His vocal capabilities freshly thrust him into performance early in this journey, first with LA crew ILLEGAL CIVILIZATION, then soon after supporting international acts ABRA and TOKIMONSTA. Gifted with a voice that has been compared to Stevie Wonder; Ojikae showcased to audiences that, phonically, he was just as powerful live as recorded.
Since his first demo, Ojikae’s vision has undertaken a deep maturity, as Cicero himself has evolved. His final teen years were spent studying towards a Law degree, which conserved him as a part time musician. His potential was ever-present during this period, building to the inevitable moment he switched all his focus to music. As the project then accelerated, he began working with artists like Maribelle, LUCIANBLOMKAMP, Hopium, Benji Miller (Rejjie Snow), Cosmo’s Midnight and Xavier Dunn.
Ojikae proclaims his future is to “Tell stories of love, lust and for the soul - As I grow and experience life, I want to document all I can” as life outside music is no longer an option to him.
