BIO: Oritse Femi
OritseFemi of the MSN music Gang is a top Nigerian afrobeats singer.
He was born and groomed in Ajegunle,Lagos State,Nigeria . He delved into music soon enough at a tender age when he was still in secondary school. He dropped out of Delta State University (Delsu) due to financial constraint. He briefly attended Mayday Secondary School in Ikoyi, switched to Tolu Primary School and finally completed his elementary education at Army Children School. He attained his secondary school certificate from Randle Secondary School.
Oritsefemi started off professionally as lead vocalist of the Cherubim and Seraphim Church in Ajegunle, Lagos where he also played bass guitar. He revealed his greatest opportunity musically was when Shaba Ranks, Keppy Ton and others came to establish a Ragga Dub School in Ajegunle. They were brought there by the late Johnny Nap.
He released two albums with his group-mate, Chibudo of the junglist group. The title of the first album was also a hit track in the compilation titled Boys Dey Binu. The second album was titled Money Na Time and they both had 8 tracks.
In 2006, The Junglist Boys broke up following an obscure disagreement between the two artists making up the group. Both artists Oritse Femi and Chi-Junglist tried to launch their individual solo careers. But only Oritse Femi hit the ground running following the release of “Elewon” and “Flog Politician” which quickly warmed him into the hearts of Ajegunle youths and music audience and later the very classic “Flog Politician” album.
