DAP is a classically trained pianist and producer/rapper. Born in Lagos, Nigeria, and coming from an entirely musical family, DAP started playing the piano at the age of 4, passed his ABRSM Grade 8 Piano with distinction at 13, and went on to attain a DipABRSM Performance Diploma on the Piano at 17. After high school in London, U.K., he attended the Berklee College of Music for two semesters as part of a gap year, with the intention of majoring in Contemporary Writing & Production or Music Production & Engineering. On his departure after the summer, DAP released a mixtape titled GoodBye For Now. He now attends Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, where he is majoring in Classics & Computer Music.
He has performed at Aurora, AS220 and Brown University (Providence, RI), Harbor Point and Eko Hotel (Lagos, Nigeria) with Bez Idakula, a well known artist (guitarist/singer) in Nigeria. He released his fourth mixtape GoodBye For Never, a sequel to GoodBye For Now, on October 27th, 2014. In late December he put out a joint project entitled Jam On Scones with Shane Chubbz under their duo moniker The Contract, for which they had a release show on November 29th in London at the renowned Saatchi Gallery.
DAP is currently working on his next project, and put out the 2-part single HEAV7N featuring Providence rapper NICE.
