Transformation from a "PRINCE to KING" THE KING ROKAN STORY....

Rokan Adekola (b. 1967) popularly known as King Rokan is a US-based Nigerian songwriter, recording artiste and performer. His music is a contemporary mix of Afro-juju, Fuji and Gospel Highlife with a soulful touch of traditional Yoruba rhythm. His songs are mostly in his Yoruba mother tongue and inspired by the desire to uplift and promote the rich indigenous culture of Africa.

He has performed at very important events around the world including; the opening ceremony of the 1996 Olympics and black history month. He has entertained three presidents; President Bill Clinton at the White House in 1993 with Bolu and the Roots of African Percussion and two former Nigerian presidents; Gen. Abdusalemi Abubakar in Washington DC and President Olusegun Obasanjo in Ohio. He performed live at the grand opening of Animal Kingdom in Disney world Orlando Florida.

"King Rokan" just recently released his new song titled "ORI" featuring Seinde Jo produced by Nigerian Music Maestro " Puffy Tee" who created Yahoozee-Olu Maintain and Lori Le by Xproject and the video directed by Dj Tee/RMG(Ayo Shonnaiya). This song is the TRUE DEFINITION of traditional sounds fused with a hiphop twist.

“ORI”– is a song about thanking God for everything he has done. It’s a victory song, conveying a message of hope and strength for one to always follow their dreams and pursue their goals.
