Fast rising Afrobeats singer, Bukola Ireti Holo aka OHLA has released a 7-track specially curated EP titled, Afro Icon.
According to him, Afro Icon is an inspirational, melodic, all-round Afrobeats sound, which landed on the charts almost immediately after its release.
Hugely influenced by the diverse sounds and genres of music OHLA grew up listening to as a kid, the EP project is expected to resonate with all audiences.
Blending her own eclectic music style, Afro Icon is set to position the rising talent as one of the future stars to look out for. The project features veteran rapper, Vector and Mystro, while Big Mouse and Mystro produced the tracks.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the EP, the Ondo State-born singer, who is currently signed to international music label, Gifted Nation, said her music is a bag of emotions put together to tell her story, with no genre in particular.
“I have always known what I wanted; which is to create something beautiful, relatable, memorable, and all-round iconic. I want the underprivileged especially girls and the young generation coming up in their different niches to listen to my sound and feel good about themselves; be proud of their roots and be brave at all times, and to not be scared, to make moves and stay iconic in their own uniqueness without bowing to societal pressure. Afro Icon is available on all digital platforms,” she disclosed.
