From starting his career in 2019, Offica has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the top, from his iconic breakthrough tune Naruto Drillings, to collaborating with the likes of KSI, Fizzler, Blanco and Skengdo x AM, to breaking into the charts globally with his A92 crew cut Plugged In.
Offica is from Drogheda, an industrial and port town in County Louth on the east coast of Ireland. Having amassed close to 100m streams across platforms, he has led the way for the new generation of Irish / Nigerian artists emerging from the migration of West Africans to the country.
Now tipped as One to Watch in 2021 by both the mainstream and the underground, by as disparate a set of sources as The Guardian, The Irish Times, Complex, Mixtape Madness and more, he is poised to take his hybrid party sound global.
