Oscar Rodrigues, born 24th August, 1982 in Luanda Angola. Music has always been a part of his life, from young he has been a big fan of the late Great Michael Jackson. He then moved to England with his mother in 1994 were he was thrown in the deep south west of London’s crowded concrete jungle, where he gained a passion for DnB, Garage and Hip-Hop. He knew then that he wanted to be part of the new urban movement being created on the streets of London by the So Solid Crew, which Oscar knows well and to become a rapper/mc just like his favorite artist the NOTORIOUS B.I.G. With new born responsibilities in late 2008, OSCAR decided to move to Cornwall and set up a promotion company called Nu leaf Promotionz ltd, were he successfully put on events in the summer of 2009 in Newquay with the help of friends and family. Donating some of the profits to local charities e.g. Joe way, Tanya’s Courage Trust, and Precious Lives Appeal. With the ambition of becoming an artist himself Oscar, Dhruv, and Bradley formed a group called Nuleaf Disciples, and they took the south west by storm with their original UK Grime and Hip-Hop sound, and with their new single “GET TO KNOW YA” . A big hit for the summer…..!!!!! After sometime he decided to make a break from the Nuleaf Desciples and go it alone. Then in 2011 Oscar approached Alive Music Studios (based in Wadebridge, Cornwall) to record a demo CD of his songs, but little did he know that when he walked through the doors of Alive Music that this would change his life and walk out of Alive Music with a record publishing deal under Alive Music Records label. Now with his new song release called “My Town” along with the ringtone available on iTunes, also the video release on Channelaka TV is now making headway in the music business. He is currently working on old and new songs to be released over the coming months, including a remix of a Song called Tweet Back original written by Wiley Artist.
