Blacko Blaze was raised in the church, he first discovered his musical interests at the early age of 5 by playing percussion. He progressed to be fluent with the piano by the age of 10. With music in his veins, Blacko knew music was his destiny.
He later left Africa in the late 90`s to explore the world. After experiencing life in different continents, he migrated to Canada.
Blacko’s work ethic was literally beaten into him by his elder mentor, Yomi Omidiran, a top Nigerian producer at the time, who would “lash” him every time he made a musical error. That forced Blacko to gain musical intelligence rapidly as a producer!! After spending tireless days, sometimes weeks at the studio at a time, Blacko remembers vividly hiding and sleeping on the floor under the mixing board table at night just to gain more experience in production while his mentor worked with the stars that came to record.
No stranger to the game, Blacko has produced numerous pieces of music and worked for various artists such as King Sunny Ade, Shina Peters, and a vast diversity of other recording artists around the world. Taking the industry more seriously as a business man, Blacko founded Dreamland Entertainment in 2008 in partnership with Biodun Kupoluyi the CEO of E247. Mr. Blaze also created Blacko Black Face Music.
