Agassi Babatunde Odusina,[1][2] better known by his stage name Sneakbo, is an English rapper.[1] His first song, "The Wave", peaked at number 48 on the UK Singles Chart[4] and he has since released a number of top 40 hits, such as "Zim Zimma" and "Ring a Ling" between 2012 and 2013.

After releasing music for over eight years, Sneakbo released his debut album Brixton in March 2018.

Early life[edit]

At a young age Sneakbo listened to the late rapper Tupac Shakur and pop star Michael Jackson.[5]

Legal disputes[edit]

Aggravated assault charges[edit]

Sneakbo spent three months incarcerated in Feltham Prison in late 2011 for threatening a woman in violation of an ASBO.[6]

Odusina was saved from an eight-month jail sentence by his song The Wave, which had charted three weeks previously - the day of the trial was 30 November 2011[1] and the song had charted at #48 on 5 November 2011[4] - with the Judge, Ian Bourne QC, commenting "You are someone who has some talent judging by what I have read and heard about you. You are fortunate in these times to have a job and support from your manager. I'm told all this is in jeopardy if I jail you today. I hope you realise I'm giving you a chance to stay out of prison and it is up to you to comply with the conditions [to not contact his victim and to live at his manager's home in Waltham Cross, Essex[1]".
