Nigerian music is quickly conquering the world. And with torchbearers such as Wizkid paving the way, new talents like Oxlade and Omah Lay are rapidly ascending. This summer you’ll able to see all three of them in Slottskogen during Way Out West!
With his smooth, soulful voice and his irresistible fusion of afrobeat and mainstream, this Lagos based singer has already made huge waves – at home as well as globally. Such as the absolutely massive ‘KU LO SA’ and its live version ‘KU LO SA – A COLORS SHOW’ which has amassed over 150 millions streams on Spotify alone. Everyone agrees: Oxlade is destined to be the next big thing coming from Nigeria.
Within two years of his break-out EP ‘Get Layd’ (2020), rapidly rising star Omah Lay was already considered one of the most important and innovative artists of the expansive Nigerian music scene. The 25-year-old singer and producer’s brand of afro-fusion pulls from West Africa’s highlife genre as well as rap, R&B, and the afrobeat of his hometown Lagos. The result is as danceable as it is captivatingly emotional.
Both Oxlade and Omah Lay will perform on Friday Aug 11th.
