After arriving in New York with a few dollars and change in his pocket to pursue his Ivy League dream at Columbia University, Osekre hasn't looked back.
An upbeat acoustic folk medley that sinks into soulful folk on slow tunes carefully wrapped around excellent lyrics characterizes Osekre's work. He excellently weaves sounds and energy from his "jama" background in Accra through layers of Harlem, Brooklyn, and the midwest. Osekre's stage presence is unrivaled amongst his peers, and while he is a master at working his audience, Osekre is equally adept at interspersing his performances with delightful lyrics and poetry that leaves his audience begging. If Fela Kuti succeeded in bridging Afro tunes,Jazz and Funk, if K'naan found a way to bridge hip hop through Somalian poetry and African culture, Osekre is on a quest to bridging Afropop with Rock and roll, soulful folk and rap. For now however, Osekre and The Lucky Bastards will make you laugh, sing and cry.
