Osa was born to the family of Mr. Joseph Omorodion and Mrs. Vivian Omorodion on the 27th Of August 1992. Eight days after his birth, he was christened Osamede Omorodion.
Osa is a Nigerian by birth, as both his parents hail from the South-South geopolitical zone of the country. He is an indigene of Edo State, with Benin City his hometown. Alongside his three siblings – Ebuwa Omorodion, Osaze Omorodion, and Osasere Omorodion – Osa was raised in Benin, in a Christian environment.
Growing up, his parents ensured that he and his parents didn’t lack any good things and made sure that they were trained with good moral standards.
Osa‘s interest in music can be traced back to his childhood, where he attended weekly services at his local church, as he came into contact with the music being created by the church’s choir. This piqued his interest in the field, and he often looked forward to the time when he could also begin to sing beautifully like some of the choristers he admired.
This interest was further built by listening to Hip-Hop, Highlife, Gospel, Classical, R&B, Soul, and Pop music by African and Western musicians, via the radio or cassette player in his house. However, it was until he grew older that he decided to give music a shot.
Raised in a middle-class family, Osa had access to quality education.
He attended top private schools in Benin for his elementary, middle, and high school education. He passed out of high school with flying colors, scoring good grades in his SSCE.

In a matter of months, he became versed in the art of sound production and engineering and so started producing beats for his own songs.

Considered to be one of the revealing Afrobeats songs of the year, Flash helped increase Osa‘s fanbase as more people began to groove to his music. The singer had emigrated to the United States Of America by this time.
