Singer Tomi Thomas is making the most of a boost in popularity after the successful release of his EP Hopeless Romantic.
The project picked up steam in the Afrobeat category and skyrocketed in the dancehall and reggae space with a track called “Hurricane” featuring the legendary Buju Banton. The highly anticipated drop lived up to the hype with industry support and extensive press coverage in Africa, Europe, the United States, and the Caribbean, along with other pockets of global reach.

Tomi Thomas has been staying busy since the Hopeless Romantic EP dropped in early June. It made for a nice build-up to the “Hurricane” video release on Buju’s birthday in mid-July and subsequent premier on media heavyweight The Fader. Tomi also worked on multiple collaborative projects recently and had several features debuting over the summer too.
From SJXY’s smooth single “So Long” to hip hop’s Show Dem Camp track “Rise of The Underdogs,” the crooner lends his exquisite vocals to enhance the flavor.
