Born in South London to his Italian father and Ghanian mother, Chozen Official knew from a young age that artistic expression would be a formidable force in his life. He started writing lyrics and rapping at 16, certain that he had found his purpose; a way to engage people in thoughts they may not otherwise have considered.
A regular on the British independent music circuit for the past 7 years, Chozen Official’s visionary artistry has seen much critical acclaim during that time.
Uncompromising in his antidote to modern day pop culture, Chozen began his ascent through the delivery of a distinct, heavy sound and often a strong sociological message. Originally backed by a metal band, Chozen’s gritty rap style drew the attention of press and peers alike, gaining support from the likes of Music Week, RWD, MOBO, 1Xtra, Radio 1 and Choice FM.
