“Assembled real brothers, all from the eastern part of my beautiful country Nigeria. Tribalism is a major tool used by politicians to divide and cause chaos between the beautiful people of my country. I love and respect each and every tribe the same way as mine.

“Oxlade From Africa” (the album) is not just a body of work, it’s meant to be a meditation for Africans at large and lovers of this special continent.” -Oxlade
