They are a team, and they can't all be doing the same thing, and who said he's not shining? He is a Grammy award winner.

Oh i see, seems you are angry with him, let me know when any of your talentless, rubbish- spewing Nigerian Artistes win Grammy award, it's only a Nigerian that will tell you that a Grammy award winner didn't shine

This is great news. I wonder when Nigerians in Nigeria will get the platform to do great things in Nigeria and gain accolades from the world.
Besides, this guy is an American with a Nigerian Name.

If he was in Nigeria, i am sure his talent would have wasted.
If grammy was a Nigerian thing, i am sure he wouldn't be nominated because his father is not tinubu or buhari. Better still, he wouldn't be nominated because he is yoruba or igbo or hausa.
His talent would die along with his soul.


True,if he was living in Nigeria,his Parent wont even think that beatboxing is a talent.

“Medicine was a reliable and safe career, so it was a big leap of faith for me and my parents when I decided to pursue music,” Olusola told the Lexington Herald-Leader. “

There is a 1% that your parent will allow you to choose to pursue music over medicine. This guy is a Nigerian but has an American brain.

Omo odua representing us well all over d world while flateeees are doing d opposite

When you think that he doesn't know the odua language as seen in the languages he can speak tells you either one of two things, 1. he doesnt associate with your so called odua or 2. he is a slave. i leave you to ponder on that before trying to glorify your odua and calling others names
