Oritsefemi Returns With New Single ‘Gbefunmi’
Oritsefemi, whose music significantly promoted the Ajegunle ragga sound, is crucial in developing Afrobeats’ Street music. He’s back with a new song named “Gbefunmi” after decades of dazzling fans.
This frantic single perfectly encapsulates Nigerian street music. The carnival cut “Gbefunmi” will surely get its intended crowd up in a mosh pit. It has no features, is 2 minutes and 53 seconds long, and was released on March 31, 2023, by the MSN GANG/Arogumenite Sounds label. Hysaint produced it.
Oriste Femi, best known for his remake of Fela Kuti’s “Double Wahala” single, is not a newcomer to the music industry. In addition to receiving the Most Popular Song of the Year award, his performance of the song garnered him two nominations for the 2014 City People Entertainment Awards. During the 2014 Nigeria Entertainment Awards, he also won the Indigenous Artist of the Year award. He also released the remix for his version of the song with D’banj in 2014. Additionally, he recorded “Sexy Ladies” with Davido in 2014.
He named Sizzla Kalonji, Daddy Showkey, and Fela Kuti his three most significant influences and inspirations. Even though he has recently collaborated with Portable, it seems Oritse Femi took a break from the music scene because it has taken him some time to produce a body of work that many admirers and music lovers have enjoyed, such as his “Double Wahala” remake. However, since his most recent song, “Gbefunmi,” is enjoyable to listen to, it will be interesting to see how fans react.
