The debut EP of fast up and coming hip-hop star, OG Mage has been slated for release on the 7th of September, 2021. It comes hot on the heels of the artist’s release party and will be available for digital streaming and download across all digital platforms.
Alter Ego is composed of six tracks, each with its colourful tune and notable features from talented artists. This project is a unique blend of Hip-hop/Rap and Afro-Fusion, delivered alongside witty lyricism. It contains something for every listener but retains enough of the artist identity people can connect with.
Samuel ‘OG Mage’ Ogaba, a native of Benue state in Nigeria, has been around the block since he started making music in 2014. He is a graduate of Information and Media Technology from Federal University of Technology, Minna and currently works as a software engineer and visual artist.
The 26-year-old artist, influenced by rap heavyweights like Nas and J. Cole, displays lyrical dexterity, and soulful themes in a style that is unique to him. One would also find the artist’s careful observations about his environment. The music is quite personal as it is entertaining.
"OG Mage’s music is the kind of intellectual that makes you want to party. Even if you are not listening. There is something to dance to"
"A meaningful project with intelligent lyrics and fanciful wordplay."
