The second piece, ‘Eternal Love,’ is a moving gratitude to both wonders of the universe; A mother and the Mother Earth — “We are born of love; love is our mother.” They both are in their own terms the sustenance of existence and a pure Divine gift.

"The Greater Middle East region is a cradle full of silent talents and I believe that artists with a background from that region are making major strides to push forward the international creative industry. As with my overall career in the music industry, I believe in advancement of my craft and always striving to move ahead of the curve. I want to be part of the era of broader collaborations between the region’s very own future legends. I believe NFTs will be a strong funnel in which I can present and showcase my artistic works, while attracting a new wave of listeners who can relate with my artistic point of view. Such as the movement from physical CD sales to streaming service providers such as Spotify and Apple Music, NFTs too will be powerful shapers of many creative industries in the upcoming decade." -TOHI
TOHI is an all round award-winning multilingual singer/songwriter and producer from Los Angeles, with Persian roots. He has one the biggest social media presences (over 6M+ followers on Instagram alone) and he's currently working on bilingual collaborations with the likes of Rotimi, Mohammad Ramadan, Costi, Cheb Khaled, DJ Assad, T. Garcia and many more.
TOHI started as one of the youngest founding members of the Persian hiphop scene at only an age of 12. Due to the political situation and the ban on his music he had to leave the country ruled by conservative Islamic regime and lived a great deal of his professional career in multicultural environments with different musical influences. Today this is enhancing his work’s musicality and diversity, marking him as one of the leading figures fusing his Persian roots into the international urban music scene.
“As one of the founding members of the Persian hip hop and urban music scene I have always loved to work from the passion within me. As this path came to an end due to the circumstances in my homeland I could choose to leave it all behind. But instead, I choose to bring it to the next level and after a journey of almost 2 decades I am now on the edge to show the world my traditional roots and how they also can be part of the international urban music. My love for music, my homeland and the love of the TOHI army will always make me aim for the top on the international charts and nothing less than that.”
