Barbara Naa Okailey Nyarko, popularly known as ‘OV’, is a multi-talented, young and versatile artist expressive in the genres of Reggae, Dancehall & Afropop.

She was born on the 4th of December, 1998 and rose through the academic ranks, ending her secondary education at Ghana Senior High School located at Koforidua in the Eastern Region.

Her first love in the world of entertainment was as a dancer, although her passion was singing.

Since infancy, she expressed a keen interest in playing the guitar, however, due to her initial talent of being an excelling dancer, she was nicknamed by schoolmates and the public as “Skelebarbs”.

Her efforts were eventually rewarded when she received several certificates acknowledging her as the best dancer in her year group during her senior high school days.

Her musical journey gained momentum upon completion of her Senior High School education. ‘Skelebarbs’ died only for ‘Okailey Verse’ to resurrect in its place.

Okailey Verse (OV) recorded her first single with Reynolds The Gentleman – a multi-instrumentalist and producer, after he discovered her on Instagram.

This gave OV the opportunity to perform in some known venues across the capital such as “Piano Bar ”, “Serallio” & “Badu Lounge ”. She also had the opportunity to open up for some renowned mainstream Ghanaian artists like Gemini, Ayigbe Edem and more.

OV pursued her dream and followed up with three singles namely ‘Kambu’, ‘My Mind Dey’ & ‘Akoto’.

It was at this juncture that she enrolled into THE 7th season of Ghana’s biggest music reality tv show and contest,‘MTN Hitmaker’, popularly known for establishing some industry giants like KiDi, Kuami Eugene and Kurl Songz.

After several vigorous weeks of delivering soul-stirring performances, OV emerged as the overall winner of the much-coveted prize package.

It constituted 100,000 Ghana Cedis (20,000USD) and getting signed unto Burniton Music Group – an Independent record label owned by 42-time award-winning Reggae/Dancehall act, Stonebwoy.
