Oshri Talks His Big Break, Getting Mentored By Wyclef Jean, Making ‘Crazy But Free,’ And More

International artist Oshri made waves after wining the first ever TRACE Music Stars competition. The South African native, now New York City transplant, stopped by PRO MOTION to reflect on his current success and what’s next to come in his music career.

After being mentored by 3x Grammy Award winning artist Wyclef Jean, Oshri was approached by Akon to join his label KonLive Distribution in 2015 and the Yemeni/French singer hasn’t looked back. 

During our exclusive conversation Oshri shared stories of his humble ‘farm’ beginnings, the concept behind getting naked in his music video, and his mission to make people dance. Watch below.

Oshri is currently promoting his infectious single ‘Crazy But Free,’ which scored the Hot Shot Debut (No. 48) on Billboard‘s Dance Club Songs chart, dated August 7th, 2017. Hear Cristian Poow’s remix below and grab it on Apple Music here.
