 On this week’s throwback Thursday, we have revisited the Nigerian gospel music archive to present Olori Oko by Infinity.   

The song that dominated the industry many years ago remains evergreen and meaningful. The inspiration and wordings of this great song are melodious, mesmerising and soothing ever since. 

 

This Song makes a befitting throwback as the song itself reminds that “Jesus” (Olori Oko) is still coming.

ABOUT INFINITY

Within the four walls of their school, they met, drawn to each other by their passion for music. They spent most of their spare time together working on melodies and rhymes not knowing they were being steered by the wheels of destiny. They started as a five-man team but after their debut release, two of the founding members went on pursue solo careers.

Today, (over fourteen years later) they have evolved into one of the most prominent groups on the continent of Africa; they are called INFINITY. Three young men; Nnogo Samson, Sunny Steven and Joseph Robert Okougbo

Infinity is focused on bridging the extremity between art and Spirit by producing music with high standards, merging the peak of art with an in-depth spiritual influence. Infinity’s style of music cannot be boxed into a particular genre since they write songs as inspired, ranging from R&B, Soul, Rock, Fuji, Afro-Beat, Traditional folk, etc so at best their style of music can be branded as “ECLECTIC”.

They have performed before the President(s) of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and at other notable events such as the BIG BROTHER NIGERIA EVICTION PARTY, SWEET SENSATION’S 10th year anniversary, THE ANNUAL DANCE MEETS DANCE FESTIVAL, RHYTHM UNPLUGGED, MUSIC AFRICA ANNUAL CONCERT, corporate events for MTN, FCMB, NIGERIAN BREWRIES, NLNG and others.
