Inspired by 90’s era New York rappers Jay-Z, Biggie and Nas as well as modern day Canadian Hip hop artists Drake and The Weeknd, Shosho Dania broke through in late 2017 with the release of his debut mixtape on Soundcloud; “Everything’s Good Here, Vol. 1”. Shosho was born in Lagos, Nigeria and moved to The City of Calgary (in Alberta Canada) with his family at the age of fifteen. Though Shosho had been rapping since the age of nine and had aspired to be a rapper he took a break from recording after High School to focus on growing as a writer. In the summer of 2017 Shosho had open heart surgery to repair a bad valve caused by a congenital disease, while in recovery at the hospital he started making beats on his laptop with FL Studio. As soon as he got back on his feet he hit up the studio with his beats and recorded what would eventually be his debut mixtape “Everything’s Good Here, Vol. 1”. Since then Shosho has also released the well received commercial single “Dun No Y” which is a collaboration with Calgary based production duo Overnight Hits. On May 16th 2018 Shosho officially changed his stage name to Polo Sho when he released his second mixtape on SoundCloud; “No Feilings”. The mixtape was inspired by Lil Wayne’s 2009 mixtape “No Ceilings” as it is entirely made up of freestyles over popular Rap and RnB songs’ instrumentals. On November 30 2018 Polo Sho's third official mixtape; “Winter Waves Mixtape”, was released on SoundCloud by LiftedOne Records. On Valentine's Day 2019 Polo Sho & SOY (fellow label mate) released their well received collaboration album "Songs About Girls" on all major streaming platforms. On April 4th 2019 Polo hosted his first release show for the release of his fourth official mixtape; "No Feilings 2". On July 26th 2019 Polo Sho graduated from the Academy of Production and Recording Arts with a diploma in Audio Engineering. Polo and his LiftedOne Records label mates released their debut collaborative album "A Dying Breed" on all major streaming platforms on October 4th 2019. On November 7th 2019 Polo released a stunning cinematic music video for his single “South Side of The City” to promote the launch of the LiftedOne Records Atb BoostR crowdfunding campaign http://bit.ly/35A118g . The campaign was to raise money to create, market & tour his debut studio album for commercial success and a nomination for Rap Recording of the Year at The JUNO Awards! The campaign was a success! Polo was able to raise $5,050! With a portion of the funds Polo built a professional home studio setup, "Sounds Great Studios". The rest of the funds will be used to market and tour his debut studio album, "Determination", which he is currently working on and is set to be released November 30th 2020!
