Tobe Nwigwe and his wife Fat took the BET Awards by some kind of crazy storm on Tuesday and if you dare take the time to witness their electric performance, you’ll see why America can’t get enough of this guy. “FYE FYE” continues Nwigwe’s streak of numbers that crackle with intensity, in which fire, force and faith come across in equal measure. (And stick around to the very end to see a special solo performance from the youngest Nwigwe, who’s got her own bright career ahead of her).
Nwigwe started breaking out in 2020 due to a series of pandemic singles that captured the moment with rare poignancy. Songs like “TRY JESUS” and “EAT” established the Nwigwes as true originals, navigating complex emotions with intelligence, humor and excellence. Their work found an audience that continues to grow fast, but expect the BET performance to put them on a whole new stratosphere as their conviction and energy are bound to make curious newcomers into lifelong fans in no time.
