I am inspired by people who changed the world like Martin Luther King Jr Mahatma Gandhi and Mother Teresa #musicmoney chats to talented Nigerian artist @thejasonokan

Nigerian-born singer/songwriter Jason Okan has a sound that is all his own. Spending his formative years between the shores of Nigeria and the United States of America, he was introduced to a plethora of music genres that heavily influenced his musicality. One can only describe his unique sound as western with African undertones.

Where are you from?
I am from Lagos, Nigeria.

Tell us about your new project?
The song was inspired by the racial division that came up during the 2016 presidential election in America. The world is more divided than it's ever been. The only way to be truly successful as a nation is to come together. Black or white, rich or poor; unity is all we need.

"Te amo (spanish) and nakupenda (swahili)
You're my sister, you're my brother
Je t'aime beaucoup (French). It means I love ya
Let's unify, come take my hand.

Ich liebe dich (German), though you're a stranger
Mo nife e (Yoruba), love one another
Wo ai ni (Mandarin), you're like no other
Let's unify, come take my hand."

Who inspires you?
I am inspired by people who changed the world like Martin Luther King Jr, Mahatma Gandhi, and Mother Teresa. They are people who preached love, unity and acceptance and their message resonated with everyone regardless of background.

Where do you see your career in 5 years?
I see my music career at the pinnacle of success, with a lot of positive impact in the lives of people and lives being changed by the things I have to say.

Where can we check out your sounds:

You can find me on all the major streaming platforms such as Spotify, Tidal, and Apple Music.

Tell the people something they need to know:
I am the third child of four children, with two older brothers and one younger sister. I am also a lawyer and a writer. I live in Lagos, Nigeria currently.
