Singer Michael Oloyede Unveils New Single “Gbamiloju” (SEE DETAILS)
Michael Oloyede is excited to announce the release of his new single, “Gbamiloju“, which went live worldwide on Friday, August 19th, 2022. This single is from his maiden album set to be released in November 2022.
The Lagos based drummer and singer is inspired by social issues plaguing his country and hopes to inspire change through his music.
Gbamiloju meaning “defraud me” pinpoints the constant failure of the ruling elite in fulfilling their obligations to the Nigerian populace. The song envelopes funky horns, energetic beats laced with harmonies over a hypnotizing bass groove – a sound dear to Afropop lovers.
The “Ma Bragado Mi” crooner has carved a niche for himself in the Lagos music scene with his blend of Afrobeat and funk/pop, built on highly rhythmic Yoruba sounds. Some of his earlier songs are instrumentals with improvisations and sparse vocals. His new and upcoming songs are highly interactive and predominantly in Yoruba, and English lyrics.
Michael along with his band the “Native Brains” headlined two sold out shows at the Alliance Francais/Mike Adenuga Center, Lagos, Nigeria
He has performed as a side-man and worked with local and international acts such as Cobhams Asuquo, Kaline, ASA, Ayetoro, Lagbaja, Marcus Miller, Pilani Bubu, SOMI, Omar, Hamish Stewart, just to name a few.
