She burst into the music scene with her exceptional voice which echoes a wave of new sound soothing to the ears. Raised by her father who also was a singer, at a young age she witnessed so many performances by her father which played a pivotal role in her development as a singer and songwriter. she infuses lyrical deftness in her sound which somewhat sets her apart, her first single “Run” was released to great acceptance by fans and critics alike. She previously dropped a freestyle titled blind children which talks about life as a lady and what they go through and how much people ignore them.

Olami has recently released a new project titled ‘Outside’. With each song revolving around peace, tranquility, soul-searching, breakthrough and victory. This is  a career-defining compilation of soulful, mind blowing yet soothing songs of melodic sequences intertwined in harmony. Outside is a befitting title for a compilation so gracious and enthralling.  All songs produced by El-Nino, a talented producer with flair and finesse, the hallmark of his music production.

After the release of her first single “Run”,  Olami followed up with the release of “Air” which is part of this compilation, she featured Bizzonthetrack, a song that got positive reviews from critics, got featured on music blogs and magazines and this was the impetus she needed to create this magical, thrilling and exciting compilation of beautiful songs. Come! Break free, follow this trail of peace, listen to this compilation, BE OUTSIDE!

LITTLE RED-  The first track on this EP. A song of hope and perseverance in accordance to self-worth and confidence as one journeys through the woods of life with lyrics meticulously conjured to describe these themes.

AIR- Music is life. It’s relativity to humanity and existence makes it a beautiful array of sound,melody, harmony and its other elements that makes it whole. Air, second single by Afro-soul songstress Olami featuring Bizzonthetrack eviscerates the entirety of Music in its pristine and immaculate form. A song with so much power and relativity, with lyrics such as “Satan be gone… need some air” this is a plea to banish demons that incites unrest and chaos within a soul.

FINISHING LINE-  The finish line signifies the end of a race, or perhaps the beginning of another. Champions look forward to the finish line with enthusiasm and zeal.  Olami with her impeccable songwriting ability is telling her own story of the finish line which is relatable, amusing and soul captivating. Is this the end of a journey or the beginning of another?

ZION- A song of destination and salvation. A Reggae tune at its best, endowed with alluring vocal dexterity. Feel Zion come to you as you listen keenly and open your mind to wonders it reveals.

FREEDOM- The malleability of Afrobeat was put to use on this song. Olami with help of Phyl and Yhemhi forged this beat to perfection with rhythm and harmony, carefully riding on the sonic wave to churn out a song of freedom.
