Like most, Bode Blaq forayed into music from secondary school miming to songs of Tupac, Eminem & Lil Wayne. For those who don’t know him, Nigerian alternative/hip-hop musician and self- taught visual artist ‘Ogungbemi Olabode Stephen popularly known as Bode Blaq was born on 25th October and he hails from Ekiti state. Given that he had debuted projects since last year till now, it may be premature to immediately expect another body of work from him in this age of digital releases.

Bode Blaq’s debut single titled ”worry dem” was released June 2017 which was followed by his massive party hit titled “PARTY ANIMAL” which was released in September in the year 2017. And followed by the visual release of party animal that was directed by Paul Gambit.

Bode Blaq has proven to be quite euphonious with his pseudo- Alternative take on Afro-pop, heard on his previously released singles like “Party Animal, Worry Dem, Balu and Stop Shouting.

But his latest effort is more expansive, allowing him to cover several themes like talking about people living above their social status. As he just released single for the summer titled ‘ON KPA’. This has got everyone talking already on all media platforms.
