Olufemi George, a growing Nigerian hip hop artist known as Oba Lurge, will release his first international collaboration titled “Red Rose”.
The coveted project stars Jamaican dancehall artist Swazz and Afrobeats singer Ghash, who also produced the song.
“Red Rose” is set to land on Oba Lurge’s next project, “Son of George”.
âRed Rose symbolizes love and romance and is one for hardcore fans. The record was released under the musical imprint of Oba Lurge and will be distributed exclusively under Mad Solutions,â said Oba Lurge.
Oba Lurge is considered by many contemporaries to be one of the most versatile artists of the new generation.
The singer’s creative journey began shortly after joining the Debating Society at St Mary’s Kindergarten and Primary School, Okokomaiko, Lagos, where he wrote articles and entered school contests.
His music career began after making his imprint, Mich Selber Music, and was dubbed the record label’s youngest CEO in Africa at the time.
In 2019 he released his first body of work, featuring singles like “Carry Go” and “Uncle London”. He continued his impressive run and released a second project dubbed âGrammy Dreamsâ in December of the same year.
Its sound is a mix of afrobeats, hip-hop 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 started recording music on Cubase and during his journey. It’s open to artists like Nasty C, DaVido, Olamide, Orezi, and Reminisce.
