DJ - GreenEyedLion (a.k.a Osman Okey)

>> STYLE - Afrobeat, Afrohouse, Tribal house, DnB Ragga Jungle

>> SOUNDCLOUD MIX

>> BIO -

Born into a family of artists, orators and musicians. Consequently has been cultivating beats from early childhood. GreenEyedLion a.k.a Osman Okey brings
elements of all his travels around the world (Nigeria, Turkey, U.K., New Zealand, Brazil and Canada) to his music and mixes. This includes percussion.
His Safari Nites events also promote these genre (Afrobeat, Afrohouse, Tribal house, DnB Ragga Jungle)
of music.

Originally from Nigeria. Studied and lived in Turkey where he commuted to and from the U.K. on school holidays visiting the SOHO and East London clubs.
These commutes led to his immersion in the punk rock and DnB culture.

He moved to New Zealand after obtaining a BSc in Computer Engineering. In 2003, while in New New Zealand, he saw an opportunity based on the lack of African or World music in the downtown clubs and created the SAHARA NIGHTS series at a Cuban club called Descarga Cubana on busy K-arangahape Road, Auckland. He began his stint on controllers here spinning in collaboration with drummers.

He then emigrated to Canada in 2006 where he focused on elevating West African percussion at first, in order to align with the birth of his newest offspring - SAFARI NITES - series which began on May 23 2019. This included AFRO-CENTRIC art (Masks and other artifacts) and music to match the mood.

You can expect to dance your feet off as the GreenEyedLion takes you on a mesmerizing journey through Africa, the middle east, Europe and beyond with a sprinkle of HOUSE MUSIC here and there!!
