Obongjayar Booking Agency Profile

Steven Umoh, better known as his stage name Obongjayar, is a Nigerian musical artist who performs a mixture of Afrobeat and spoken word. Obongjayar was born and raised in Calabar, Nigeria, and was raised by his grandmother as his mother had to flee to the United Kingdom to escape from Obongjayar’s abusive father. While growing up, Obongjayar found an escape in music and would listen to artists such as Eminem, Ciara, Nelly, Snoop Dogg and Usher. As a teenager, Obongjayar moved to England to live with his mother and at the time was immersed in the Nigerian music scene. After he decided to focus on pursuing a musical career, Obongjayar began releasing his music through SoundCloud. He then caught the attention of Richard Russell who asked him to contribute to Everything Is Recorded. Shortly after, Obongjayar released his debut EP, “Home,” which was featured on Noisey. He then followed that up with his second EP, “Bassey.” Most recently, Obongjayar has released his debut studio album, “Which Way is Forward.” Currently, Obongjayar has nearly 185,000 monthly listeners on Spotify. Some of his most streamed songs include “Elixir,” which has over 3.1 million streams, “Never Change,” which has over 1.3 million streams, and “Still Sun,” which has nearly 940,000 streams..

Frequently Asked Questions about booking Obongjayar to perform.

Many performers, actors, speakers and other talent like Obongjayar in certain cases will consider virtual appearances via live streaming. They perhaps may accept lower fees too. If you are seriously interested in booking Obongjayar or other talent shown on our site, we will research their desire and the specific fee for your live-streaming event or project request.
Obongjayar's current work schedule and location in relation to your event's type, date, budget, and locality will play a primary factor in the acceptance of booking Obongjayar for your party. As long as your funding is commensurate with the price range to book Obongjayar, CTI will propose your event to the official agency representing Obongjayar. After we consult with them, we will provide a personal and accurate quote that includes: final costs, availability, and actual interest in being hired for your specific event or party.
CTI can give you the accurate Obongjayar booking price once we submit your event details to their camp. "How much does it cost to book Obongjayar for an event?" is a frequent question we get. The final Obongjayar booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we may show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Obongjayar charge for an event. An example fee to book Obongjayar is in the starting range of $15,000-$24,999. However, any recent popularity change would cause a price fluctuation well beyond this example. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price as well. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the Obongjayar agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Obongjayar manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book Obongjayar for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Obongjayar agent on your behalf if your funding is in place. By not having funding ready then it will more difficult to book Obongjayar, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Obongjayar booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Obongjayar, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
