Capital Breakfast With Roman Kemp 6am - 10am
You may know him as Fuse ODG, but he was actually born Nana Richard Abiona.
Fuse was actually born in London, but lived in Ghana to learn about his native culture until he moved back to the UK for secondary school.
So we know his real name is Nana Richard Abiona, but what does 'Fuse ODG' mean? 'Fuse' comes from his fusion of musical styles, and 'ODG' stands for 'Off Da Ground'. Simples!
Fuse's first single in the UK was 'Antenna', which also featured Wyclef Jean! It was released on 2nd June 2013 and debuted at No. 10 on the Vodafone Big Top 40 the following week.
You bet he has! Fuse walked away with Best African Act at the MOBOs in 2013 and again in 2014! Legend!
'Dangerous Love', which features Sean Paul, charted at No.4 on the Vodafone Big Top 40 in May 2014.
It's an Internet sensation! Millions of people uploaded their incredible versions of the dance to YouTube in 2013. We've been searching, but we still can't find David Cameron's attempt (probably for the best!)
Fuse released his debut album on 2nd November 2014. It's called 'T.I.N.A', which stands for 'This Is New Africa'
He is, so get practicing your Azonto! He's hitting venues up and down the UK in March and April 2015!
Calm down you eager beaver! But yes, you totally can! Fuse will be bringing a taste of New Africa to Capital's Jingle Bell Ball with Morrisons on Sunday 7th December 2014!
He's involved in charity work, becoming an active influence in helping young people realise their musical aspirations with a mobile studio in his local community. What a gent!
