Early life

Osho was brought up in South London by his parents Nigerian born father and Irish Nigerian mother. He attended Graveney School in Tooting, South London where he found himself good at English as well as being a keen footballer. He began writing songs from an early age, when one of his mother's friends threw out a guitar, which he then started to learn. Osho was brought up religiously, accompanying his mother to church twice a week.

In May 2012, after performing "Redemption Days" on Later... with Jools Holland, Osho's music started to become noticed by mainstream media.
