After a long break from releasing music, TiTi Owusu comes through with “Odo Ntia,” an Afro house track with elements of Amapiano. The song title in her native Twi stands for “because of love.” Released on February 1, 2023, “Odo Ntia,” is TiTi Owusu’s first single nearly three years after the release of “Pray For Me,” featuring Nigerian UK-based artist Moelogo. Between the release of her last single, TiTi had lent her voice to numerous projects such as BRYAN THE MENSAH’s “Until I See You” and Mr. Drew’s chart-topping “Better.”
“Odo Ntia,” co-written by TiTi Owusu is an assurance of love from the soulful vocalist to her love interest. On the Jayso and MikeMillzOnEm-produced track, the Ghanaian genre-bending artist shows appreciation for her lover and promises to care for him. The mid-tempo song also sees TiTi Owusu assure her lover of a together forever. It is a follow-up to her previous single, “Pray For Me, which sees her asking her significant other for assurance of his love.
In addition to being a love anthem, “Odo Ntia” is a showcase of TiTi Owusu’s growth as a songwriter and vocalist. The 26-year-old singer recalls immediately penning down the lyrics after hearing and loving the instrumental, during a session with Jayso, her mentor and CEO of Skillions Global, the independent record label she is signed to.
