PFL/GEFFEN RECORDS SINGER-SONGWRITER NIGE RELIVES HIS TRAUMA IN HEARTFELT DEBUT “WAR IN THE TRENCHES”



Launching into the spotlight, 22-year-old singer-songwriter Nige introduces his poignant narrative with the release of his new video, "War in the Trenches." Originating from Washington D.C., Nige offers a raw portrayal of his daily reality, where violence and shattered dreams dominate. The video portrays Nige navigating his environment, accompanied by allies dressed in solidarity, as he confronts the harsh realities of street life.


In "War in the Trenches," Nige voices the struggle of his community, singing, "There's a war in the trenches, in the streets there's a battle / I was born in the jungle, we're just praying for survival," echoing his personal encounters with law enforcement and the loss of loved ones to violence and injustice.


Reflecting on his inspiration for the song, Nige shares, "Growing up in the hood, my father always urged me to 'be the light in the darkness around you.' It took time for me to grasp his words, but creating this song is my attempt to embody that light in the midst of our collective struggles."


Nige gained initial traction through TikTok, where his emotionally charged songs resonated deeply, amassing millions of views and likes. Known for his evocative storytelling and ability to infuse pain into his music, "War in the Trenches" marks a powerful debut that, despite its dark themes, carries undertones of hope and resilience, hinting at a promising future for the emerging D.C. artist.
