"I’m A Rider,” by Afro Beat Artist, Omo Pholo!

Omo Phola has come all the way from South Africa to drop the dopest of afro beats! Omo is best known for amazing hits like, Show Me Love, My Zulu Baby, and Mummy I Love You, with his newest perfection, I’m A Rider, as one of the best yet! #music #newmusic #afrobeat

"If you cut my veins, music would come out of them. Music chose me and it gives me so much joy.” ~ Omo Phola

It wasn’t until later in life when Omo realized the special gift that he had, explaining; "I would sing in the car with my friends. One day, my friends asked me why I didn’t take music seriously. They told me that I am talented and need to do something with it [my talent]. So at about 17-18 years old, I went to my first studio session. It came out really nice, and I just kept doing it.”

His journey wasn’t always butterflies and rainbows; Omo hustled on the streets of South Africa to ensure his dream would become his reality. "Nothing comes easy. There were definitely some struggles but my persistence came through. I would sing wherever I could, handing out my music on the streets.” Omo continued; "I had no funds to push my first song, so I really had to hustle to make it happen. I was able to push out more singles and make a name for myself”.

Making a name for himself is just what he did! Omo released hit after hit gaining notoriety by the second. He found himself on televisions and radio stations all over Africa, highlighting his newest single entitled, "African Beauty”! "African Beauty,” placed Omo in the top 20 singers of South Africa!

"African Beauty, celebrates the beauty of a woman. Women are precious jewels and women make everything more beautiful. My next single was called, Show Me Love. Show Me Love, shows others how to show love. Show Me Love, made the top 20 on Chicago radio stations, it was crazy man. All of this has just been so crazy!”

Phola continued to hustle as an independent artist writing all of his songs himself as well as producing his own music videos. He was bound and determined to make his musical dreams a reality, all while staying humbled to his roots. He booked a tour and was ready to begin his lifelong dream until...Covid showed its ugly face. All of his stateside concerts were cancelled yet, Omo kept pushing. He wasn’t about to lay down and give up on his dreams. He pushed through quarantine like a champ and recorded another single entitled, "I’m A Rider”! "I’m a Rider,” is scheduled to drop soon on all digital platforms!
