Oza was very early to recognize the marketing power of the hip-hop world and youth culture. He started a campaign where he supplied unlimited Sprite to various DJs. He even organized a Sprite DJ summit where Coca-Cola was able to tap into the minds of some of the most influential people in hip-hop to make their brand more appealing to the urban demographic. Based on the feedback he received at this summit, Oza crafted an ad campaign that featured 5 linked commercials that told a connected story using Japanese animation and imagery from hip hop pioneers such as Afrika Bambaataa. The commercials were a smash hit. The final commercial aired during the Billboard Music Awards. Within a year, Sprite's sales had skyrocketed.

In 2016, Oza brought Justin Timberlake on as an investor and endorser of the antioxidant drink Bai. The Dr. Pepper Snapple Group bought Bai Brands for $1.7 billion.
