KCEE’s ‘Ojapiano (Remix)’ featuring One Republic hits the airwaves

KCEE has set the music scene on fire with the release of the remix of his hit single “Ojapiano,” featuring the globally celebrated band OneRepublic. The collaboration, according to a statement, not only marks a milestone in the career of the renowned Nigerian artiste born Kingsley Chinweike Okonkwo but also signifies a powerful fusion of cultures and musical styles.

The original “Ojapiano,” produced by Jaysynths, garnered immense praise for its blend of traditional Nigerian elements and contemporary music production. The track’s infectious rhythm and KCEE’s captivating vocals resonated deeply with audiences, establishing him as a cultural icon in the music industry.

The decision to collaborate with OneRepublic reflects KCEE’s vision of expanding the reach of African music on the global stage. The teaser of the remix has already generated significant buzz on social media, generating anticipation among fans worldwide.

OneRepublic’s lead vocalist Ryan Tedder expressed his excitement about the collaboration, highlighting his eagerness to work with African artists and embrace diverse musical influences. The remix promises to elevate “Ojapiano” to new heights, blending the band’s international flair with the rich cultural heritage of Nigeria.


KCEE shared his enthusiasm for the collaboration, emphasising how the Oja sound—a traditional flute used in the song—is gaining global recognition and fostering connections across continents. The remix not only represents artistic innovation but also stands as a symbol of unity and collaboration in the music industry.

As music enthusiasts eagerly await the full release of the remix, it’s clear that “Ojapiano” is not just a song but a testament to the power of music in bridging cultures and celebrating diversity.

The Nativemag says of the song: “For too long the southeast has been excluded from discussions in mainstream media. Lauded for business and economy, and less for its culture and philosophy. As someone who cracked the scope many years ago, it’s fitting that KCEE is again at the forefront of this conversation.”

For music lovers ready to experience this transcendent fusion, the remix is now available for streaming here.
