Ikuforiji Olaitan Abdulrahman is a Nigerian singer-songwriter who performs under the name of Oxlade. He dabbles with different genres of music, including Afro-fusion, R&B and alternative pop.
Oxlade first gained recognition when Drake posted a screenshot on his Instagram story of him listening to Oxlade's song "Away." The following month, "Away" came in at #23 on Rolling Stone's list of the 50 Best Songs of 2020.
Oxlade premiered "Ku Lo Sa" on A Colors Show, a creative music platform that showcases outstanding talent from around the world. Colors uploaded his energetic performance on June 10, 2022 on their YouTube channel. It became Oxlade's first international hit.
"Ku Lo Sa" is a romantic love song containing a mixture of English and Pidgin English lyrics. Oxlade sings of being smitten by his love interest and he wants her to "pull over Ku Lo Sa." Ku Lo Sa is a Yoruba word (the language of the singer's people in Southwestern Nigeria), which is like "closer" in English.
Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" was just a minor hit when it was released in 1968, but a 2002 remix made the song a global smash, taking it to #1 in a number of countries, including Australia and the UK.
