ORIGIN STORY: Camidoh is the first of three kids. He spent most of his childhood in Ho because his mum was a teacher in OLA SHS where he schooled. He went to St Anthony DayCare Ho, Nileem Preparatory in Ho, JHs Rijnbeek Catholic School and had his Secondary School education in Bishop Herman College (BIHECO) and moved to Accra for his Tertiary education, studying Marketing in the University Of Professional Studies (UPSA). Young Camidoh was unaware of his musical talent until his cousin introduced him to Akon’s music before he went into Junior High School. He loved his sound and got inspired to do music. That’s when he realized he could make a career out of music swaying away from his love of planes which made him want to be a Pilot.
In 2008, he professionally started making music. Camidoh realized he’d need to present himself as a full package before hitting the music scene so he became a studio assistant for a producer called Eddie Kay for 2 years.
From there, he went to AFS Productions.
He has produced for a number of artistes, including Rachel Bloom’s Hello
He met Darkovibes on a visit to Omar Sterling’s house and that was where he and his label decided to get Darkovibes on the song.
ART SOUL: All of his music is drawn from emotions
INFLUENCES: Akon, Sarkodie
MUSICAL STYLE: Camidoh is an exceptional singer with a knack for performing his music live. He draws from his emotions to give listeners a unique feel to his music.
