*“In 48 hours we had a whole project. It was a great experience,” said Hip-Hop’s Odillia about recording a remix of her debut single “End of the World” featuring rapper Lil’ Keed setup by Lukevision Enterprises. “The song is doing great.”
Odillia is a prodigy child whose mother sharpened her artistic skills with ballet lesson at the age of six. A Hip-Hop dance instructor noticed her inability to sit still and advised her mother to put her in his Hip-Hop classes, where she became a B-Girl. By the age of 16 she had left home to pursue her love of the arts as a dancer, singer and rapper. Her dance skills as a B-Girl garnered an appearance on Holland’s “Got Talent.” On the televised talent showcase Odillia’s B-Girl dance troupe placed second. The notoriety from the show enabled them to travel around the world performing.
“I love people. Happy music is so powerful,” said Odillia, who was born Frederique Odillia Henriette Hochstenbag in Maastricht, Netherlands.
Odillia describes her sound as Hip-Hop/Pop with House Music vibes. In 2019 Odillia showcased her vocal skills on BBC’s “All Together Now” talent competition and also relocated to Los Angeles. Not long after settling in she signed with Lukevision Enterprises for representation, found a label and immediately went into the studio.
When I asked about her experience recording her debut single with Atlanta based rapper Lil’ Keed she said, “…Our managers linked us together. We wanted a remix version. We’re also working on my new song.”
Now 24 years-old Odillia is well on her way to making her own foot-prints on the Hip-Hop culture and I look forward to seeing her accomplish her musical dreams.
“Long term, I want to take over the world with my music. I have a positive message in my music…it’s about more than being an artist,” Odillia pointed out about her motivation and dreams for the future.
