OKENYO ’10 Feet Tall’ Single Launch

OKENYO emerges from the pack as a uniquely charismatic artist, part of a new generation of powerful women making their mark.

OKENYO announced herself in 2015 with the wry and colourful ‘Just A Story’, turning heads in Australia and internationally. Gaining praise from international media such as Clash, Noisey and Hunger TV describing Okenyo as “Equal parts Frank Ocean, Grace Jones and M.I.A”.

2016 began with a bang, joining label mate Urthboy and the supreme Sampa The Great on the warm and uplifting ‘Second Heartbeat’ as well as joining Urthboy on his ‘Second Heartbeat’ tour stopping in 14 cities and towns including a stack of sold out shows! ’10 Feet Tall’ sees her collaborating with producer Badcop (Tkay Maidza’s ‘Brontosaurus’ and ‘Handle My Ego’).

With a mission statement of igniting strength and spiriti in the women around her, ’10 Feet Tall’ is a manifesto for the future: stand tall and claim your power.

To celebrate the release of ’10 Feet Tall’ OKENYO will be performing a very intimate show at Sydney’s Oxford Circus on Wednesday July 6. Tickets are available through Moshtix.
