It all started the very moment he was born. On a spring day in the middle of rainy season, Nigeria saw a new star come into this world.
CCSO entered as second to last child of a big loving family, where the father was a recognized DJ and the grandmother a well-known solo singer.
With all this heritage his path was set.
As a 5-year old boy he ran around the neighbourhood, singing Oliver De Coque´s pieces to anyone who would listen. That was followed up by Dolly Parton, Everly Brothers and Simon & Garfunkel.
When he hit his teenage years he started playing keyboard in the local church band.
He later left the village and moved to Lagos, where he continued his musical work in a catholic church as a keyboardist and singer. Together with some friends and church members he started a band. From being the very best tenor in that church at the time, he had no problem getting his band into work. When they started playing covers in wedding ceremonies, word spread quickly. They kept busy, playing at several weddings every month uptil the day he decided that Nigeria was no longer enough for him.
He ended up in Sweden and got to know a pastor who saw his potential and gave him a leading role in the church choir. While doing this, CCSO also entered a music class, in Swedish called “studiecirkel”, where he sang and played. The class teacher quickly discovered his talents and gave him the assignment to write a song of his own. People had asked him before, but he had always turned them down. This time he thought he would give it a go, and Bountiful Blessing was born.
