Pub Crawling
OCTAVIAN'S EMPIRE
8/21/18

 

Acclaimed Southeast London-based singer/songwriter/rapper Octavian (who's been endorsed by the likes of Drake, among others) celebrates inking a worldwide pub deal with Stellar Songs and Sony/ATV by posing for this imperial group shot just by the elevator. "This is only the beginning," proclaimed SATV U.K. MD and President Worldwide Creative Guy Moot. "Thanks to your relationship with us you can be photographed virtually anywhere in this building—in the tea room, the other hallway, the car park... the possibilities are endless." 

Seen thinking some scones and jam would be particularly Stellar are (l-r) manager Cillian Farrell, Moot, SATV U.K. A&R chief David Ventura, Octavian, lawyer Wale Kalejaiye, Stellar Songs co-founder Danny D and manager Greg Burnell. 

We jest, of course, but this 22-year-old (born Oliver Godji) is definitely turning heads with his genre-bending work; Pitchfork proclaimed he was "shaping the sound of rap in 2018." Check out his "Party Here" below.
