About BLK Orpheus
I was born in Lagos, Nigeria and ever since I can remember I've been in love with music. My mom used to say that(cue embarrassing moment)she couldn't take my brother and me anywhere because if we heard music, then we would just start singing and dancing.
My family moved to New York in '97 and that was where I first heard hip-hop (and yes, it really was like the feeling that was described in the brown sugar movie).
My brother and I went back to Nigeria for High School but came back to the states every summer and as a result of meeting and conversing with people in airports I developed an almost eclectic love for all musical styles. I picked up a mic in 11th grade for a performance that me, my brother and a few friends did.....and since then there's been pretty much no looking back.
I hope to one day own my own label and work with real people who truly understand music (not some of the sorry excuses for musicians that some record labels try to shove down the throats of the public).
