The name Okiemute is not new to the entertainment industry. The pop culture music crooner who just got signed to Flux Factory, spearheaded by music producer, GospelOnDeBeatz, is known for her hit singles, “African Wonder”, “Wosa” and “Money” – collaboration with Moonchild, Sanelly and GospelOnDeBeatz.
Touted as one of the fastest rising stars in African pop culture, her music career took centre stage as a solo artiste when she won the MTN Project Fame West Africa Season nine in 2016, after which she released her first single titled “Good Luving”. She would later release her first EP in 2017, which became a huge success and was produced by some of Africa’s top producers among them, Masterkraft and GospelOnDeBeatz. In 2019, her collaboration “Money” off GospelOnDeBeatz’s album FLUX was at number four on MTV Base top 10 countdown. She recently released her new EP titled A Star and the video of her single Trouble. The four-track EP features “Turn Up”, “Lau Lau”, “Trouble” and “Omokalakuta.” The album is a fusion of Urban-Afro tracks which is an expression of Okiemute’s versatility as an artiste.
Speaking ahead of the release, she said: “Finally, so ecstatic to share this new project with my fans across Africa and around the world. This body of work is a blend of different genres so that everyone could relate with my music. With this EP, I hope to share my new sound to the world and hope you all love it.” Okiemute is set to make her maiden East African media run in December to promote the new EP and meet her music fans in the region. Ahead of the trip, she said: “I have so much planned for you my East African family. I am looking forward to this trip so I can meet all of you and hopefully get to collaborate on a few projects with artistes in the region.
