A Nigerian, Kelvin Olusola, won a Grammy this year


 26 year old Kelvin Olusola is a singer, producer, cellist, beatboxer, saxophonist and songwriter  born to Nigerian American Oluwole Olusola, who is a psychiatrist and  his mum Curline Paul a nurse.

He won a Grammy with his group "Pentatonix". Pentatonix is an Capella group and they won in the "Arrangement, Instrumental or A Capella category" for their remake of Daft Funk's hit single "Get lucky" featuring Pharell Williams.

The musician was chosen by influential American  music producer, Quincy Jones to represent him in concert at the 2012 Montreux Jazz Festival.

Kelvin is not all about the music though, he is also book smart. He got offered admission into Ivy league universities Princeton University, Yale University, University of Pennsylvania, Brown University and Stanford University. He opted for Yale where he bagged a degree in East Asian studies.

East Asian Studies wasn't his first course of study at Yale though as he initially wanted to study medicine and even finished all his pre-med requirements but changed his mind after he was introduced to China through a 10-day Chinese government sponsored trip for 100 Yalies.

In school, Olusola was the Director of Communications for a Rhodes Scholar-led non-profit called College Outreach and also worked as a book monitor in the Yale Law School library.

Dang!! Talk about brains, talent and he is all so good looking. *winks*.
I have to head to work guys. Catch you later in the day. *kisses*
