The 18-year-old MC continues to redefine drill with his latest release.
Following the phenomenal success of 'Naruto Drillings' and its remix with KSI, Offica returns with his latest multi-lingual single, 'SkiddiBop'. Switching between Yoruba and Irish slang, the track sees the drill artist breaking down the steps to his trademark 'SkidiiBop' dance trend.
The dance was first unleashed on the world in Offica's video for 'Naruto Drillings' released back in May – which has since clocked up almost 1.5 million views. The song, which reached the Top 10 of Spotify's UK Viral 50 chart back in July, takes inspiration from the Naruto anime, with explosive lyrics that reference both the series and his own Nigerian heritage:“They call me Jinchuriki because I got a Yoruba demon in me”. Following a successful remix of the track, featuring YouTuber KSI, 'Naruto Drillings' is on a combined 7 million streams and rising.
Offica is joined on 'SkiddiBop' by hotly tipped 18-year-old artist Fizzler, from South London. Fizzler has had a remarkable run
in late 2019, dropping back to back freestyles for Mixtape Madness (Next Up), Link Up TV (Behind Bars) and Who Got
Bars. Responding gleefully to SkiddiBop’s horn-driven beat, Fizzler’s intricate wordplay, rich with references to other artists, from icons such as 2Pac and Biggie to viral Instagram stars Abigail & Vanessa, signals a serious new talent.
