Spotlight on CRANIUM Festival: Apollo Rae (Day 2 – Nov. 16)
Apollo Rae is a Nigerian-born, Ottawa-based recording artist who grew up in Oman, Saudi and moved to Canada when he was 11; around the same time he started writing his own music.
Releasing remixes for almost a decade, he branded himself as Apollo Rae mid-2018 and has been building at a steady pace ever since. While finishing his degree at University in Ottawa, Rae has opened for artists like DEV, Wifisfuneral, Dizzy Wright, Madchild, and Lil Mosey.
Apollo Rae is currently promoting the new Bryan Ghee-assisted “Eyes on Me” remix which was released on Oct. 22 via UNVS Music. You can check that out below but it’s also available for streaming on Apple Music, Spotify, and various other digital outlets.
He’s also released two EPs this year. In January, he came with the 5-track Killing the Python (which featured Nick Khronic and Scimmy), and in July he released The Golden Gate (which featured Preston TO).
Catch Apollo Rae at CRANIUM Festival on Friday, Nov. 15 inside Queen St. Fare on the Capital Rap Battles Stage.
