Tobi Oke

Sabotaging since 7 Jul 2012

Tobi is a twentysomething writer/journalist and general music enthusiast from London. Contributes to publications as diverse as MTV (Monthly column – The UK Rap Up with Tobz), Guardian Music, Nupe Mag and URM. Would love to play an instrument, choosing between the guitar and the piano – and has been for almost two years now. Almost always thinking of which song to delete from his iPod to free up space for more (it never gets easy) and has a tourettes like propensity to blurt out lyrics at any given moment. Probably the most defensive Arsenal fan you’ll ever come across, hates Barcelona (yes, it’s possible) and Stoke City FC in equal measure. Didn’t enjoy the part of uni that involved reading a book and somehow almost always drawing a different conclusion to everyone else. He is haunted by an irregular sleeping pattern, but on the bright side at least he gets to cater to his US followers as well as UK - over at @TeflonTobz.
