Watch DJ Speedsta’s New Music Video for ‘Oneida’ Featuring Una Rams, C Tea and Buffalo Soulja

DJ Speedsta shares new music video.

DJ Speedsta's new music video shows him and a lady friend enjoying some quality time together. Performance scenes of the South African hip-hop deejay's collaborators, Una Rams, C Tea and Buffalo Soulja, intercut with scenes of Speedsta and the lady surrounded by vegetation in what looks like a resort.


"Oneida" takes a lot of inspiration from Afro beats and is danceable, a perfect fit for the summer. The song is the lead single to DJ Speedsta's latest EP which is befittingly titled Palm Trees & Pretty Girls. The project consists of six songs that will teleport you to a world like the one where Speedsta and the model are in the music video for "Oneida."

R&B, Afrobeats and pop mesh with hip-hop on Palm Trees & Pretty Girls, creating a perfect soundtrack for the festive season. New and familiar names like Patty Monroe, B3nchMarQ, Rick Tyler and Kooldrink appear on Palm Trees & Pretty Girls.

The project is the second release from Speedsta in 2019. Earlier this year, he released a nine-track EP titled Bottlebrush Str.

Interview

A Candid Conversation With Olamide & Fireboy DML

We talk to the Nigerian stars about the hardest lessons they've learned, best advice they've ever been given and what Nigeria means to them.

Olamide and Fireboy DML have been working together for three years, but the first time they sit down to do an interview together is hours after they arrive in New York City on a promo tour.

It's Fireboy's first time in the Big Apple — and in the US — and the rain that's pouring outside his hotel doesn't hinder his gratitude. "It's such a relief to be here, it's long overdue," he tells OkayAfrica. "I was supposed to be here last year, but Covid stopped that. This is a time to reflect and refresh. It's a reset button for me."

Olamide looks on, smiling assuredly. Since signing Fireboy to his YBNL Nation label in 2018, he's watched the soulful young singer rise to become one of Nigeria's most talked-about artists — from his breakout single, "Jealous," to his debut album Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps, hit collabs with D.Smoke and Cuppy, and his sophomore release, Apollo, last year.

Even while he shares his own latest record, UY Scuti, with the world, Olamide nurtures Fireboy's career with as much care and attention as he does his own, oscillating between his two roles of artist and label exec seamlessly. His 2020 album Carpe Diem is the most streamed album ever by an African rap artist, according to Audiomack, hitting over 140 million streams. When Olamide signed a joint venture with US-based record label and distribution company, Empire, in February last year he did so through his label, bringing Fireboy and any other artist he decides to sign along for the ride, and establishing one of the most noteworthy deals on the continent.

Below, Olamide & Fireboy DML speak to OkayAfrica about their mutual admiration for each other, what makes them get up in the morning and how they switch off.
