Nigerian-born Ireland based musician Offica has unveiled the official visuals for his latest single, “Living Proof.”
Teaming up with Krizzy Beats, who crafts a mellow yet upbeat instrumental, Offica delivers an introspective track that reflects on his life’s blessings, including his success as an artist and recent graduation.
The song kicks off with Offica proclaiming, “Who said rap don’t pay for an Irish rapper,” and the accompanying visuals provide a glimpse into his fast-paced lifestyle, featuring scenes of him jetting off to new destinations and electrifying live performances.
Since first dropping the anime-sampling Naruto Drillings four years ago, the Nigerian-born, Irish-raised Offica has redefined what it means to be an Irish rapper, breaking records with a run of classic singles and game changing freestyles. During this period, he has dropped tracks with YouTube phenomenon KSI, achieved the highest streaming UK Drill freestyle of all time (120m+ streams), and streamed a further 80m across his remaining catalogue, all without dropping a full-length project.
Offica has built a committed global audience across his own platforms, with fans drawn both by his surreal sense of humour, his fusion of Yoruba language with Irish slang, and his precision-tooled ability to lead new musical trends.
Now the rapper is ready to drop a two-part album that takes in his foundations as a rapper and pushes in an all-new direction. Part one, Hokage, focuses on his ‘classic’ sound of anime-infused party drill contrasting with more introspective rap, and part two, titled Hokage in Lagos, pushes into a new direction of Afrobeats-infused drill, based on tunes sampling the likes of Wizkid, D’banj and Psquare.
