Iwobi’s album will feature his friend and former teammate, Everton midfielder Amadou Onana, along with collaborations from other fellow professional footballers. In the studio, the duality between Iwobi and Onana brings a unique energy, as seen on Instagram. Iwobi’s upcoming album not only showcases his and Onana’s lyrical talents, but also features significant contributions from some of Iwobi’s other teammates. “Collabs? There’s going to be other footballers, I’m sure people have heard me with one of my ex-Everton teammates, Amadou Onana. I’m not going to give away, but there’s more to come,” reveals Iwobi in a recent interview with Kiss FM. The collaborations that feature on the upcoming project highlight the album’s theme of inclusion, helping to echo the importance of cooperation on and off the pitch.

Iwobi has displayed lots of anticipation for his musical debut, driven by his desire to challenge the norms and stereotypes of athlete-turned-musicians. “Never thought I’d make it, now when I step them be recognising the faces,” is just one of his quoted lyrics that underline the unexpected rise in both his sport and now music careers. This album not only marks a new chapter for Iwobi, but also sets the stage for how future athletes can successfully cross over to other forms of entertainment.

Iwobi also emphasizes the emotional depth of his lyrics, reflecting personal experiences and broader social themes within his music. “Expressive with my soul, I couldn’t give a damn that they treated me like a disposable. Setbacks in the past but there’s so much I could show you” stated the former Arsenal player. The message within his raps highlight his resilient journey through adversity and hardship, helping to connect and resonate with his audience by offering a raw look into his life off the pitch. The album is set to release soon, so fans of both football and rap music should stay tuned into Iwobi’s Instagram for updates on the official drop date.
