The mainstream is way too saturated at the moment with the regular names, regular sounds who get all the airplays, endorsement deals and attend almost every show in the land. It’s time to shine the spotlight on some of the new and upcoming acts that we feel could give them a run for their money in 2016. Some have been around for quite a while, some have gone down that path of almost giving up while some are very much close to getting that mainstream break, the talent is however undeniable and we shine a light on one that can stand out from the pack.
Akintunde Tolulope Gabriel who goes by the stage name OluwaLargess has been around for a while, the Maestronic Ent. artiste released his official debut single titled ‘No Time’ in October 2014, this song enjoyed decent spins on radio stations and caught the attention of more than a few. He has since gone on to release more singles such as Selense and Jollificate which is almost a mainstream hit and shot a decent video to go alongside it.
Largess has potentials and his sound is appealing. He recently released two new singles with a personal favorite being Fade Away ft Niniola and Ire ft Oritsefemi in anticipation of his debut album. Do not judge him by his size, he does move quite well on stage. Oluwalargess might just be on his way to becoming that artiste that will be a household name sooner than later.
