Odunsi was born on June 7, 1996, in Lagos State, Nigeria to Mr and Mrs Odunsi. He attended DanceHall High School in Ikeja before proceeding to Hallefield College in Maryland, Lagos, where he obtained his West African Senior School Certificate (WAEC).

Career
Odunsi The Engine began writing music while still in elementary school. He worked on various records that were produced for rising musical stars, including Boogey and Blackmagic, among others. Growing up as an artistic, middle-class child in Lagos, Odunsi was exposed to a wide range of musical influences, which is evident in his artistic creations.

He was unexpectedly featured on M.I. Abaga’s two projects, “Rendezvous” and “Yxng Dxnz,” as a result of his dedication and originality. He released an extended play called “Time of Our Lives (T.O.O.L)” in August 2016, and it quickly rose to the top of the charts with mentions on Apple Music, Soundcloud, and other platforms for “fresh out of Africa.”

His song “Desire” from 2017 saw a huge amount of playtime on MTV Base platforms in the US, UK, and other countries. He and Nonso Amadi released an extended play together named “War.”

Artistry
Odunsi’s music is a special fusion of various genres, including elements of EDM, R&B, Reggae, Soul, and Afrobeats. For the definition of his sound, which he describes as Afro-Fusion, Odunsi draws inspiration from these genres as well as diverse cultures.

Odunsi has inked a publishing contract with Warner Chappell Music, the division of Warner Music Group dedicated to music publishing. His name appears as an executive producer on Santi’s self-titled debut album.
