By | Published on Thursday 24 August 2017


Ninja Tune-allied music publisher Just Isn’t Music has signed an exclusive publishing deal with Ghostpoet – aka Obaro Ejimiwe – whose fourth album ‘Dark Days + Canapés’ came out last week.

Confirming the deal, Just Isn’t Music’s Martin Dobson told reporters: “Ninja Tune and Just Isn’t Music have been fans of Ghostpoet for years now and finally we get to officially work with him on the publishing side of things”.

Dobson adds that: “Obaro’s songwriting has always been so intensely original and uniquely British, yet ‘Dark Day + Canapés’ feels like his most inspired work to date. Even when some of those inspirations come from the darker territory the world is currently experiencing. We can’t wait to introduce these songs to the wider world and have others enjoy them as much as we do.”

Ejimiwe himself added: “After admiring them from afar for a while, it’s nice to now be part of the JIM publishing family. I’m very much looking forward to the adventures ahead”.
