So the last time I wrote about Kevin Olusola whom I proclaimed Nigeria’s Future Yo-Yo Ma was in 2009. Then Olusola was a student at Yale University and was just featured on PBS “From the Top” at Carnegie Hall. Kevin is now in Los Angeles and is part of the acapella group that won Season 3 of NBC’s “The Sing Off”, Pentatonix.
Kevin is known for taking classical music and mixing it with hip-hop beats. He tags his music as “Beatbox Cello KO”. Well for those classical music addicts like myself (well those who like it defiled), Olusola is back with a Beatbox Cello (soulful) cover of Rihanna’s Diamonds. Check out Olusola’s Diamonds remix below.
Would love to hear what you think. Send me a tweet @bukkykinoshi
