The year 2020 hasn’t really been good for most people but some persons have been experiencing growth and success notwithstanding. The music industry has been on the climb this period and Zilla Oaks seem to have secured his spot on the ladder. In a nutshell, year 2020 hasn’t been a bad one for music artist and performer Zilla, as he has been on the chart since the start of his year.
His first single of the year ‘OGINI’ was released in March and it’s no doubt one of the best Rap songs so far from the city of Abuja in 2020. He collaborated on the track with Dremo of DMW and PrettyBoy DO who recently dropped his Album. Ogini means “What’s the matter?” in native Igbo language and it had some hot bars and punch lines from popular rapper Dremo.
Zilla didn’t hesitate to give his fans the opportunity to hear from him again so he dropped a melodious rap single ‘No Conversate’ and featured Prettyboy DO, Mojo of Chop Life Crew and also his label mate Marv OTM. In No Converate, Zilla seem to be telling us that if the conversation isn’t about money, then we don’t have to talk much. This single has been doing well on the chart and still climbing.
Zilla is currently the most featured rapper by other artists from the FCT in year 2020. One notable feature is his vocals on Eeskay’s ‘Holligan’ which is currently the No1 song on our chart. Zilla has also worked with Drayko, Marv OTM & Malik Bawa and Jungle by YB sounds.
During our conversation with Zilla Oaks, he couldn’t hide his excitement on how well his latest singles are doing on streaming platforms, with Ogini hitting over 80k plays and No Conversate gaining over 120k plays on Apple music. All these brings the artist close to a total of over 200k plays on the popular streaming platform. Zilla’s fan base has also experienced exponential growth in recent time as a result of his many wins.
Zilla was hesitant in giving us much information on his next moves and future projects but when he finally did, he said we shouldn’t be surprised if we see BurnaBoy on his next track. He said we should also expect visuals of his recently released singles.
Zilla is an Abuja based Rapper under the management of Egdemax. He started music professionally in 2016 and as we can see he is not giving it a rest.
