Oluseun Jacob is like many musicians but he has special interest in afro singer, Segun Akinlolu, aka Beautiful Nubia. It is thus not surprising that when his (Jacob’s) talent began to flower, he began to take after the dreadlocked artiste.
This is evident in the first album of the emerging singer stage-named Oluko. This is titled Bowale, with five tracks that address various areas of life. They are Good Morning, Africa, Enu Agba, Tiwa n Tiwa and the title song, Bowale, which is a romantic shot.
Oluko started as an instrumentalist before staking his voice on air. He says the transformation is very promising.
He explains, “Normally, there will be challenges, like the ones we encountered when we were producing the album and the video I earlier released. But the zeal to succeed and joy of realising one’s dream are the driving force.
“My skill in handling the guitar and keyboard makes song composition very easy for me. Most times, inspiration for songs comes to me whenever I’m on the keyboard, handling guitar or listening to music.”
According to the singer who hails from Ikoyi Ijumu, Kogi State, Enu Agba video was inspired by the decadence in the Nigeria system and the incessant clamour by the youth for responsible and responsive government.
