Conversations About Her

Trepdee – ORIRE | Music Video


Afolabi Doyinsola Samuel, better known by his stage name, Trepdee, is a Nigerian recording artist, songwriter and performer. He started his musical career at age 13, recording his first official single, featuring Mike Word, of RMG Records, in 2011, titled “I Made It”. After taking some time out to study, Trepdee has returned with his debut single, “ORIRE”.


“ORIRE” is an earnest, searching number. The Nigerian influences are certainly apparent, a lilt and swing to things. The feel is that of a ballad but happiness seems to abound, too. When the rap section crops up, the international audience’s ears prick. The individual elements, indeed, are delicate, dainty and fragile, combining for a somehow prominent sound.


The video takes in barefoot children rolling bicycle tyres and Trepdee lacing his words whilst taking in the surrounds of a rather grand church. Come midway, he is amongst the lads. Brothers in arms. This is followed by a blessing from a robed member of the church. A man now anointed after much striving in his life.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
