Born in Lagos, Nigeria, BlkMazzy moved around as a kid until settling down in Antigua where he was raised. Soon after leaving high school BlkMazzy began taking his creative talents more seriously and went by the pseudonym, “KwamONe1”. As KwamOne1, he started recording and mixing for local acts, then a big break came when BlkMazzy got contracted by respected reggae singer “General P” to produce and mix songs for his album “Signs of Life” which almost went platinum in the first week of release.

 

BlkMazzy went on to record for a handful of stars including reggae stars like Beenie Man, Vybz Kartel , Movado, singer Taurus Riley and a handful of radio drops by international singer Akon.

 

After spending time recording and working with both local Caribbean and international artists at JMC Studios which was owned by brothers Craig and Gavin Christopher, BlkMazzy made very popular and powerful friends, but this wasn’t enough cause BlkMazzy has always been fascinated by air crafts and had acquired a private pilot’s license (PPL), so in 2008 he moved to Chicago to pursue his education full time in the graphic design field.
