An overnight success story, Notion 88's eighth cover star, Omar Apollo, is dancing to the beat of his own drum.

And it’s clear to see that dancing to the beat of his own drum has paid off. After his success on Soundcloud, Omar Apollo has since released two EP’s and ‘Stereo and Friends’, which he dropped in 2019. Honest and soul-bearing, both projects are hard evidence as to why Omar Apollo has had such a rapid rise. With note-perfect yet raw vocals and vulnerable lyrics, Omar makes music for the masses, ensuring that in each track, you see a little bit of yourself. There’s something subconsciously relatable. The emotional vulnerability in his vocals are the kind that catch you off guard.
