Born Ollie Richardson, in the historic city of Savannah Georgia, Souljah Essoh is a man of many gifts and talents. Not only a recording artist, Essoh (Pronounced “S-O”) is also an Actor, Writer, and Minister (Assistant Pastor of Damascus Church; Lake City, Ga.). His love of music was cultivated at an early age. Being first exposed to the power of music within the walls of the church, it is easy to understand the reason his lyrics are filled with such passion, conviction, and soul. “I always knew there was something I had to do in life that involved music. I just felt It.” said Essoh in an interview with UCC Magazine.
