OVEOUS embodies brilliant lyricism with a powerful performance. Perhaps his greatest strength is that he was able to turn his brother’s suicide into a global mission for mental healing and the positive uplifting of all people he comes across with thru his music and words. He’s earned standing ovations on HBO Def Jam, The Arsenio Hall Show, and has been a winner multiple times on “Showtime at the Apollo”. His now classic hit song “Mirror Dance” with Osunlade still rocks the core of your soul on the dance floor. As a poet he’s earned countless national titles and is one of few artists to be chosen by the US State Dept of Music to represent America this year on a world tour.  

 Think #Edutainment. OVEOUS’ KeyNote presentation combines storytelling, music, history on poetry bringing the whole community together.
