Tickets to see Offica at 3Olympia Theatre on October 25th go on sale this Friday at 9am.
Drogheda's own drill prodigy known as Offica has announced a headline show at Dublin's 3Olympia Theatre this autumn, with tickets going on sale this Friday.
2022 has thus far seen the release of 'Sharingan', following 2021's 'Bluebird', 'Obito' and 'Oggy' as well as A92's collective single 'D Town Baby'.
The Irish star began his musical career in early 2018 and has been an inspiration to other drill rappers around the country as a result to his unique style. He consistently makes use of Irish and Yoruba slang within his lyrics to further exhibit his culture and ethnicity. Offica was born in Lagos, but has lived in Drogheda since the age of six - later playing for Drogheda United Under-19s.
Despite steadily clocking up views and streams in their millions over the last two years, the individual members of A92 have largely flown under all the traditional industry radars – with many on these shores unaware that one of the most hotly tipped drill collectives in the world has been emerging under our noses.
Following the release of his first track, ‘No Hook’, in late 2018, Offica garnered viral attention with his breakout single ‘Naruto Drillings’, as well as the subsequent remix featuring popular YouTuber and rapper KSI. Originally hiding his identity behind his trademark Naruto mask, Offica continued to build up his reputation through collaborations with major UK drill artists Skengdo & AM and Harlem Spartans’ Blanco.
His acclaimed solo track ‘Face Reveal’ premiered on hotpress.com back in May 2020, and was soon followed by a music video that saw the rapepr removing his iconic mask for the first time – sparking a major reaction online.
Tickets for Offica live at 3Olympia Theatre on October 25th go on sale this Friday at 9am, priced from €20.
