OzzyBosco’s compassion for others has no bounds, which is why he participates in several humanitarian campaigns that are part of his own NGO by the name of ‘OzzyBosco Smile Foundation’ (OSF). He constantly visits orphanages and schools to support children financially and emotionally, and he also performs for the kids to show them his love. Since his 10th birthday, he took up a tradition to celebrate his special day with those who face challenging life conditions.
So far, OzzyBee has been on the rise, and he still has his whole life ahead of him. Taking into account that he is only 11 at this time, there is nothing much to say about him, but what we have already told you is incredibly impressive for someone that young. We cannot wait to see what else he has in store for us and wish him many more years of his successful career in music.
