We’re excited to announce the start of a new series called New Spins, which we plan on posting at the beginning of each month. The post will include last month’s featured local releases on our Ottawa Spins Spotify playlist, as well as a Track of the Month.
Support Ottawa artists by following their profiles on Spotify and boosting their stream numbers, as well as going to their upcoming shows and buying their music in digital/physical formats.

June’s Track of the Month is by Asuquomo (FKA Morris Ogbowu), a prolific Nigerian-born musician that brings his pan-African story to Canada’s capital. “Wide Awake is an irresistibly catchy and popping song that brilliantly walks the line between sharp lyricism and technique and dance-inducing rhythms. The music video was shot in Asuquomo’s home country of Nigeria, so be sure to watch it below.
Asuquomo will be playing live at Queen Street Fare on July 26th in support of Tuareg songwriter and musician Mdou Moctar. A show not to be missed!
