Lagos based singer Oxlade, real name Ikuforiji Abdulrahman Olaitan, is currently one of the young new acts tagged to change the face of the Nigerian and African music Industry. Formerly studying History and International Relations at the Lagos State University, he dropped out of school to focus on music.

Within a week since its March 27 digital release, Oxygene became most-streamed album (within Nigeria) on Apple Music’s charts, surpassing industry heavyweights such as Chike and Fireboy. The reason is not beyond Oxlade’s intentional and free-spirited musical expression – a style of music un-appreciated, but now gradually gaining appeal among Nigerian music fans.
