Henry Ochieng, whose stage name isOctopizzo, is a hip hop artist who hails from Kibera – the largest slum in Africa. Besides being a hip hop artist, Octopizzo is the founder of a number of community based organizations and youth groups including Young, Gifted and Black (Y.G.B.). Through these organizations, he empowers and helps bring to the limelight, the young but talented people who would otherwise never get out of poverty to prove themselves to the world.
This is his exact life story having come from a life of poverty and raised together with his other three siblings in Kibera as the first born, and eventually beating the odds, to becoming a success story in his youth.
Owing to this rags-to-riches story of his life, Henry, aka Octopizzo has proved a very inspirational person to whom the youth look up to as a role model. He has, therefore, received invites to speak to high school, college and university students.
He speaks with passion, understanding, and energy. Being a young man, he also puts the message across using the modern slang language, otherwise called sheng’, that the youth of Kenya understand. He also communicates and resonates with the youth through his songs.
The bottom line is that Octopizzo is the motivational speaker you need if you want to ignite the inner potential of the youth in your event/school/organization. He will deliver the determination and success message, energize the people in the meeting and motivate them to action.
