One of Africa’s most gifted rappers, David Adoga popularly known as OD (Overdose) is finally set to release his sophomore album titled – H.O.D.
According to the Rapper’s record label X3M Music, the album will record the events shaping OD’s life since he released his debut album titled,‘Don’t hate’ in 2006. “And there’s definitely going to be a lot about gadget, politics, women, wine and parties” a spokesperson at the record Label disclosed last week.
The album, HOD an acronym for ‘Hustle Or Die’, will feature some of OD’s SWATROOT buddies Mode 9 and Terry tha Rapman, as well as Sasha, Black Solo, and label mate Etcetera amongst others. The rapper also worked with Producers – Kraft, Ill Fingerz and Bernstein.
Born David Adoga in Kaduna, Nigeria, OD started his music sojourn in December 1998 and has worked with PayBackTime and KD World Records. He worked briefly as an OAP in Rhythm FM Jos in 2008 before he finally pitched his tent with X3M music in 2009.
