About “Poison”

Created by Topceejoseph 10 month s ago

The song finds Octavian celebrating his African heritage after a recent trip to Nigeria reconnected him with his roots. “Poison” takes plenty of inspiration from the Afrobeats movement, adding murky and emotive vocals throughout. The song centers around the unhealthy and addicting nature of love. The guest vocals from Santi and Obongjayar make for an authentic and moving addition. The new release follows Octavian’s recent collaboration with Skepta for “Papi Chulo” and after he dropped off some ominous bars in his “Death of a Traitor Freestyle”. The track was produced by Take A Daytrip and enlists rising Afrobeat artists, Obongjayar and Santi. The caption of the video ensures that it was shot ahead for the current coronavirus pandemic and encourages everyone to stay safe and practice social distancing. The video is full of memorable and artistic cinematography with Octavian getting lost in the drink while Obongjayar floats in a swimming pool. The music video was directed by Crowns & Owls.
