Although Oxlade has appeared on many buzzing songs, he’s hadn’t yet released an official single in 2021. Ikuforiji Abdulrahman Olaitan better known as Oxlade has become one of the most highly sought-after young Nigerian singers. Oxlade has created something wholly unique with his new single ‘Ojuju‘. It is a build-up to his forthcoming debut album he has been working on for some time now.
Renowned for his distinct sound and hypnotic melodies, Oxlade registered global success with his Oxygen EP that had the breakaway hit single ‘Away’ which was named in rolling stones top 50 songs of 2020. Oxlade went on to release songs like ‘DKT’ which charted in Apple music’s top 10 across Africa. He has collaborated with Fireboy Dml, Davido, Ycee, and one of the UK’S biggest grime stars Sneakbo among others. Describing his new single ‘Ojuju’ he went on to say;
“‘Ojuju’ is a story of a divine creature being afraid of falling in love, something that exposes a weak side of the being. But when someone is in love, they fear nothing. Being in love is a beautiful feeling. You just cannot get enough of that person, you cannot imagine a day without that person in your life and you just keep wanting more of that same person every single day!” he said he further stated that, “This song and my upcoming project are my gifts to Africa’s youth. We are one and go through the same struggles. I know my fans across Africa already know this because they feel the message and my love for them through all my music.”
Oxlade’s vocals are unique so we can only wait with anticipation for what he has in store with his next project.
