Exploring new sounds, “Ku Lo Sa” is a summer infused track is backed with a strong vocal choir melody now characteristic of the artist’s Afropop sound. Oxlade has built a solid profile over the past two years thanks to a pop, colorful yet edgy image, and a fiercely addictive afropop sound.

With a strong following on social media, Oxlade is becoming a prominent figure globally. With the potential of becoming one of the biggest music exports from Nigeria, the Lagos native is preparing to release a new project soon.

“Anyone who listens can connect to my lyrics, and in turn, it connects me with anyone who is listening. My music is for people who take what I’m saying personally because it truly is representative of day-to-day life.” [Oxlade]
Oxlade broke out with the hit “Away” which received cosigns by the likes of Drake and Naomi Campbell and was named one of the “Top 50 songs of 2020” by Rolling Stone – making Oxlade the only Nigerian artist featured on that list.

Born Ikuforiji Abdulrahman Olaitan and raised in Lagos, Oxlade studied History & International Relations at Lagos State University. He started his musical journey in a choir and put out his first song on Soundcloud in 2017. He caught the attention of everyone the following year with the release of his first official single “Shugar”, which instantly caught the ears of music fans across the nation.

Oxlade went on to release one of the biggest songs of the decade “Away” which catapulted him to major stardom, getting him featured on many top magazines and press issues around the world. The song was named one of the “Top 50 songs of the year 2020” by Rolling Stones, which made him the only Nigerian artist on the list.

Since then, he is one of the major faces of Afrobeat for new generations and is dedicated to spread this movement. In 2020, Oxlade was one of the most important figures of “Art X Lagos”, a premier fashion show in West Africa that aims to spread the beauty of African culture. Oxlade is also a human rights activist, running campaigns which stand for better treatment of his fellow Nigerians from the national government. With new music, visuals and explosive live performances to come, Oxlade is preparing to achieve his goal: becoming the biggest music export from Nigeria.

Key points

  • FTX is diving into the foreign exchange derivatives world.
  • It launched a new perpetual swap tied to the so-called FTX Dollar Spot Index.

Crypto exchange FTX is expanding its remit into the world of foreign exchange derivatives trading, listing a perpetual future tied to a U.S. dollar spot index, the company said Monday. 

While crypto markets have been stuck in the doldrums, foreign exchange traders have recently enjoyed a bout of volatility. The U.S. dollar, for its role, is hovering near all-time highs, while the pound sterling has gyrated amid the chaotic rollout of U.K. Prime Minister Liz Truss’s economic programme. Turbulence has also hit the Japanese yen and the euro. 

As for FTX’s new perpetual contract, it will be based on the so-called FTX Dollar Spot Index. It is designed to “track the performance of a basket of 4 leading global currencies versus the U.S. Dollar: the euro, Japanese yen, Canadian dollar, and British pound.”
