Background of OV 
Christened Barbara Naa Okailey Nyarko at birth, she is known in the music circles as OV while her spectacular touch of writing and delivering her verses on her songs earned her the name “Okailey Verse”.
The fast-rising multitalented young artist who was born on December 4th, 1998 attended Ghana Senior High school – Koforidua in the eastern region where she started off as a dancer and later on added singing. Her dancing exploits made her known to schoolmates and the public as “skelebarbs” as she became very popular.
O.V has netted several Awards and certificates as the best dancer in her senior high school days, but upon completing she gave all up and followed the one thing she is most passionate about – her musical career.
