G’aza Teams Up With Zilla Oaks On A New Release “Hold Up”

Nigerian emerging artist, G’aza releases his 3rd single since 2022.  “HOLD UP” which features Nigerian talented artist, Zilla Oaks, is a 2 minute, 41 seconds track that highlights the dark times Nigerians faced the END SARS protest and ultimately the Lekki Massacre on October 20th, 2020. This record took conscious efforts before its release as it reflects his (G’aza’s) contribution to the movement irrespective of his physical distance and Zilla Oaks featuring on this track as his allegiance to the movement that sought to limit Nigeria’s freedom of speech.

As an independent artist but under the management of Mo Management, G’aza prides “AFROFUTURISM” as his genre of music and in being “a shapeshifter” He says,

“Real-life stories are the best in my experience. As long as it’s spontaneous, fluid, and organic, I can be inspired by anything. Lyrically, the aim is to tell a story; sonically, it’s to create an experience.

Artistically, he draws inspiration from 2face Idibia, Vector, Jesse Jagz, Wizkid, Mi abaga, Asa, Sasha P, 50 cent, Lil Wayne, Nelly etc.

Furthermore, G’aza has other projects lined up for the year and promises a summer banger.


G’aza born Abdulkabir Mohammed is a young Nigerian multi disciplinary artist originally from Surulere, Lagos State born to a Hausa father and a Yoruba mum. He immersed himself with music through dance. As a kid, he familiarized himself with rhythms and flows on the dance floor and would win dance competitions at parties.
