all, at The Northcoat Social Club Melbourne (Oct 20), Musica Festival Sydney (Oct 22), The Bakery Perth (Oct 23).
