Tobe Nwigwe Spotlight
Tobe Nwigwe is nominated as a finalist to be the H-Town Hip-Hop Artist of the year! The team here at H-Town Awards just want to give a brief introduction to Tobe Nwigwe, a true artist teaching the art of purpose through his music!
Tobe Nwigwe is an enigma. The lyrics and tone of his music tell the story of a difficult upbringing in Alief, TX. Like other rappers who grew up in the proverbial hood, Tobe’s autobiographical tracks conjure images of gang violence, drug deals, pimps and prostitution. The authenticity in his work is palpable. Still, the man is a beacon of positivity and graciousness. The same songs that describe shootouts and the loss of childhood friends also speak on the power of faith and the importance of purpose. Tobe’s music will take you on a journey, and if your in search of finding your purpose Tobe will lead you there. His art transcends along the lines of poetry. Tobe Nwigwe is a true wordsmith.
Tobe has a singular goal in life: “to make purpose popular.” The first-generation-Nigerian kid from Alief (Houston, TX) who was a D-1 linebacker and had dreams of playing in the NFL, saw those dreams go away in the snap of a finger due to a career-ending foot injury his senior year.
In his despair, he turned to his faith and found a new calling; he would teach others to “move through purpose.” Long before he ever put pen to paper and called himself a rapper, Tobe was speaking to rooms full of students through his self-started nonprofit foundation, TEAM GINI, educating them on the merits of a purpose-driven existence. Through tremendous consistency and execution, Tobe has attracted fans across the globe, and we are proud that the fans of H-Town have selected Tobe as a finalist to be the H-Town Hip-Hop Artist of The Year.
