Oba Lurge To Release First International Collaboration | Nigeria
Olufemi George, a fast-rising Nigerian hip hop artiste, known as Oba Lurge, is to release his first international collaboration titled, ”Red Rose”.
The much-coveted project features Jamaican dancehall artiste, Swazz, and Afrobeats singer, Ghash, who also produced the song.
“Red Rose” is slated to land on Oba Lurge’s forthcoming project, ‘Son of George’.
“Red Rose symbolises love and romance and is one for the hardcore lovers. The record was released under Oba Lurge’s music imprint and will be exclusively distributed under Mad Solutions,” Oba Lurge said.
Oba Lurge is regarded by many contemporaries as one of the most versatile artistes of the new generation.
The singer’s creative journey sparked shortly after joining the Debate society of St Mary’s Nursery and Primary school, Okokomaiko, Lagos, where he wrote articles and participated in school competitions.
His music career began after he established his imprint, Mich Selber Music, and was nick-named Africa’s youngest record label CEO at that time.
In 2019, he put out his first body of work, which had singles like “Carry Go” and “Uncle London.” He continued his impressive run and released a second project christened “Grammy Dreams” in December of that year.
His sound is a blend of Afrobeats, HipHop, and Dancehall in its elements.
Born in Akwa Ibom, South-South Nigeria, Oba Lurge was raised in Lagos by a father who served in the Nigerian Customs Service and a mother, who is a trader.
He began recording music on Cubase, and through the course of his journey. He is opened to acts like Nasty C, DaVido, Olamide, Orezi and Reminisce.
