Oxlade is a Nigerian singer basesed in Lagos. He is currently (2019) studying History and international relations at the Lagos state University, (LASU) where he was known for his love for music.
Music started at a very tender age for him instilling a passion which he never gave up on, a passion which was also evident at the Lagos State University (LASU) where he studied History and International Relations, often times showcasing and winning the recognition of his colleagues with his gifted voice.
Oxlade has been pursuing music right from his secondary school days despite disapproval from his father and ran it up until he gained admission into the Lagos State University (LASU).Like many other Nigerian artistes, Oxlade started his journey from the church alongside creative videographer Naya Effects and became the junior choir master not long after.
He was chastised for making secular music by his maternal uncles. This, also, greatly affected his activities in church.
He dropped out of LASU two years after enrollment into the History and International Relations department. This move didn’t sit well with his father, who in turn stopped catering for his needs.
He stopped recording and was just about to give up on music before Blaqbonez heard his previous single ‘Sour’ and arranged to work with him.
Again, a much needed encouragement was given by singer Davido, who sent him messages on Instagram filled with words of encouragement after he listened to one of his songs. According to him, the messages came at the point where he was about giving up on music.
Describing his kind of music as Afro-fusion. Oxlade also dabbles with a bit of country, & soul all with roots from his homeland thus expressing his soul through his country's music.
With songs such as happiness, Ojoro, questionnaire, the hit song "Sing" and the widely accepted “Mamiwota “ featuring BlaqBonez. Oxlade is fast becoming a force to reckon with in the industry, a fact reinforced by his latest hit and first official single "Shugar", it is safe to say The Ox is here to stay.
