Anendlessocean popularly known as AEO is a Nigerian R&B/Soul Gospel Artist. His real name is Alli-Hakeem Ayobami. He debuted in the gospel music scene in 2021 with his debut EP Apeirogon which received a lot of positive attention and feedback.
Anendlessocean’s distinctive songwriting skills communicate depth and evoke a vivid imagination of genuine yearning and desire for God. He started music professionally in the year 2015 and since then hasn’t looked back…
The sound in the Nigerian English-speaking Gospel music scene is divided into High praise, praise and worship. The sound in the worship brand has grown to be generic over the past few years. The percussive pattern is very predictable while the melodies, string use and chord progression can now be spotted and traced to Gospel from the remotest hint. But in steps Anendlessocean, a young, nearly obscure Gospel act from Lagos. His sound is very mellow, methodical and broody. While it is definitely cut from the Alternative/Folk cloth, you might need to pay some attention before you can confirm his chosen genre. The music on his EP, Apeirogon is refreshing and devoid of sonic, stylistic and lyrical cliches.
Even his titles don’t scream ‘gospel’ at first glance. More importantly, his delivery also does away with the usual cliche that comes with Gospel music. His technique and vocal texture scream Rock and Indie influences.
He discusses the love of God in ‘Solid’ and ‘Domino’ with carefully selected clauses of affection like he is singing to a lover of 50 years. While the music is mostly delivered in English, AEO doesn’t forget his background as he infuses Yoruba on ‘Alakori’ and uses “Gidigbangban” to describe God’s love on ‘Solid‘.
