This is the official video to Samarhymes’ wave making song and second single ‘Loke Loke‘. Shot in locations in Ikeja, Lagos, the video was directed by Jassy and produced by AKP Banger Visuals. Samarhymes has been dubbed as next rated and an artist to watch out for by most industry heads and OAPs in Nigeria.
The afro-hip hop artiste whose real name is Farinde Olusola Olufemi is from Osun state. The development of his unique style is the result of a lifetime of musical influence. Growing up in a talented musical family meant that Samarhymes was always surrounded by different forms of music. He is keen to point out that everything he listens to directs his musical development in some way. However, he would certainly include junior and pretty, Eedris Abdulkareem and 2face Idibia as amongst his biggest early influences.
His first foray into music came while he was an undergraduate at the University of Lagos where he studied Chemistry and Applied Science.
Samarhyme’s musical journey did not begin in Osun state, however. Born in Lagos, it was here that he developed his musical tastes and interests, and it wasn’t long after he began writing his own lyrics in 1999 and it took him four years to determine the direction for his music journey before he eventually decided to do his first recording in 2003.
After realizing that making music was his main goal, he began to showcase his talent in various venues across Lagos, Accra, Amsterdam US and South Africa, playing at numerous gigs and making sure that his name and music were being heard by as many people as possible
