Music icon, Tony Okorojiâ€™s new recording, â€˜Oriakuâ€™ (New School) is finally set for national and international release on radio, TV and across several digital media platforms.
For some time, a big buzz has been on at TOPS, a 360 Degrees Entertainment Company run by Okoroji, as finishing touches on the recording, video shoot and presentation of the new release of Oriaku were being completed.
According to TOPS, they are authoritatively announcing that everything is set and the fans of the unique sound of the music maestro should be ready to be titillated by what is in every way, a special sound.
The sweet song â€˜Oriakuâ€™ with the thumping bass guitar line was a key song in Tony Okorojiâ€™s iconic album, â€œJulianaâ€, which used to hit up the dance floor across the country.
According to Okoroji, the former President of PMAN, who is currently Chairman of the Board of the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON), â€œWe have re-oxygenated Oriaku. It has a new groove.
“You need to listen to this beautiful song to appreciate what I am talking about. This is not a re-mix but a completely brand-new recording with new orchestration.
“Working with TOPS All Stars, my young team of very talented creative artistes, we have kept the essential elements of the great song and brought in a fresh new feel to give what we call â€˜Oriaku New Schoolâ€™ a new groove.
” I believe that lovers of good music, young and old, will rock to this new sound. The video is also very-very electrifyingâ€.
The video shoot of Oriaku had the photography directed by the prince of video animation, Ademola Tajudeen popularly called â€˜Awokoâ€™.
According to him, â€œwe have spared nothing in creating a music video that will stand the test of time wherever in the world it is seen.
“There are lots of colour, exceedingly beautiful women and a lot of dance, both traditional and contemporary. If you know Chief Tony Okoroji, then you know that I have worked with a man who does not accept mediocrity. He only goes for the very best.”
The release of â€˜Oriaku New Schoolâ€™ follows the release by TOPS in 2017 of Tony Okorojiâ€™s â€˜Happy Musicâ€™ which has become a major caller ring back tone favorite across many platforms.
