At the 2017 Grammy Awards, American a cappella band Pentatonix and Dolly Parton won the Best County duo/group performance for their spin on the classic song 'Jolene'.
What most people might not know is the group has a 28-year-old Nigerian member named Kevin Olusola who is the beatboxer for the group and also a rapper, record producer and singer. Watch their Grammy winning song below:
Kevin's father is Nigerian psychiatrist Oluwole Olusola and his mother is Grenadian-born Curline Paul. He is a master of the cello, saxophone and piano.
He is also a Yale University graduate who is fluent in English, Spanish and Chinese. Watch Kevin kill it on the cello below:
He joined Pentatonix in 2011 and since winning an American show called The Sing Off in 2011, the group has released five albums and have sold over 2 million records.
