OLAKIRA UNVEILS NEW SINGLE ‘WAKANDA JOLLOF’

Coming on the back of an explosive debut summer last year which firmly set him up as one to watch, fast-rising Afrobeats artist and producer OLAKIRA is excited to unveil ‘Wakanda Jollof’, the leading single and title track from his brand new debut EP.

Widely seen as one of 2019’s most exciting African music prospects, Olakira burst onto the scene last summer with his double A-side debut singles ‘Hey Lover’ and ‘Flirty Signal’, which have garnered over 3 million plays on YouTube, Spotify, and Soundcloud. Before his artist debut last year, he was writing and producing some of the Afrobeats scene’s biggest hits, including co-writing and co-producing breakthrough hits like ‘Akube’ and ‘My Woman’.

Speaking about the inspiration behind Wakanda Jollof, Olakira says, “Wakanda is a unifying word, recognized worldwide as a good symbol for Africa, while Jollof is Africa’s favourite spicy rice dish, so I’m basically serving up a spicy dish from the continent to the rest of the world”.
