  • 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.
