Recording Academy® voting member, Tito Da.Fire releases his third definitive studio album, OSG (ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS) – out September 23, 2022 via Grindiin Records/Next Music SA. The 12-track album spotlights his socio-cultural and political consciousness after One Kiss album and features a compelling global collaboration with Grammy Award Winners Wouter Kellerman, Mixing and Mastering legend Bill Hare, Spoken Word Poet Bunmi Africa, Selma, and Ryan E. Peters an eight year-old lyricist.
OSG (ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS) tells Tito Da.Fire’s compelling story of NIGHALI (Nigeria, Ghana and Liberia). Tito Da.Fire coined that name as a metaphor for non-violent Pan-African liberation through Music, Cultural and Economic Empowerment. It is themed around the historical concept of rising “On the Shoulders Of Giants”, which tells his personal story of rising through uprisings in Liberia, to Nigeria (his father’s birth Country), to become a consistent Voice out of Nigeria. Importantly, the album reminds the culture that, “while we all call out oppression, we have to come with clean hands”.
The Album boasts of Afro-fusion, Afrobeats, World Music, Reggae-fusion, Afro-pop, and R&B influences, with lead single, One Day released on July 29, 2022, while “Abibeji” (February 2022) and “Kokoro” (August 2021). Production and recording took place across five countries, namely Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana, Germany and the United States, between 2021 and 2022, in several recording studios. The album features Production by Sharnor, Aizbag and Tito Da.Fire.
