Afro-Pop Star Oxlade Releases Lyric Video For New Single ‘DKT’

Following on from his EP ‘Oxygene’ – which amassed over 25 million streams across all platforms – three million streams in its first week – and his feature on Skip Marley’s single ‘Slow Down (alongside H.E.R and Davido), Afro-pop sensation OXLADE drops the lyric video for his sassy number, ‘DKT (Dis Kind Thing)’.

Starting out by dishing up music on Soundcloud in 2017, Lagos-based Oxlade released his first official single ‘Shugar’ the following year, which instantly caught the attention of hordes of music fans. Also known for the hit song ‘Sing’ with Fireboy DML and collaborations with acts such as Reekado Banks and DJ Tunez, another breakthrough moment for Oxlade was his feature on the Blaqbonez track ‘Mamiwota’ last year. Also in 2019, Oxlade featured alongside Sneakbo on Skengdo’s UK underground track ‘Brixton Boy’ and he performed to a 20,000-strong audience at the world famous O2 Arena in London at Wizkid’s Starboy Fest.

I was privilege enough to be one of the first to hear DEMOLA‘s collaborative track with Afrobeat sensation Davido at the launch party on Monday…and let me tell you, this banger will have your hips swinging in no time.

Meaning ‘big drum’ the self-produced, infectious slice of Afropop is packed to the rafters with instrumentation as DEMOLA’s violin solo sings, trumpets and horns blow, and the ‘Gbedu’ thuds like a heartbeat throughout, making the record a celebration of culture, dance and the very sound that has become synonymous with the sweet and catchy Afrobeats sounds that have become one of the worlds most loved.

With a snappy, smooth and uplifting delivery, DEMOLA sets the tone and pace for this insanely catchy record, which encompasses every traditional element of Afrobeats and mixes it with genuine originality. The addition of Afrobeats star Davido, who lays down the perfect verse for this number only lends to further accentuate the radiance of the record.

Having already been associated with Mathew Knowles’ Music World Entertainment, DEMOLA released a previous collaboration on the label, ‘Light Up’ featuring Wande Coal.

Now making his global debut with UK based Track Record Entertainment (TRE), DEMOLA is thumping out his music to the sound of his ‘Gbedu’…check out the video below…

She kick starts her 2019 with the exciting new music video for her latest single ‘Cooked Food’, taken from her long awaited and highly anticipated debut EP, which is set for release later this year.

For the ‘Cooked Food’ video, VICKY SOLA took things back to her hometown in Brixton, with the help of burgeoning video director Marika Godwin (Nolay, Trillary Banks, Runtown). Filmed around the vibrant Brixton market, with choreography directed by Patience J (WSTRN, Davido, Tiwa Savage, Emeli Sande), the outcome is a fierce and colourful visual offering that not only brings the record further to life, but also showcases Vicky’s infectious personality and performance prowess.
