Your Own is about love and appreciating the beauty of a woman
Born Oscar Azims Valentine, Mestar Oscar is fast establishing himself as one of the most enigmatic acts on the come up on the Ghanaian music scene. Recognizing dance as a language without words that transcends culture, the dancer cum recording artiste cleverly calibrates his sound which is a unique blend of afrobeats and dance music, purposefully for the dancefloor.
Produced by DJ Segs and Babwyd, mixed by Fortune Dane, and mastered by Denis Emery; “Your Own” is no exception to the rule. Speaking on the inspiration behind the release, Mestar Oscar said:
“During the time of recording, I was listening to a lot of electronic music. A lot of Cashmere Cat, Major Lazer, and Sia. The whole idea was to create an afrobeat song fused with electronic music with a touch of Ghanaian lyrical style.”

A follow-up to “XXX” which dropped sometime in February, “Your Own” remains consistent with the risqué theme of the afore-released single.
“Also, this is funny but with writing the song I was thinking… if I were to make a song for a beautiful girl who was a mermaid what was I going to say? The whole point of the song is to make people bust their raunchiest dance moves!”, Mestar Oscar added.
