LONDON, (CelebrityAccess) — Songwriter, singer, and producer Odunsi (The Engine) has pacted with Warner Music’s publishing unit Warner/Chappell Music for worldwide distribution.
A native of Lagos, Odunsi, whose real name is Bowofoluwa Odunsi, is at the forefront of the Afro-fusion, which draws upon a wide variety of sounds, including R&B, reggae, and soul to create a new flavor of EDM.
He scored a critical and popular hit with his first EP “Time Of Our Lives” which he released in 2016. It featured Ghanaian Afro electronic artist Okuntakinte, as well as the Nigerian artists Dami Oniru and Black Magic.
He followed “Time” up with a series of singles that includes Situationship’ ft. AYLØ which hit the top 5 on Spotify’s Viral Track list and ‘Mine’ which featured vocals from London-based R&B vocalist Malika Hamza.
His track ‘In The Morning’ was released by Universal Music Nigeria on a one-single deal and saw him team up with DOZ of the 8 0 Sounds production team.
Odunsi is currently in the studio, working on his forthcoming LP “Rare.”
“Odunsi is a fresh and impressive young talent. He has shaken up the music scene in Nigeria and is now attracting global attention. The music he is writing sounds incredibly unique and I’m excited to see how he’ll grow as a songwriter here with us at Chappell,” Warner/Chappell’s Amber Davis said.
