Fuse ODG has come as a great surprise and wonderful news when the Sandstorm organizers announced that he will be performing at the Sandstorm Beach Party on the 20th of July, just 5 days from now. The swift decision to contract the artist for a performance on the 20th was sparked by a cancellation in their original plan to feature J Hus, given the sad announcement from J Hus not being able to perform for personal reasons, the Sandstorm organizers had to come up with something powerful to keep the ticket holders more than happy and what better way than to bring FUSE ODG to light up the stage.
Fuse ODG is a talented producer and rapper and has been an active influence in helping young people in his local communities realize their musical aspirations through a mobile studio. He is the founder of TINA (This Is New Africa) movement that set out to encourage Africans to use their skills in rebuilding their communities and take pride in their cultural heritage.
In 2011, he traveled to Ghana and met with African producer Killbeatz and rapper Tiffany; they collaborated on viral dance track "Azonto," which had millions imitating his moves worldwide. His distinct combination of Afro-beats, hip-hop, and rap led to favorable comparisons with Akon and K'naan, and he won the Urban Music Award for Best Afro-Beats Artist in 2012, as well as a nomination for a Ghana Music Award -- the first U.K.-based artist to be considered.
His success was hard to deny with over a million views on his YouTube channel and the triumphant release of his 2012 EP The Buzz. The following year, Fuse sparked another dance craze with his single "Antenna," which featured American rapper Wyclef Jean and rose to the Top Ten of the U.K. Singles Chart. He scored three more hits, which were later included on his debut album, T.I.N.A. (named after his empowerment movement), released in late 2014. In 2015, Fuse released the single "Top of My Charts." More singles followed, including 2016's "BomBae" featuring Zack Knight and Badshah, and 2017's "Window Seat" and "Sunrise," with Jillionaire and Fatman Scoop.
