Bio

At just 17, Matt Cicero had already reached acclaim from local and global tastemakers, leaving the kid overwhelmed at the praise for a single demo.

His vocal capabilities freshly thrust him into performance early in this journey, first with LA crew ILLEGAL CIVILIZATION, then soon after supporting international acts ABRA and TOKIMONSTA. Since his first demo, Ojikae’s vision has undertaken a deep maturity, as Cicero himself has evolved.

His final teen years were spent studying towards a Law degree, which conserved him as a part time musician. His potential was ever-present during this period, building to the inevitable moment he switched all his focus to music. As the project then accelerated, he began working with artists like Maribelle, LUCIANBLOMKAMP, Hopium, Benji Miller (Rejjie Snow), Cosmo’s Midnight and Xavier Dunn.

We've been wondering a long time what you're follow up to Existentiality would sound like and finally we know: emotive, emphatic and good as hell.
