Fiokee, Simi& Oxlade Decry Errant Lovers On ‘Koni Koni’

Masterful guitarist Fiokee has recruited Simi and Oxlade for his new single ‘Koni Koni’. This comes months after he teamed up with his longtime friend and collaborator DJ Coublon and Teni for the multiple versioned ‘Osan’.

Produced also by the capable duo of Fiokee and DJ Coublon, ‘Koni Koni’ tells an all too familiar tale of a being in a relationship with an erring lover, and the mental and emotional stress that comes with loving such person. There are times when we give our all to our partners but this affection and commitment aren’t replicated. In fact, men were hilariously recounting hurtful tales of their experiences with erring female partners just a few days ago on Twitter. This makes this song feel like a soundtrack to that sporadic tirade.

As usual, Simi and Oxlade come through with soothing yet thrilling vocal performances as they lament to their erring lovers the folly of their ways. Fiokee wonderfully litters the record with his strutting guitar riffs.

Enjoy the record above.

Davido & Oxlade Join Skip Marley To Remix The H.E.R-Assisted ‘Slow Down’

Last year, Skip Marley the grandson of the reggae legend Bob Marley, broke his relative silence and teamed up with one of R&B most promising star, H.E.R on ‘Slow Down’. And ever since it’s release, the song has enjoyed cultural and commercial success, recently making Skip the first Jamaican-born singer to hit the number one spot on the Billboard Adult R&B chart, do so. The song has also inspired a couple of remixes, the latest featuring two generations of Afrobeats stars, Davido and Oxlade.

Davido opens the remix with an impassioned verse detailing how a love interest is so pressed on coming over to spend the quarantine with him. But Davido isn’t in a hurry; he wants to know if she’s really down for commitments, and not just him being an itch for her to scratch.

Oxlade then comes through with a scene-stealing verse to wrap the record, fully ready for some with rousing moments with his woman. It’s so beautiful to watch how Davido and Oxlade do not compromise their style and delivery just to cater to an international audience. No doubt, they brought this record home that you could even swear you’re listening to an afrobeats record.

Enjoy this stirring remix above.

Oxlade’s Debut EP “Oxygene” Is Almost Here

One of Nigeria’s most gifted singers on the rise, Oxlade is finally set to release his debut EP titled “Oxygene.” This young singer who has been the toast of the town since ever since his rise to prominence last year is finally taking his game beyond killer features and sizzling singles to provide his teeming fans with a body of work. Oxlade isn’t there yet but it’s almost certain that he’s one of the heirs to the Afropop throne if there’s any.

Earlier today, the singer unveiled the album art and the tracklist for the EP alongside a message for his fans. “Hello World, after the many collaborations and sprinkles of singles, I am ready to put out my first project titled “Oxygene” named cause music is the air I breathe, S/O to my team @TroniqMusic. Now let me take you “Away” with the first single,” he shared on Twitter.

This new EP is set to be released next Friday, March 27 and as his debut and introductory release, it contains just six tracks. Interestingly, “Oxygene” is almost entirely an Oxlade affair as it features only one guest, Moelogo. Production-wise however, he flys on the wings of Echo, Lush, Nosa Apollo, Dera and Spax.

Spax who has successfully evaded the spotlight of the media for a while now also handles most of the engineering of the tape, while also teaming up with Godfrey O Eguakun to executive produce the EP.

Surprisingly, this project features no pre-released tracks as all six tracks are previously unheard sparkling new numbers. The project is, however, to be led by ‘Away’ which is now available across all streaming platforms. You can now pre-save the album on apple music above.
