Viral loop sensation OP (formerly known as Olofepence) is releasing his new hip-hop/rap single entitled, ‘Flex’ on 8 October independently. OP has achieved accolades that have already put him in the spotlight through different mediums. OP started his entertainment career from the age of 16, creating short comedy flicks on YouTube gaining popularity with his show The Adventures of Olofe with over 200,000 views and his Vine receiving over five million loops to date. It was not long until several of OP’s comedy sketches went viral on Link Up TV, GRM Daily, and SBTV. He was also featured as the main actor in ‘Bashy’ – ‘These Are The Songs’ music video with over 1.5 millions views and more recently being featured in the music video by J Hus hit ‘Lean and Bop’ which has amassed over ten million views on Youtube. This growing popularity led Uber to approach him with a lucrative partnership involving his Instagram and Snapchat accounts.
Inspired by the likes of Rick James, 50 Cent, Bobby Brown, and Michael Jackson, OP found his passion for singing at the age of 19, releasing his first single ‘Half Naija Half Congo’, which was featured on Destination Afrobeats.
Want to know more about ‘Flex’? Hear it straight from OP himself:
“Flex is about me showing youth especially that you can literally do anything you want—not in a way that everything’s perceived and that. I am showing them at its rawest form. The way like trappers (drug dealers that rap) usually have jewellery and stuff and anything other than that you are perceived as ‘not really cool’ or a ‘nerd’. I am showing that you don’t necessarily have to be selling drugs to do the same things that these drugs dealers perceive as ‘riches’, but doing it through your own way. Nowadays people are accustomed into thinking schools and education is the only way out—so when that’s the case, they never really truly experience what it is they really want to do or really want to become.”
With a growing social media following, OP’s new single, ‘Flex’ will be available to buy on iTunes, Amazon and streamed on VEVO, Spotify and more.
