The song ‘Exceedingly’ was produced at the 1717 AudioLab, mixed and mastered by uber dynamic mix engineer Dr Sankty.
LIVING MY LIFE
The duo now known as God’s Own Radicals was formed in 2001 when three young undergraduates of the then Ogun State University now known as Olabisi Onabanjo
University, Ago – Iwoye, Ogun State in the South – Western part of Nigeria met at a local fellowship. They had in common a passion for hip-hop and rap music and observed there was a vacuum in this genre of music in their environment.
The Trio of Daddy D, Don – L and Donna –T started out by miming songs of foreign rap and hip- hop artistes and progressed into writing, composing and arranging their own material and ministering in their local fellowship and at other concerts in and around the University environment. The moniker: God’s Own Radicals came up as a result of the fact that at the time they started rap was not popular as a genre of gospel or contemporary Christian music as it was seen as too secular. Thus stepping out and doing something against the established norms made them radicals of some sort.
God’s Own Radicals is now left with Don – L and Donna – T as Daddy withdrew from the group upon his graduation from the University. Together they have continued to record songs
working with producers like the award winning Biglo, Pagag McOyett, E Twinz, Dr Sankty, Kayode Omotade, 2009 Channel O Music Video Awards nominee The Dream, E Kelly amongst others. They have shot videos directed by multiple award nominee Ak One which have received generous airplay on stations around the country and on the continent on both Terrestrial and Satellite Platforms.
With 2 full length Studio Albums (Under Construction – 2010 and 20DOZEN: The Call – 2012) and a 17 track mixtape (UNLEASHED: VOL1 – 2011) God’s Own Radicals employ a sound that is distinctly Nigerian with thumping drumlines and driving beats as well as the use of indigenous languages along with the English language in their songs. The songs cover a wide range of subjects with emphasis on the praise of the Most High God as well as the daily living.
Now married to each other, Don – L and Donna – T are determined to keep spreading the Word.to the ends of the earth.
G.O.R. has shared stages with other contemporary Acts such as BOUQUI, Rooftop MCs, Frank Edwards, TB1, Dr Sankty, Viva among others.
