Naika Oko

I See Only You

An emotive, soulful- and R&B-influenced singer/songwriter, Naika Oko initially attracted fans online before releasing her first independent single in 2011 Pianoman By Naika Oko. Buoyed by the single ‘Rock it off’ (2012), Naika’s next follow-up, 2017’s Tug of War, fared even better, with the music video landing at number 5 on the AT&T U-verse Channel PopFuzion Tv. Since then, she has further embraced her creativity and life situations that have influenced her new releases. After posting covers and being on the top 10 most-watched in Canada on Youtube, just under Justin Bieber, she started writing and working on her original songs. Naika proved her singing capabilities when she sang on the Billboard-charting, Grammy-nominated, Treat You Better record by Rufus du Sol, which featured on their album, ‘Solace’, in 2019.

Naika didn’t stop only at music. It has opened the door for modeling and acting opportunities. She was featured on the cover of Kabari Indonesia and has walked the Finale for Actor and Fashion designer Ivan Gunawan for his Jajaka collection. She has acted in the post-production movie ‘The Spare Room’, Netflix film ‘Game Over Man!’ (2018) and was featured as a cameo in many music videos such as ‘Dis Generation’ by A Tribe Called Quest ft. Busta Rhymes, ‘Blessings’ by Ty Dolla Sign and Lecrae, and ‘N.W.A’ by Phyno and Wale.
