In a Instagram post, Oskido announced his co-leadership of an exciting new project focused on the AfroDiaspora, alongside the renowned American producer and engineer, Gordon “Commissioner Gordon” Williams. Known for his Grammy-winning work and contributions to numerous Gold and Platinum albums, Commissioner Gordon‘s illustrious career has seen collaborations with iconic artists such as Lauryn Hill, Stephen and Damian Marley, Amy Winehouse, and KRS-One, the legendary figure who bestowed upon him the nickname “Commissioner.”

The post captures a moment in a studio in Salvador, Brazil, where Oskido and Commissioner Gordon discuss their partnership. Oskido, brimming with enthusiasm, introduces Gordon to his audience, prompting a conversation about his storied career. Gordon reflects on his most recognized works, including his role in producing Lauryn Hill‘s seminal album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.”

Gordon expresses his excitement about the AfroDiaspora project and shares his admiration for Oskido’s approach to music and social media. He recounts how his time in Brazil and his collaboration with Oskido have been immensely educational and inspiring. This mutual admiration and the exchange of knowledge are beautifully encapsulated in the Zulu saying “izandla ziyagezana” meaning “hands that wash each other,” and the proverb shared by Stephen Marley, “iron sharpens iron.”

The video ends with a display of camaraderie and respect between the two artists, highlighting the collaborative spirit that drives their project. The AfroDiaspora initiative promises to be a testament to their shared vision and the rich cultural exchange they are fostering.

Stay tuned as Oskido and Commissioner Gordon continue to blend their unique talents and cultural insights, creating music that celebrates the diverse and vibrant tapestry of the AfroDiaspora.
