Fresh from his 19th May, 2023, debut release alongside iconic YouTuber Mista Dayvis on “Pum Pum,” fast-rising star Sir Abel has kicked off the new year in spectacular fashion with the release of an impressive single, ‘Oh Girl’. This Afro-pop/Afro-R&B tune is incredibly infectious from the very start.
With a seamless fusion of indigenous and contemporary sounds, Sir Abel, whose talents encompass singing and songwriting, demonstrates his prowess throughout the entire track. He perfectly assumes the role of a lover boy, expressing poetic lyrics and adoration for a love interest, highlighting how much one could get possessed when in love and the way it diverts their actions to doing things that please that special someone.
One could argue that there’s so many love songs out there, not another one; however, I like us to appreciate but the subject of love remains a core topic for many burgeoning musicians, more so as their first songs. From Justin Bieber’s “Baby”, to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe”.
Being an 18-year-old, ‘Oh Girl’ is heavily inspired by Sir Abel’s previous encounters as he wrote it himself, as assisted by Akampurira Benjamin. The record was recorded at Dustville Records, produced by Isaac Kalema, and in the mixing and mastering role was the undeniably talented Abaasa Rwemereza.
Its artwork is of a half face and half rose with a golden print, as designed by Tarrific.

About Sir Abel:
Born Able Musasizi Baruch in January 2005, Sir Abel picked up passion for writing and singing songs at the tender age of 10. When it comes to musical instruments, the violin and keyboard/piano have his heart.
P-Square, UB40, Celine Dion, Lillian Mbabazi, Fireboy DML, Lauv, Christopher Martins, Radio and Weasel, and Blu*3 are some names Sir Abel says are his inspirations, as he grew up watching them.
In his music, Sir Abel explores a variety of genres, from reggae dancehall to afrobeats, pop, and urban RnB.
“The Next Big Thing” as Sir Abel likes to refer to himself, is highly passionate, and while in conversation, he revealed to me that by the age of 17, he had written over 35 songs.
With the folks in his circle, the individuals he is working with, his musical knowledge, and his gift of having a unique voice, Sir Abel is poised for a bright future musically. Not forgetting his compelling consistency at delivering new music, right from the time he started last year, reinforcing the notion that he is here to stay, and for a very long time.
