On another note, when Oladipo is not on the court you are likely to catch him practicing his other passion of singing. From admitting that his mom had him singing in church at 7 or 8 years of age to singing being a past hidden talent that has come to the light, Oladipo shows no signs of slowing down. Having sang Usher’s “U Got It Bad” at his alma- mater during Hoosier Hysteria and “New York, New York” at the 2015 NBA All-Star Dunk contest, Oladipo is no stranger to the main stage.
TMZ reports, “Whether he’s got a basketball or a microphone in his hand, Victor Oladipo is prettydamn impressive. TMZ Sports has video of the Indiana Pacers star busting out R. Kelly’s “I Believe I Can Fly” at a Florida water park earlier this summer and we gotta say … dude’s got some golden pipes. Here’s the thing … this wasn’t just a random performance … we talked with Oladipo about it, and he told us his rendition was part of a real deal talent show … AND HE TOOK FIRST PLACE!!”
Oladipo says, “It could be something feathery!” after mentioning in an interview that the majority of professional athletes that have pursued music have been rappers in the past, could he be one the first to break into the R&B genre and garner success? Oladipo has been in the studio with Trey Songz, Chris Brown, Eric Bellinger, and seen with artist Lil’ Wayne and more. Only the future will tell what will come out of such encounters, lets stay tuned!
