“Full of laughs, heart-warming, hilarious …A brilliant, truly enjoyable show ★★★★★”, Three Weeks – Aug-2014

“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 it’s 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
“Standing out, a strong favourite for a through line of continuity who the viewers will grow to love and quote, is the Lord Snooty like character Dr Leon Askwith who breaks down issues intermittently throughout the show.”, Jasmine Dotiwala, Huff Post – review of one of Ola’s characters in Sniggers With Attitude on London Live

  1. Hi Ola,

    I saw your performance yesterday at the corporate event. I went rather reluctantly expecting a dull evening. But not so, thanks to your brilliant performance. Thanks!

  2. Saw Ola’s Sunday Service show last night and the intelligence, perceptive depth of the night didn’t stop me laughing out loud. Brilliant

  3. Hey, I just wanted to say you were absolutely brilliant tonight on The Now Show, just blistering, so good and so powerful. Keep it up, amigo!

  4. Hi Ola! Saw you tonight supporting Daliso Chaponda in St Albans – thought you were brilliant! Have enjoyed your radio 4 work too – was an unexpected treat to get to see you tonight!

  5. Know your wonderful Ola. Keep on keeping on. Enjoy the journey. Lots of love light and much much laughter.
