Oxlade (real name: Ikuforiji Abdulrahman Olaitan) was raised in Lagos by his grandma (a deaconess) and 4 uncles. This upbringing prepared him for being an artist. “I grew up in a musically inclined family,” he says. From singing acapella with his family at morning devotions to moving into and heading the church choir (children, teen, and adult), church-boy Oxlade was slowly albeit unknowingly sowing a seed into his future music career. “I never wanted to be an artist,” he says. “I never took it personally, I didn’t even know what I was learning was going to help me in the future.”

Supporting the classic song with a fun and colourful visual put Oxlade on the fashion radar. And now, he’s continuing in that same trail on this project with Red Edit. From ultra-cool print leather outfits to elevated casual looks, enjoy the dope looks from the shoot. Also, catch the full interview here.
