One World 5

"The world had every superstar before you, so don't try to give them another imitator. It did not have you. So shine on, believe in yourself and show them just who you are."

~Rod February

Stage Mist


One World 5 came about because Rod was searching for like minded artists to share his vision of uplifting artists in the community he was born in. He understands what it means to jump through hoops to get a start in the music industry. He also underst that many talents lie dormant in the communities in Cape Town, all due to financial hardships.


Rod reached out to the community and shared his music, paid for other artist's studio time and recorded 30 songs with 5 artists to give them a leg up and kick start their careers. One World 5 was born out of this venture and they grew from humble beginnings to being Finalists in the Issa Awards. Band of the year, Songwriter of the year, as well as,  Rising star of the year. One Wolrd 5 is very proud of their achievements and wants to share their voice with the world for a positive impact!

Hamilton Radio

" One World 5 has a refreshing sound with strong lyrics and  resonate with their communities. 

They boast strong harmonies and great voices."

"Leely's Song is an impassioned call for understanding Autism, being one of the most requested songs of the Indies."

KXRL Radio

Los Angeles

One World 5 is a group with strong harmonies, great social messages and a groove kicking song in "Snap Snap." The beat is funky and get's your feet tapping the moment you hear the first note. It climbed to #1 on the back of popular requests!

It's a strong message about bullying. Their sound is fresh and they do tap into their musical influences such as Santana and John Lennon. This comes through strongly and clearly in "Snap Snap. " with a Santana guitar lick in the solo. They have the courage to write lyrics that confront and highlight social Issues." 

Icon Mentors

Stephen Baker

"Rod has a very unique, strong voice. The song "Our World is Changing" is very deep and has poignant lyrics in today's world. It is delivered with passion and a melody that is tight. One World 5 has a lot to offer and I am looking forward to following their progress."
