The track radiates warmth, with vocals that bend, twist and snap amid a momentous melody, continuing Obongjayar’s expressive style—a fine mix of spirituality and identity. Speaking about the EP, he says: “Which Way Is Forward?” is a project about love, family, self-empowerment and self-belief. It’s a mirror that allows you to look inward, to understand trauma, to heal. It’s a project about mustering the strength – the strength to get up and clean house.”
