Da Great Deity Dah

Real Name:
Damola Idowu
Profile:
Damola "Da Great Deity Dah" Idowu commands the mic supremely with an arsenal of explosive vocab and master knowledge of the universe creating complex tablets bearing dynamic imagery, ideologies, and prophetic insights.

Though DAH began his soulful expressions on this plane in the early '80s, October 1995 marked the genesis of Royal Alchemist Productions, DAH's own music production company through the premiere music release from Da Great Deity DAH, The Awakening Phenomena, an intense freestyle collaboration with Sykrit Mauwva focusing on the Million Man March and current world political issues. Over 115 copies were independently sold.

Da Deity saw even greater sales with the sample release of Holy Scriptures (which will be the title of his next project already underway), a collection of his demo tracks which sold over 140 copies. These sales were surpassed when Life Or Death The EP generated combined vinyl and cassette sales of over 3000 units expanding Da Deity's audience throughout DC, Atlanta, New York, St. Louis, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Tallahassee, Nebraska, New Jersey, and internationally to Tokyo, Romania, Belgium, Puerto Rico, and Australia. The EP received a top review from the Sydney, Australia-based hip-hop magazine Vapours.

Cerebral Warfare and To Take Hip-Hop Back followed Life Or Death The EP, respectively and have also circulated globally branding DAH's lyrical prowess into hip-hop's remarkable history. Thembisa Mshaka boasted of To Take Hip-Hop Back in Gavin magazine's March 13, 1998 issue. This record is phat from top to bottom! For starters, a lovely melodic sample driven by strings and chimes assists Deity Dah in his lyrical seduction of the microphone. He even kicks science in an imaginative fashion, musing on interludes with some of hip-hop's flyest females.
