Ola – Solo Soul Jazz Singer

Solo Soul Jazz Singer in London

Ola is a solo Soul Jazz singer whose purpose is to serve people into a greater experience of what he calls the abundant life through Joy. Blending principles from his Psychology degree with experience as a lead singer in gospel and afrobeat circles, Ola draws from music as far as Ella Fitzgerald and Elvis to Bon Jovi and The Temptations to create unforgettable experiences.

He also has a penchant for honest conversations that seem to be ludicriously funny (at his expense) even though he claims it was never on purpose. He is an apt communicator and his music has often been described as ‘refreshing’, ‘exotic’ and ‘different’ from what you would usually hear on the radio.
