Oxlade is one of the best youth acts in Nigeria. He started his musical career at an early age and faced all the challenges that presented themselves. His parents did not support his choice of career, but that did not discourage him. For this part, we will write about Oxlade’s biography, age, record label, and net worth.
Oxlade’s real name is Olaitan Abdulrahman of Ikuforia, but he prefers to be called Oxlade. He was born on April 22, 1997, and is 23 years old since 2020. He once studied history and international relations at Lagos State University (LASU) although he later dropped out of school two years after enrolling to pursue a musical career.
His father did not support his actions and ceased to be responsible for his expenses. Oxlade lost his mother at a young age and had to live with his grandmother. He later had a job in an internet cafe where he raised money to make a living.
Oxlade, who is currently registered with Knostra Music, Substrate Music, and Entertainment, was a singer in the church. He sang in church at the age of 10 and was kind enough to become a junior choirmaster. However, things changed when Oxlade moved to secular music. He received criticism from his uncles, who did not appreciate the fact that he stopped singing in church.
He continued in the musical selection until high school and until his registration at the Lagos State University (LASU). Leaving school was not good for his father, who stopped looking after him. Oxlade almost gave up music until Blaqbonez heard his single “Sour” and planned to work with him.
Oxlade received additional encouragement from Nigerian music icon Davido via social media. According to Oxlade, Davido sent him just when he needed to surrender. While Oxlade is known for its blend of afro-beat and soul, he has several hit singles on his recordings, including “Happiness,” “Ojoro,” “Greed,” “Questionnaire,” “Sing,” “Mamiwota,” and his widely acclaimed song “Shugar.” Other singles including Oxlade had great success;
- Tables Turn
- Hold on
- Causing Trouble

Oxlade earned a place in the Hall of Fame when he appeared in Mamiwota de Blaqbonez. In 2020, he released his first EP album called Oxygene composed of 6 songs. Throughout his career, Oxlade has collaborated with Rekaado Banks, DJ Tunez, Melvitto, and Jinmi Abduls, and even international artists such as Skengdo, Sneakbo, and AM on a song called “Brixton Boy.” Oxlade performed during the Davido 2018 concert at Arena O2.
