A-verse comes through with his official debut single ‘Trouble’. The classic hip hop joint produced by BeatJockey, expresses the terror believers pose to the devil.
The talented rapper complements the heavy instrumentals with creative punch lines, making use of English and indigenous languages with such a spontaneous flow.
Here’s A Story About A-Verse
Okesola Ayomipo, popularly known as A-verse, is a recording and performing artiste, OAP and a Graphic/Print Technologist from the South-Western part of Nigeria. He is known for his perfect blend of English and Indigenous vocals on beats.
Born in the mid 80’s, Verse (as shortly called) started music as the youngest member of his local church’s choir, but his musical influence could be traced to his father love for music before and after he became a preacher. Verse would listen to various artistes ranging across genre on his father’s vinyl player.
He was introduced to Hiphop by his older cousin who used to play Tupac almost all day. He started listening to various rap artistes; majorly Nas, Jay Z and later Eminem, before he started writing his own rhymes.
Verse pursued a career in secular rap and almost got signed to Edge Records, but his ‘‘preacher-boy’’ background held him back till he found the real purpose for his gift; which is to glorify YHWH, the giver of the gift.
Verse started writing cleaner and more faith based songs even before listening to his first CHH song (Shocktherapy by Rooftop MCs) several years later he met Gamie (fka Gameman), Wallz, Rapsodee andXL2letters; those who would later become his friends and members of the same clique (RRHP). Months later, he attended a concert put together by them, and the rest was history.
He has previously featured on several tracks including Wallz’ R4CS (Rap 4 Christ Sake) and RRHP’s WAZOBIA. and has also made covers of several songs
