Born Oji Kymani Sutherland, Wilwa Mobsta is all about music, he doesn’t even like discussing his age as he thinks that people’s expectations and perspectives are often swayed by irrelevant information like age and he just wants his talent to speak for itself.
Wilwa Mobsta was born in Waterhouse, Kingston and has moved around a lot in his life and currently resides in St Thomas.
Wilwa’s main musical inspirational is his older brother, Wilwa has tried to replicate his older brothers styles and flows before creating his own. He is also heavily inspired by Nina Simone, Mutabaruka and Twins of Twins.
He describes his musical style as free flowing from the heart, he loves dark and gloomy melodies with this being his preferred style of music.
His stage name Wilwa was taken from his father who passed away in 2016. He choose this name so that he always has a part of his father with him. He added his own meaning to it over the years and now sees it as “being one self in any situation, being wise, and not allowing the opinions of others to dictate your actions. Stronger and wiser when I’m alone”
