Ogranya Jable Osai in Port-Harcout Nigeria where he also grew up, Ogranya holds a Bachelors degree in Architecture at Ghana’s Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
Born to a musician, Ogranya will go on to follow his father’s footsteps by venturing into the music industry. Influenced by Frank Sinatra, John Mayer, Ne-Yo and Kanye West, Ogranya’s debut EP ‘Imperfect’ released in 2020 is a rich fusion of classic R&B melodies and passionate lyricism.
He made history through his ‘Project 52’ initiative which saw him become the first artist to put out music every week for a year.
His latest EP, ‘Festival of the Sun’ released in August 2022 through RedClaye Entertainment and available to stream on Apple Music, is a riveting and emotive six-track exploration of Afrobeats, R&B, soul and jazz melodies, rooted in the lush, romantic ballad.
As the newest Up Next act to be spotlighted in Nigeria, Ogranya will be featured across Apple Music’s Nigeria’s Up Next playlist. The curated Up Next playlist features a dynamic class of new and emerging artists, thoughtfully hand-picked by Apple Music editors from around the world.
