Jojo Otseidu

Jojo is a bass singer, vocal percussionist, director and arranger who studied at Ohio State University. Jojo served as Music Director of Ohio State's top a cappella group, The Ohio State of Mind, for two years. In 2017, he made history by leading The Ohio State of Mind to the final round of the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA). This marked the first appearance ever of a group from Ohio in the final stage of the competition. Jojo was recognized as an “Outstanding Bass” at the 2017 ICCA Finals. The award is rarely given; Avi Kaplan (formerly of Pentatonix) is the only other bass singer to be recognized by the ICCA judges in this category. In 2018 he lead midwest super group "LUXE" to a 3rd place finish at the Aca Open in Carnegie Hall. Jojo has also been recognized with several Outstanding Arrangement Awards at Varsity Vocals competitions and has taught bass singing classes at CASA festivals. He served as a bass, VP and assistant producer for the a cappella show 'EVOC' and can be heard as one of two bass singers on Disney's DCappella's self titled debut album. Currently Jojo sings bass in and arranges for 'Backtrack', a professional group based in New York City.
