"Onye has been a consistent force for peace on the SRHS campus for years. As a featured performer and speaker at our annual Multi-Cultural Events, Onye has always spread his inspiring messages of hope, love, and community. He can introduce students to African culture via interactive music and dance, and he can hook them with his positivity and inclusiveness. Onye is a treasured local resource, and he takes his role as cultural ambassador very seriously. We beg him to come back each year, and the students can hardly wait for the collaborative drum-jam at the end of his lunchtime shows. Keep authentic, diverse cultural experiences alive in the SF Bay Area - support Onye and his mission."
