” Nah Back door we use Entah// Still dey carry rhyme from time I dey for Placenta//….Moreover, whether april May or decembah!!//I dey quick to grab de Mic like , Kanye , SWIFTLY!!!” – Omodada
Omodada aka Aro was born in Ibadan , Nigeria where he spent his early formative years in Badagry , Nigeria , before he moved, and resided all over Africa with his parents and 4 siblings. He has lived in Ethiopia, Kenya, Namibia, South Africa and currently is based (for the time being) in the United States. Although he has always moved around, one thing has remained a constant in his life, a thirst for creativity and self-expression.

He linked up with Akili Blaq in Mafikeng,South Africa while completing his law degree at the University of North West. The two formed a long lasting understanding and shared a desire to be creative through Hip-hop and self expression. As part of the Lefoko team, they were able to bring these dreams into fruition.
Omodada’s style is a hybrid of personalities and persona’s formed and informed by the many countries, he has lived in and has been influenced by. Omodada attempts social commentary not only on his personal environment and experiences, but on Africa, and the world at large. He does this using humor, rhyme and rythym.
His next project is Music for Border Hoppers,which is to be produced by Akili Blaq and feature various artists including Bra Muki. The concept is music for persons who find themselves constantly moving, or who’ve had to learn to call a foreign country home or who interact with foreigners in their country or who just like good music!
