BankyOnDBeatz' 'Omoluabi' Is Your New Hazy, Late Night Jam

Listen to the new single from the buzzing Nigerian producer featuring Jinmi Abduls and Tobi Sunmola.

BankyOnDBeatz has been on a roll since the release of his Fuego Senoras EP last year and the more recent "Afromadtown" single.

The rising Nigerian artist now returns with "Omoluabi," an ultra smooth jam that will ease you into weekend mode.

The new track is built on a hypnotizing, grooving beat over which Lagos singer Jinmi Abduls and Manchester-based Nigerian Tobi Sunmola—one of our Indie Artists You Need to Listen To—go in over.


BankyOnDBeatz broke down the meaning behind the track's title for OkayAfrica below:

"Omoluabi, the child of good character (Iwa), hard work and respect, A child of noble pedigree and impeccable character; an adjectival phrase combined from the words 'Omo + ti + Olu-iwa + bi' as its components. Literally translated and taken separately, omo means 'child,' ti means 'that or which,' Olu-iwa means the chief or master of Iwa (character), bi means 'born'. When combined, Omoluabi translates as 'the baby begotten by the chief of Iwa.'"

Listen to "Omoluabi," which is out today and available across all platforms from OkaymusicOkaymusic.
