While attending the Music Industry Arts program, Idris and a group of friends / his band recorded a 4-song project as class assignments. Idris would call the band tadé (a shortened version of his middle name and inspired by Nigerian/British legend Sade). The 4-song project would later be releases as tadé’s debut EP 'Omo' on April 5, 2017.
‘Omo’ is Yoruba and can be directly translated to ‘Child’. Conceptually, it is a 4-song project that touches on youth, love and growth. Embedded within the EP is a story of a boy who comes of age, finds love and purpose. Sonically, the EP combines elements of hip-hop, world music, afro music and r&b creating a truly unique sound.
