MUSIC CAREER & GENRE:
Started Rap In 2003 As A Result Of The Positive Influence I Had From A Friend Called SLASH D And A Church Monthly Concert Titled ‘LIBERATION HOUR’, In One
Church Called ‘ELIM CHURCH In Hood Called ‘YELWA’ In Bauchi.
I Started As A Gospel Artistes In A Group Called ‘CHRIST VICTORIOUS’ With My Friend SLASH D And His Younger
Brother Called CHESQUER.
We Never Recorded Or Performed A Song As CHRIST VICTORIOUS As A Result Of The Disappointments We Had In Often Times. After A Short While We Parted But I
Remained A Gospel Artist As A Soloist.
Kept On And Had The Chance To Do My First Performance In A Church At An Area Called ‘BAYARA’ In 2004.
Prior To Then,I Was Miming Foreign Artist Like 50 Cent,etc’s Songs On Lit Day In Secondary Schools.
I Was Bearing ‘DIAMOND D’ As My Stage Name At Then.
SLASH D Came Back To Me So We Can Reform A Group But This Time As Secular Artistes After Watching My Gospel Performance On That Same LIBERATION HOUR Platform We’ve Always Been Craving To Perform On.
Recorded Our First Song As A Group Called ‘D-HOOD,It Means DREAMS HOOD’ In 2005 And The Song’s Title Was
‘DA FLOOR’;A Party Rap Song Actually Inspired By SHAGGY’s ‘SEXY LADY’ Song.
After Recording A Couple Of Songs With SLASH D,We Parted Ways In 2007 And That’s How I Became A Solo Artist Again.Still A Solo Artist,I Later Changed My Name From DIAMOND D To B.O.C.
From Then Till Now,I Have Over A Hundred Songs To My Personal Credit.
I have Been On Over Five Hundred Features And Collaborations.
I’ve Always Been An Independent Artist.My Artist/ Management Deal With ‘TOSS A COIN’ Expired In 2010 But
Got Renewed In July 2013.It Lasted For 2yrs And Expired In July 2015.
Though Seen With Little Or No Impact On My Career,TOSS A COIN Aided The Shoot Of The Video Of One Of My Songs
Titled ‘ONE OF A KIND’ Which I Feature The Producer Who I Regard As My Major Producer So Far In Person Of ‘C
MAN’ And His Younger Brother Whom I Regard As One Of The Best Rapper Of Our Time In Person Of ‘BLACK BLINX’.We Were Actually TOSS A COIN Teammates By Deal Signatures.
So I Kicked Off As A Professional Musical Artist In 2013 And Still Strong Independently.
I Have Worked With Great Artists Not To Mention.
I Have Been On Several Radio,TV And Newspaper Interviews.
Languages Used In Music:
I Rap In English,Hausa(Local Dialect Spoken In Northern Nigeria And Some Neighbouring African Countries).I Also
Rap In Pidgin English And A Little Bit Of My Local Language(Zhar).No Limit To The Number Of Language In As Much As More Can Be Learnt.
My Influence Are:
The Thoughts Of What I See Around Me And The Product Of My Wild Thoughts,Likewise Any Artist Or A Fellow In Any Certain Line Of Profession Who’s Outstanding At What He Does.
I Am Presently Working On A Huge Project Titled ‘NO ENGLISH AND SORRY PLEASE THANKS’ ,It Is Actually A Mixtape/Album Project.
It Is Gonna Feature Artists All Around
