Quotes
"a vibrant, likeable performer who refreshingly encapsulates a young, urban spirit", Chortle
"an infectiously playful spirit", Chortle
"the highlight of the evening was support act Ola... his act was thoughtful and reflective and honest. Without proselytizing or falling back on lazy rhetoric, he explored what its like to be a Christian black man in the UK today, while being disarmingly frank about his unease at being defined by either his race or religion... his quiet observations will rattle round my head for days to come", David Vass, Blog
"the sort of enthusiastic, charismatic act likely to be plucked from the circuit by TV producers seeking a presenter to appeal to a youthful demographic", Chortle
