Økuntakinte’s musical and artistic influences come from historical figures such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Billy Holiday, Fela Kuti, Nat King-Cole and Amy Winehouse. Økuntakinte as a brand shows a strong commitment to minimalism as a way of life and is becoming a part of the minimalist fashion movement with a dedication to clean aesthetics and timeless pieces entwined with Afrocentric trinkets, such as his “Vlisco Angelina fabric” bandanna.

Økuntakinte released the video for his debut Afro-EDM record “Summer Of X” on YouTube. This was an unconventional yet new-expressionistic piece with breathtaking visuals which invited viewers into the mind of Økuntakinte who seems to be organically growing a following on social media. The future is looking bright for this rising son of Africa who looks to break through onto the global music scene.
