Olofinjana Ademola known musically as Olofin Sniper has declared that he is different from other music artists based on his style and kind of music. Olofin Sniper, who describes himself as a classic kind of artist has shown his versatility by delivering virtually all kinds of genres in his music.
He asserted that his music is Afro-centric because basically he shuffles between genres and has released singles in different genres of music.
“I’ll describe my sound as classic. I am not really fit for any genre; I produce any music that sounds good to people and to myself especially; it doesn’t matter if it’s hip-hop, Afrobeat, Afro pop, rock or country music or Afro rap as long as it sounds good, it’s music. I incorporate whatever appeals to me and my fans love. I’m not like other artists who like to stick to one sound their entire career, because if you stick to one sound, you’ll not have the ability to enter another sound. It’s like saying I’m a rapper and I’m going to rap my entire life’; you’re not doing yourself or your talent justice, so I don’t want to restrict myself, he stated.
A peek into Olofin Sniper’s discography clearly shows he is a multi-faced and multi-dimensional artist with the gift to deliver in any terrain he found himself.
His first single released in 2015 titled “New Dawn” was laced with Afro Rap sound. The sophomore single “Look Into My Eyes” was delivered with trappings of Afro pop flavour, and so was “Adama” also in 2016, it was Afro pop sound as well.
Describing himself as a classic artist is exactly true to type in his third single titled “Cool Temper” released in 2017 which was purely Rhythm and Blues although with a touch of Africanism in it. And his last single dropped in 2018 was Afro-fusion.
He dropped a Reggae Dancehall “Move it” in 2019 and followed up in the same energetic version to crown 2020 with “Obo Erofo” featuring Fela 2, another Dancehall effort. His last single “Agabado (2021) is an Afro Highlife.
