Nigerian igbo rapper, Kolaboy has delighted us with his melodious tunes. Yet, with his latest venture, Kolapiano, he successfully fuses his people’s culture and music with the Amapiano genre, originating from South Africa. This creative fusion was made possible through the collaboration with Caution LXE and marked by the soulful introduction of “Oja” by Ojadiligbo, which catapulted this unique sound into the mainstream Nigerian music scene.
Kolaboy’s lyrics and delivery convey his keen observations of society. He emphasizes the importance of mental well-being, which serves as the central theme of his Kolapiano EP – escapism.
While some may overlook his contributions, Kolaboy’s impact is unmistakable. He tirelessly promotes Igbo culture on the global stage, whether during his tours in Ghana or his frequent performances across Nigeria. He stands as a cultural custodian, a reminder of our roots that we should never forget.
