In 2019, he garnered success as a runner-up in the Canada-wide “SiriusXM Top Comic Competition” and appeared on CBC’s The New Wave of Stand Up. He is one the faster raising stars in the country with is recent appearance on the newest Season of Canada’s Got talent on City TV (2022) and his debut comedy album with 604 Records called DADA PLAN . Ola has opened for international comedian Godfrey. He also flexes his creativity by creating sketches that he posts on his social media platforms. Ola is known for his fun, light-hearted comedy and uses his life experience as material – being raised in Fort McMurray in a Nigerian home, living in Vancouver and the contrast in values and views on life, religion and relationships.
