“Oba was a tour de force for The Ray Bradbury Storytelling Festival. Oba William King recently received fine reviews as an exchange place storyteller at the National Storytelling Festival. The National Storytelling Festival is the country’s premier venue for storytellers. Next up, Oba will be a featured performer at The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. ” ~ Jim May, Award-Winning Nationally Touring Storyteller
“King pounded drums, recited poetry, told African stories and leapt around the stage with an infectious energy that soon had the audience swaying and shouting.” ~ The Eagle, Bryan-College Station, Texas
“King called upon his background in Shakespeare, dance, poetry and underground theater to include sound effects, mime, comedy and music. At times, he channeled Bill Cosby, The Three Stooges and Mister Rogers. Although King’s work is inspired by ancestral art forms, it would only be part of the story to label King an African storyteller.” ~The Chicago Tribune, Chicago, Illinois
“He has a gift for engaging young people of all age groups,” ~ Toni Simmons, Zula B. Wylie Public Library, Cedar Hills, Texas
“One of the best children’s tellers I have ever seen” ~ Linda Goodman, Nationally Acclaimed Storyteller
“Students and adults are engaged and inspired by Oba…” ~ Robert Eriksen, Sun Foundation
