New Music: Tunde Olaniran – Symbol

R&B soul singer, rhymer, choreographer, organizer and all-around dope Flint native Tunde Olaniran releases his brand new single “Symbol” that’s an infectious blend of warm sounds with a freeing overtone and symbolic message.

Tunde on the song:

“I wrote ‘Symbol’ as the child of an immigrant, under the global spectre of violence against black and brown bodies, and in light of the international refugee crisis. Now, with the Trump Administration, black and brown bodies are again held up as political symbols to attack DACA and feed white nationalism. It saddens me that these lyrics feel like they will be relevant for many more generations. ‘Symbol’ is about still finding joy in the knowledge that despite a dark history, we still became the future, and that my body is the literal wildest dream of my ancestors.”
