This is Kevin “K.O.” Olusola, the beatboxing cellist. We’ve nicknamed the guy “K.O, the Sugar Cello” because of how sweet his music sounds. And Kevin isn’t just a talented cellist! He’s also a skilled beatboxer, saxophonist, songwriter, producer and singer. A man of many talents.
It’s pretty neat to hear pop culture hits played on an instrument invented more than 400 years ago. Here are three videos some of his best cello work, including Sam Smiths ‘Stay With Me’, move on to K.O.’s cover of Maroon 5’s ‘Sugar’, and a little Meghan Trainor thrown in at the end.

Kevin “K.O.” Olusola everybody!
