Mide Michael & Naya Akanji - Ojoro
YouthsHub Music Presents this exciting new single ‘Ojoro’ by popular fast rising Mide Michael & Naya Akanji.
Ojoro, a track that talks about love, has its narrative centered around the artistes’ respective love interests. The Chorus/ Hook which goes “Ojoro, Ojoro, Ojoro cancel Ojoro” describes how they would not fail to retaliate if the significant other is caught cheating.
Mide Michael lays the first verse, giving Naya the perfect space to execute & finish the track. The artiste creates a distinctive afro indie-jazz love ballad, as the production lies between those genres. It is produced by Lordknowz & popular Afrobeats artiste/producer, Jinmi Abduls. It was also mixed engineered by Lordknowz.
