About DAP the Contract
Hailing from Lagos, Nigeria classically trained pianist and producer/rapper DAP possesses an inkling for creating incredible music. At an early age he was drawn to music through an entirely musical family. He started playing the piano aged 4 and passed his ABRSM Grade 8 Piano with distinction aged 13, and went on to attain a DipABRSM Performance Diploma on the Piano aged 17.
After high school in London, UK, 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, and on his departure after the summer released a mixtape titled GoodBye For Now.
He released his fourth mixtape GoodBye For Never, a sequel to GoodBye For Now, in October 2014. In May 2016, he graduated from Brown University with a Bachelor of Arts in Classics and Computer Music & Multimedia. Following the release of his Two Roads EP in April 2017 and the two-part Contract Thursday’s series later in the year, he is currently a student at Columbia Law School.
Although he is a relative newcomer in the music industry he fully intends on making his mark in a major way when it’s all said and done.
This is only the beginning.
