Reflecting the feel-good nature of the track, the music video dazzles in hues of blue and pink as he serenades his leading lady. ‘Olla’ marks the first release since his signing with JustJoJo Entertainment.
Climbing up the ranks in the flourishing Afrobeat scene, Jobaa has made some exceptional progress. Landing a premiere with BBC 1Xtra ‘Olla’ has since gained over 300,000 streams across digital platforms and he has secured a number 20 spot on the Nigerian iTunes chart. Selected as the number one track on Rod Rantz ‘weekly top 5’ on The AfroNation Show on Westside Radio, he has also gained global recognition with a range of playlist additions. This includes YouTube Music’s ‘Afrobeats Now’, Deezer ‘New Nigeria’, Spotify’s ‘Afro Hits’ and four playlists on Apple Music ( ‘New Music Daily’, ‘Future Hits’, ‘Pop Chill’ and ‘Afrobeats Workout’).
Having previously featured on Burna Boy Spaceship Collective signee Buju’s single ‘Sweet Love’ last December, which highlighted Jobaa to the music world, the 20-year old makes his single debut. Featuring a super catchy, percussion driven Afro-pop instrumentation, which is produced by Jaypizzle and engineered by Selebobo (a.k.a Mix Monsta), ’Olla’ is a stellar debut that highlights Jobaa’s fresh and zealous interpretation of contemporary Afrobeats.
