Nia Ekanem

Mr. Ekenam first interaction with One Room came in 2018 and from the first minute he was found singing and tuning his guitar. Originally from Birmingham and cutting his teeth in two seemingly polar opposite worlds Church and the burgining grime scene in Birmingham Nia made the jump to move to London and has never looked back. Describing fadin' as his first intro to the scene his tone is a reminder of voices and techniques of the past, his sings for truth and vulnerability and writes for love. Nia has recently worked with the likes of Fleur East and has just released his latest single shelter. We caught up with Nia at a Staying with One Room session in April and the passion and enthusiasm he has for his craft is more than evident. Having performed at two One Rooms now Nia's voice and reputation amongst the One Room community is solidified. What we do next with Nia, just wait and see…  Based in Dagenham to peace of the east London town has allowed Nia to create and stay in the zone.
