New York City based Nigerian musician Docsam who grew up in abject poverty in Africa has both God and music to thank for his life today.
First things first. Docsam has been different in both mindset and determination especially with regard to the urge to achieve greater goals.
Music saved the musician in different ways having started a dancing group called known as Bling Bling , together with his best friend at age 13 /14 in IMO State Nigeria.
He would then begin writing professionally at age 15 having drawn his inspiration from legendary rappers like Fela Kuti, Nas, Jay Z, Tupac and Snoop. Rap for him has been one of the loudest voices to champion against harsh living conditions. Thank God it all came to pass.
Docsam’s foundation in music dates back to his days in college where he performed in small and big stages. He admits singing or rapping or singing to sleep with the hope of a better day every day and night.
In the end he started making Afrobeats, Afrohiphop and Trap Music to keep the dance at its best in people and also to celebrate and enjoy life. Most importantly he is proud that his music inspired hopeless youths who can attest to it today. For Docsam , music is therapy since he has experienced how therapeutic it has been to both his fans and himself.
