By his junior year the charismatic vocalist became a favorite among students who packed out school venues just to hear Rotimi’s sultry sound. After selling 800 copies of his mixtape “The HG Compilation” in two weeks on campus, Rotimi established himself as a Midwest staple and began focusing on expanding his repertoire to professional acting. Playing a young soldier in “Salt N Pepper” and the leading role of Julius in the gospel musical “Tell Hell I Ain’t Comin,” Rotimi gained recognition from director Marcia P. Samuel who described the actor as a “tremendous talent” with vocals reminiscent of a young Michael Jackson.

Rotimi has shared the stage with America’s Best Dance Crew and award winning Jabbawockies dance team. As an opener for international superstars rapper T.I., Estelle and NERD, Rotimi has solidified his standing as one of the brightest up and comers in the business. With his newly released hit single “Beautiful Music” securing hundreds of Myspace and Facebook plays a day, Rotimi is on track to developing himself as a capable artist and industry force. In 2009 Rotimi has already raised the bar, headlining for several Northwestern University events including Dance Marathon. Educated and self-confident, Rotimi blesses his music with an artistic edge and unparalleled showmanship. Currently Rotimi is preparing to launch into a three tier marketing campaign that will attack airwaves, computer monitors and TV screens across the country.
