OKENYO UNLEASHES ONE OF THE BIGGEST SONGS YOU’LL HEAR THIS YEAR!
With power, truth and vulnerability, OKENYO gives you the unapologetic ‘WOMAN’S WORLD’. Its wry wit and complex wordplay ignites a movement; addressing the hypocrisies that women should try and fit into a man’s world, and calls upon the camaraderie of the female force.
“You can call me feminazi, go ahead and call me nasty”, OKENYO raps with no regrets.
There is a valiant self-awareness in the lyricism and performance throughout ‘Woman’s World’, and even when the layers are stripped back to an individual vocal line, a defiant resolve remains in the message. OKENYO identifies the misrepresentation of gender and racial stereotypes in the current political and socials spheres worldwide. She establishes herself as a fearless artist, with integrity as well as a sense of humour.
Enlisting co-producer Lionel Towers (Gypsy and the Cat), OKENYO has taken her time to mould and refine a bold new sound. Exploring fresh and fiercely unique productions, the beat feels as radical as the sentiment in which it carries.
When only a large platform will do for such a big song, WOMAN’S WORLD landed a worldwide premiere on Beats 1 with Ebro Darden on July 18; a significant step for such a young and up-and-coming artist.
