Sandal rapping, always napping, napped headed black boy
Born on November 30th 1994 as third of six children, in the city of Kampala, Uganda, to South Sudanese parents. Shortly after birth, his family immigrated to Canada where he now resides in Calgary, Alberta.
Growing up in the city, he was introduced to hip hop and r&b music by listening to his older brother and older sister’s playlists that had the likes of Ms. Lauryn Hill, 2Pac, Wu-Tang Clan and more. These artist drew him towards the arts as he grew.
In collage as he shifted towards a poetic hip hop style, he chose the name Oliver Throne being inspired by artist names like Frank Ocean and Lupe Fiasco.
Writing under the alias, he is a rapper, producer, songwriter and poet. Though originally beginning art in the poetry scene, to him “the art is not just a form, it's a lifestyle, a way which I interpret reality and its mysteries.”
