OKENYO – 10 Feet Tall
Okenyo announced herself in 2015 with the wry and colourful ‘Just
A Story’, turning heads here and Internationally. It was featured
in Clash (UK), Noisey (US) and Hunger TV (UK), who described
Okenyo as “Equal parts Frank Ocean, Grace Jones and M.I.A.”
2016 began with a bang, joining labelmate Urthboy and the
supreme Sampa The Great on the warm and uplifting ‘Second
Heartbeat’—a favourite on triple j and community radio alike.
‘10 Feet Tall’ sees her collaborating with producer Badcop (Tkay
Maidza’s ‘Brontosaurus’ and ‘Handle My Ego’).
With a mission statement of igniting strength and spirit in the
women around her, she explains the meaning behind the song:
“Sometimes before you know it you’re stuck in a way of living and it
feels almost impossible to make a change, to break habits. But if it
isn’t enough, why stay the same? 10 Feet Tall is a manifesto for the
future: stand tall and claim your power.”
