Fresh of the Empawa Africa Initiative and on a new record label, rising R&B singer O.L Music is set and ready to take over the African music industry scene with his smooth silky voice and passion to push soulful sounds into the industry.
In an interview with Ameyaw TV’s JQ, the ‘Selassie’ singer who rose to fame after been selected onto Mr Eazi’s #emPawa100 mentioned that although the hype for R&B sounds is low as compared to that of Afrobeats, Hip-life and others, the future for the genre looks bright as more Africans are slowly embracing it.
Responding to the question of how successful his style has been so far he said: “Yes it has. Ghana is improving than before. Before it was not every sound we listen to but now we’re accepting the new music coming from outside Africa, within Africa etc.”
“The music now has changed so I think R&B right now has a fighting chance than before and I feel I will be one of the people that would make the genre get popularity in Ghana and beyond.” he added.
The singer who is set to release some new projects in the coming months revealed that he takes inspiration from the likes of Amakye Dede and Chris Brown and hopes to have a possible feature with international superstar someday.
Signed onto GAD ONE Records, O.L has two songs making airwaves currently.
