AbOriginal Music is proud to present “Omote” - the brand new single from Alternative Nigerian Singer/Songwriter and producer Ese Peters. Debuting as the first single from his forthcoming self-titled EP, the Sizzle-produced “Omote” is a soaring ballad that is very much vintage Ese Peters.

Backed by lush acoustic guitars, resounding string arrangements and subtle drum patterns, over which Ese Peters effortlessly but compellingly displays his soulful vocal tones, undeniable singing abilities and heart-tugging song writing dexterity, “Omote” is a brilliantly crafted Rock ballad that not only cuts straight to the heart of its listener but also sets Ese Peters well apart from anything that is in Nigerian’s musical landscape in 2012.

A love letter to the woman in his life, “Omote” is unashamedly passionate, with earnest lyrics delivered over soaring melodies. The result is a new anthem for lovers everywhere looking to tell that special someone how they truly feel.


A talented singer and songwriter, gifted with a distinctive, understated but emotionally resonant vocal style, Ese Peters is a unique and original musical talent who has developed a dedicated following among music lovers drawn by his musical explorations of the various dimensions to love, hope and faith.

A relative newcomer to the Nigerian music scene, Ese Peters has enjoyed critical and commercial success since embarking upon his solo career in 2010: his previously released singles - “Gone (Wetin I Go Do?)”, “Stay With Me” and “Walk Away” - were all well-received by the public, as was his 2011 independent release The Acoustic EP, a collection of acoustic renditions of his singles and of classic songs such as Asa’s “Baby Gone” and Darey’s “The Way You Are”.

Music lovers have similarly been receptive to Ese’s live performances thus far, with his performances at industry showcases such as Taruwa, Rock Nite, Freedom Hall and One Mic Naija where he has garnered rave reviews. Against this background of quality songwriting and memorable live performances, Ese has become recognized as an emerging star of the thriving Nigerian alternative music scene.

A gifted songwriter, a brilliant producer, talented composer and an accomplished, self-taught guitarist, Ese - who counts rock acts The Goo Goo Dolls, U2 and especially, John Mayer among his influences - considers himself a romantic storyteller and sees his music as the perfect medium for conveying his narratives to his audience and also coping with an uncertain world. To him, music is “political, spiritual and mental liberation”, and he sees his mission in life as “changing the world, one song at a time” armed with nothing more than a warm voice and a gift for striking the right chords in his audience’s hearts. 

Signed to AbOriginal Music, Ese is currently putting the finishing touches to a new, self-titled EP scheduled for release later in the year. This EP will serve as a shining example of what music lovers have come to expect from Ese Peters: earnest, intimate reflections on love delivered passionately over emotionally resonant melodies. Grab a chair, sit back and listen: Ese Peters is ready to sing to your heart.
