About Paulina Oduro
Paulina moved to London at the age of nine, with her diplomat father and mother. Her interest in music began at an early age. Furthermore, her parents recognized her talent and enthusiasm for music. Therefore, they encouraged her, in addition to her normal education, to undertake formal tuition in music, learning to play classical piano.
However, her parent insisted she have a more stable career. Paulina therefore trained as a nurse. However, after three years she felt music was her proper calling. At the age of 21, she quit nursing to become a professional singer. She joined a reggae band called Casanova and within six months they released their first single. Her pedigree includes performances with such greats like Calypso King Mighty Sparrow, soca favourite Arrow, Lord Kitchener, Alexander O’neil and renowned Trinidadian singer David Rudder.
Paulina was also one of the lead female vocals with the Western Diamonds, the top Hi-life group in Ghana from the early to mid-1990s. Her solo debut CD, Woman Power, released in March 1999, was a reflection of her various musical influences and experiences over the years. It contained most genres of African music. Sung in both English and her native Fanti language in her inimitable vocal style, the CD could be described as the ultimate in modern African music.
