Henry Ohanga, commonly referred to by his stage name Octopizzo is an award winning, recording and perfoming artist, humanitarian and an entrepreneur. Born in the sprawling slums of Kibera, Nairobi (considered one of the largest slums in the world), he purposed to earnestly pursue his career in music. Octopizzo currently has three albums named “Chocolate City”, “LDPC” which took the Number 1 spot on iTunes on its first week of release and “Refugeenius” which he collaborated with over 20 Refugees from Kakuma & Dadaab Refugee camps.

All these albums are available on iTunes, Tidal and Spotify. He is now a globally recognized artist who also has a strong passion for community outreach and youth empowerment.
He founded his not-for-profit Octopizzo Foundation in 2015 and through the Foundation, he hopes to use the uniting ingredients of creativity, Art, Music, Culture and Sports to support vulnerable youths to realize their potential and be liberated from the cycle of desperation and dependency. Octopizzo has performed in major events golabally and has been endorsed as a brand ambassador by several renowed companies like Coca-ColaSafaricom and Guinness. Equally, he has remained an active performing artist for the past 8 years and has consistently released hit songs every year while gracing some of the biggest festivals like Sauti za BusaraSafaricom Live and Shambala Fest in Manchester just to name a few.

He has partnered with UNHCR to start a dynamic and powerful initiative – Artists for Refugees, which encompasses his love for music, the Arts and Culture with those of the refugees – it is through their shared love for Art that he has been able to raise the profile of refugee artists and talent in this country. He is indeed the first Kenyan artist to speak up on refugee matters consistently and in a timely fashion. He has been identified, both in 2014 and 2015 as one of the most influential personalities speaking on refugee matters on social media. In 2015, he ranked 16th globally as one of the top voices on refugee matters.

His work with United NationsThe American Embassy in Kenya and The British Council in Kenya has seen him attend most vital and global decision making forums on matters of youths and Arts.
