Oko began to write and produce his own music with his Church Choir when he was only 14. As a true artist who knows a good sounds when he hears it, Oko has been molding and perfecting his sound to make his mark on today’s music Industry. He aims to not only create great music, but also to impact the world with his talents and gifts.
Oko is majoring in communication at University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He is working with a music company called Hitkey Entertainment. Hitkey stands behind their belief that “humility is the key” to success. Oko’s main motivation is his love for his craft. In a capitalistic society, it is hard to do anything for a purpose other than money. It is programmed in the human brain to work for profit and to work smart not hard. But creativity embraces the opposite concept. To work hard to create, and recreate, until a piece is molded to perfection.
Oko embraces that philosophy. He understands the word “artist” encompasses. Every day, he shapes himself into a cutting edge music creator.
