The 22 year old multi-hyphenate, artist, actor, model and choreographer has danced alongside some of this generation’s most notable R&B and Afrobeats artists, including Rihanna, Janet Jackson, Teyana Taylor, Wizkid, Davido and more! Papi has also appeared in campaigns with Nike and Adidas, and as an extra on Ava DuVernay’s award-winning series When They See Us.

Papi Ojo’s choreographic brilliance is spotlighted in music videos for Beyonce’s Spirit and Already. Since the premiere of Black Is King, Papi has earned global recognition and a profile in TIME magazine. Inspired by his West-African roots, Papi found a calling for music and dance at the age of 13, and went on to publish his debut single Awelewa in February 2019, followed by Carry Go.
