New Heat: 19th Street – Oya

share on:

Chykes (Chike Nwafor) is the rapper & Mobaz (Micheal Bazuaye), the singer. Together they are known as 19th Street and are currently managed by Entertainment.  They met in their 1st year at the University of Benin and discovered their common love for music, and then went ahead to form the group. The name ‘19th Street’ was adopted from the name of the street where they live in school.

They are both Human beat-boxes and dance quite well. Word is that they are still unsigned to any label and produce all their songs themselves. With so much talent, one can only say that Sky’s The Limit (R.I.P. Big Poppa) for this duo.

Peep their 1st single – ‘Oya‘ which I can only describe as music made up of futuristic elements fused together in a DJ Booth while on an African Safari. Quite catchy and doesn’t sound like your everyday 9ja production.


My Rating: 7/10
