Irish Drill Rappers Sello & Offica Unveil Jumpy Anthem “Oggy”
11 Sep 2021
Ireland’s very own Drill rappers Sello and Offica have joined forces for a huge anthem named, “Oggy”.
Accommodating an eerie yet cinematic production from ProdByMax, “Oggy” infuses traditional Irish sounds in with the African culture, alongside the modern-day Drill sound that has been taking over recently. Creating the ultimate wheel-up worthy track, Sello attacks the beat anthem-esc hook and hard-hitting verses before Offica later joins with a vigorous verse, adding that extra “oomph” to the already booming track.
Speaking on the release Sello commented, “The theme of the song is black Irishness and I came to studio one day with that message in mind as it was a big topic in Ireland at the time about how native Irish are not aware of the layers to black Irishness. So it was important for me and my manager Gino, to put an emphasis on black Irishness and came up with the hook within an hour. Putting Offica on the song was strategic because he’s also very connected to his roots and wanted to represent the people connected to their heritage and culture. He added his Nigerian Yoruba lyrics within his drill wordplay, allowing him to proudly showcase his Nigerian side while I continue to stand up for all my black Irish peers.”
