In today’s industry it is rare for an artist to be involved in the all round development of their image and craft, proving them to be hardworking. D.I.S Guise manages to do this, he is a masked multitalented young artist completely devoted to his music and art. D.I.S Guise wears a mask to represent the ambiguity of the people he chooses to represent, his music speaks this to you hence his face is merely a supporting factor to his sound. His influences include life experiences, African culture and western mentality. His Neo-Soul, Afro Hip Hop music addresses pop culture in the purest form. He aims to reconstruct the setting of society with his music, this unconventional rapper touches on topics commercial artist won’t dare near while using his creative, graphical and filmmaking abilities to bring his music to life in a visual form which is always appealing to the viewers. With his Mixtape “Number Thirty Adekunle village” he takes audiences on a trip through his childhood streets in hopes of reconnecting with the inner child of every individual. He has gone a long way from the contents of this mixtape but one has to know where he/she is from before he/she can get to their destination.

D.I.S GUISE is a young film maker, with background experience in music production and graphic design, he committed to music at a young age after watching then hip hop teenage acts such as Kriss Kross, Kid and play. D.I.S was born in west Africa, hence the African tropical sounds influence his songs, he was inspired to make music in the likes of Kidjo, Fela Anikulapo kuti, vyonne shaka shaka, Brenda fasse, and others mixed with hip hop and contemporary music.

As an adolescent, D.I.S GUISE was fascinated with the idea of disguises and how they could transform a person from one to another, he believed that everybody had at least 2 disguises to their everyday life, one wore for social acceptance and the other worn when we are being our true natural selves. D.I.S has chosen to wear both disguises and talk about issue that would not be brought up in the modern music society. D.I.S’s mask represents the faceless-ness of the everyday person he has chosen to stand for. “There are millions of people out there that have stories to tell but don’t have that pitchman, or voice to tell it to the world” he said, when asked what he does music for. GUISE knows that music is suppose to be a medium to express feeling about life, and since modern artist only seem to see the “bling bling” side of life, he has made it mandatory to address the young girl who wrongfully got rape, the government’s plot to control citizens, the single mother struggling to raise 4 kids, the immigrant fighting for his rights as a human being, the lover boy who got betrayed by his partner and the list goes on.
