Obi Original

Obiora Obikwelu, otherwise known as Obi Original, is a Nigerian producer & artist. Being surrounded by music all his life, he finds inspiration from all genres, yet fiercely believes that Africa is the home of music, causing him to form Ozone Creations. The thought of creating a home for Afro-Fusion within the United States has been a dream for him and he is ecstatic to show the world what he and others are capable of creating.
