The "Source" magazine called her "precocious figure on the spoken word scene," audiences compare her to Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Macy Gray, Duffy, and Lauryn Hill.
This AfroFilipina songwriter has definitely proven she can hold center stage. Performing since the age of seven, Omilani has been featured in many programs. She is most noted for multi-media, interactive performances of original works of neo-soul music, folkloric EXPRRESSIONS, tropical fusion/salsa and hip hop. Her eclectic vibe has become a very popular among all age groups.
Her love of languages has blossomed into a musical explosion that bridges language and cultural boundaries. Mixing Spanish, filipino, French, Portuguese, Arabic and Yoruba into her repertoire has added a unique twist to her show. Omilani feels that this diversity of her work enables her to reach a wider audience.
She is especially proud of the reaction of the youth to her positive and inspirational messages. Omilani hopes to inspire others to pick up a pen and write and to reach for their dreams without limitation.
