THE JOURNEY

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.

Since, Chozen has been refining his musical offering, diversifying into an authentic mix of rap and orchestral accompaniment to create a new, mature sound. With collaborations from longtime creative partners, Max Stone (XFactor) and Sky Adams (Phrased Differently), Chozen is now ready to embark upon his next chapter.

For the past year, Chozen has been taking his artistic vision to live audiences across London, having performed at The Tabernacle, being the first rapper to headline at Union Chapel and  Wiltons. Chozen was also invited to perform at Hammersmith Apollo by MBE Paulette Randall and Sir Lenny Henry as part of anti-knife campaign, ‘It’s No Joke’.

With this experience, Chozen Official is now looking forward to continuing to deepen his relationship with his fans via more live shows and the creation of his long-awaited first album.
