The Nigerian star is back with his first album. Nigerian musical heavyweight Otega is back to top the charts with his latest release, Really Bhard (All In One Body).
The “All Genre” icon proves to be getting better with age as this album gives fans a taste of how wide his reach and influence on the Nigerian music scene has truly been.
Appearances from friends, proteges and comrades like Bella Shmurda, Mohbad, Miz Kiss, Trod, Degree and many more, further highlight and emphasize his well-deserved label as one of the best to do it.
Of the album, he says, “The project is a reflection of my mind, and also the current sound brewing underground in Nigeria. It’s a combination of a lot of traditional elements and also a sound from Nigeria Afrobeats, which is getting a lot of attention in the Nigeria Industry.”
Infamous for his ability to rap and sing stories in English, Yoruba and Pidgin, Otega pushes the envelope even further with Really Bhard.
From exploring his abilities as a vocalist, traditional street rap elements clear in track “Kosere”, to radio-ready Afropop bops “Ginger” and “Keys To The City”, fans are sure to be satisfied with the diverse genre-bending album.
Really Bhard comes as Otega’s first album release. “Music has always been my saviour, so I thought for once I should share with the world what happiness sounds like to me,” Otega says.
