I’m The Vehicle To Drive Shaku Shaku To The World- Slimcase.
Oluwafemi Oke-Eko, popularly known as Slimcase has made a name for himself after releasing his hit songs 'Omo Shepeteri' and 'Oshozondi'. For eight years nothing of note was heard of the Ikorodu-born singer, until some seven months ago when the tides turned for him. In the last seven months he is perhaps the most featured singer by other musical acts.
The secret is simple. Slimcase, a.k.a Otunba Lamba resorted to the gritty part of the street where he belongs, weaving its pros and cons, to create a recipe of his own which has stood him out. He might have met bigger boys on the street, doing bigger things on the scene but Slimcase found his place and hoisted a flag that has since been flying with pomp and pride.
Shaku shaku has been around for a while on the streets, but nobody paid attention to it and no one knew how to tap into a sound for the dance until I drop this song titled ‘Oshozondi’, and showed them that they can vibe that dance to this song. It created a standard for them which showed that this sound really goes with the dance. It made me prominent. I didn’t start the dance, my song created a platform for the dance,” he said.
“ Shaku shaku have been for a while but then there was no song to bring it out to mainstream audience. It was my relentless collaborations like Oshozondi and Shepeteri that made people see a platform for the dance. So, I am a vehicle to drive the dance to the world. That’s why my name is tagged on the street song ‘Shakushaku’. Of course my brother, Mr Real dropped his ‘Legbegbe’ song same time as Oshozondi and it all became a hit and we are both tagged with Shaku shaku. But due to my unrelenting features becoming hits back to back, the street now see me as the frontliner,” he declared with some sense of pride.
