What Legacy Does Oxlade Want To Create In The Music Industry?


Singer Ikuforiji  Olaitan Abdulrahman popularly known as Oxlade has explained the legacy he wants to create in the Nigerian music industry.

The “Ku Lo Sa” crooner says he takes time before  releasing songs because he is more interested in making classic songs that will stand the test of time instead of hit songs that vanish after a short while.’

Oxlade said:

“If you don’t take your time to create some songs or create anything, it’s gonna sound rushed. If you rushed in, you rushed out. I am not looking for hits, I am looking for classics. I mean, ‘Away’ is four or three years old, but it’s still banging. Ku Lo Sa’ is a year old, it still bangs. ‘O2’ from nowhere, it just blew up last year. These songs are old, but they still have value right now.”

Continuing the ‘Away’ singer said “I don’t want to mention names but I know of a lot of artistes that dropped songs last year that blew up but they are gone now. I’m not trying to impress, I’m trying to leave a long lasting image in your head.”

Legendary Canadian singer, songwriter and rapper, Drake, once explained the difference between hit and classic songs.

According to Drake:

“A hit record is one that catches one’s attention at the moment. It can sound great in the summer and then it gets a little colder. When you then have to go back to school, to work, that same record doesn’t appeal to you anymore. But timeless or classic records transcends all seasons, years; you stay loving it.”
