Intro­du­cing Irish Nigeri­an rap artist and musi­cian OG The Story with his brand new solo EP titled Evol­u­tion By Any Means. Raised in Lagos and based in Dub­lin, OG The Story is striv­ing to live up to the mean­ing of his full name Oluse­gun Gbadebo, which trans­lates to “The Lord con­quers, bring the crown” in Yor­uba, which is why, wheth­er it is through the music on this new pro­ject, or as a diversity and inclu­sion lead in his cor­por­ate world, or act­ively tack­ling youth viol­ence in his com­munity, he is pas­sion­ate about attain­ing his highest poten­tial and help­ing oth­ers do the same.

Per­haps best known as one of the found­ing mem­bers of Dub­lin hip hop and afrobeats col­lect­ive Millaz, who rose to prom­in­ence a dec­ade ago and amassed a cult fol­low­ing across Ire­land, OG The Story stepped away from the group and the music scene alto­geth­er a few years ago, to pur­sue new life exper­i­ences that took him across the world to the Middle East and Africa. Fast for­ward to 2020 and the Irish Nigeri­an nat­ive is back home in Dub­lin with new insights, renewed pas­sion, a sharp­er edge, and his brand new record Evol­u­tion By Any Means.

Revered for his cap­tiv­at­ing storytelling, excel­lent word­play, infec­tious flow, and assured cadence, OG The Story’s music takes inspir­a­tion from hip hop legends such as Rakim and Notori­ous BIG, with the likes of Bob Mar­ley and Fela Aniku­lapo Kuti influ­en­cing the essence and mes­saging behind his new work, which wants to carry the listen­er through insight­ful and emotive jour­neys in ways that will inspire them. His new pro­ject Evol­u­tion By Any Means speaks dir­ectly to our cur­rent times, driv­en by themes such as her­it­age, iden­tity, diversity, and self-love.

Speak­ing about the inspir­a­tion behind his Evol­u­tion By Any Means EP, OG The Story says, “This pro­ject is about self-expres­sion and striv­ing to be the best ver­sion of myself, which has led me to explore key themes includ­ing iden­tity, con­scious­ness, and self-love. This EP is telling the story of my jour­ney to achieve my highest poten­tial while delving into a vari­ety of life exper­i­ences with the insights and les­sons gained from them. The rela­tion­ship between the indi­vidu­al and com­munity is also touched on in par­al­lel to the key themes of the pro­ject, with the hope to inspire oth­ers to be their best selves”.
