Bio

Okenyo's debut EP 'Mirage' is out very soon...

OKENYO is
Her expressive and achingly beautiful melodies invite listeners on a journey through the underworld, a mirror world of reality where personal stories meet ancient mythology.

Enigmatic, mysterious and evocative in her lyricism and storytelling, OKENYO, emerges from the pack as a uniquely charismatic artist, part of a new generation of powerful women set to make their mark.

Happy: “...a modern-day Cleopatra, exuberant with confidence, grace and a fierce sense of style and attitude.”

Good new tune from Okenyo here. Doesn't go too hard and force itself on you but its consistent pulse does all the charming.

Got a real stream-of-consciousness vocals thing going on yet manages to remain really catchy. Really cool vibe. Bit of a Nneka feel to it as well. Dat some cool stuff Okenyo.

Sounds like our very own home grown, "Ibeyi." A voice of angels and easily recognizable. If I didn't know any better, I would have thought this was signed to Young Turks.
