Ojea takes a walk down the memory lane for the second album by his band Afrococoa

(PRUnderground) September 15th, 2020

After the success of their debut album “Champion from Africa” released in December 2019, which comprised of 17 marvelous songs, the African band Afrococoa are set to woo the listeners with their astounding music once again. Their latest album “OCJ (Ojea’s Continental Joint)” was released in August 2020 and is a beautiful collection of 16 breath-taking tracks. With raw and unique music, Afrococoa is rapidly paving their way through the music industry.

Ojea, the founder of the band Afrococoa, draws inspiration from real incidents or situations for his music. For his latest project “OCJ (Ojea’s Continental Joint)”, the concept is taken from his roots. He tells more about the latest album, “I was inspired by ACJ – Akute Continental Joint – my mom’s first restaurant that she had when I was a small boy, who was located at the front of my house. So I grew up around music, full funhouse, African cultural local settings, and with all the African waves.” He adds, “So I called my second album OCJ to commemorate all this.”

After not being with his family for almost a decade, Ojea decided to visit the place where he has had the most wonderful childhood, and decided to explore different sounds, until he came up with the one that encapsulated all his precious memories and experiences as a child. This is how his mother’s first restaurant helped him to create an album which is the preservation of all his traditions. This album is an amalgamation of old school traditional African sound such as Highlife, and Afrobeat, along with modern-day popular sounds like Reggae, Latino, and Dancehall, which will make the listeners feel the vibe of African culture.

Osagie Ojea is a multifaceted artist who is a singer, songwriter, and composer, who has created a stir in Minsk, Belarus, with his band Afrococoa. Having played over 150 gigs in the past 3 years, Afrococoa is known for its energetic and lively performances. To add more charm to their live performances, two professional dancers accompany the band who combine Afro Dance in their performance.

“We want to convey unity, love, and happiness. We want people to dance on our music and catch the happiness of the moment. We promote unity not only of people but the unity of different music genres. We promote freedom in our lyrics, freedom of thinking, freedom of expressing ourselves, freedom of speech”, says Ojea, telling about his band.

Ojea’s passion for music has led him to a place today where he looked up to and respected. He has built a strong fan base that supports him in his musical journey. He and the other band members of Afrococoa don’t leave any stone unturned in making music that can bring a smile on people’s faces.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Sep 18, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Sep 18, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Sep 18, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

ABC says interview with Epstein accuser wasn't ready to air

Sep 18, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
