Nigerian singer and songwriter, Ikuforiji Olaitan Abdulrahman, known professionally by his stage name Oxlade, makes his first appearance in a Nollywood movie titled ‘Without You’, a short film.
Produced by Adeola Omooba, the short film centres on an unusual love story. It questions how far we are willing to go for love.
The 1121 company and Abazee productions collaboration will see Oxlade star alongside ‘Riona’ star Chioma Okafor, Nzube Ezikeoha, and Isaac Egberamen. It launches on YouTube on November 21, 2021.
Born in Lagos state, Oxlade’s love for music started growing while he was still in secondary school.
Two years after he got admitted into the university, he dropped out so that he could focus on his musical career; a decision which did not go down well with his father who stopped catering to his needs.
Chocolate City rapper, Blaqbonez on hearing Oxlades single, sour, saw potential in him and decided to feature him in his next project.
His fame grew after his iconic collaboration with Blaqbonez, on ‘Mamiwota’.
Thereafter, he featured on Fireboy DML’s hit single, Sing.
