Born in Lilongwe, Malawi, Artistic OP did not grew up in a musical family. He started to get into grips with music when he first discovered hip-hop. This gave him a sense of belonging and Hip-hop was his musical family. He kept nodding his head every time he listened to a hip-hop tune from primary school to secondary school. Then he started composing his own songs after writing his MSCE exams in 2014.
Later, in 2015, he resumed his school career studying marketing at the Malawi Assemblies of God University (MAGU). Where He gave his life to Christ and exercised his life as an artist through engaging in different performance arts. He also began to showcase his talent in various venues across Lilongwe as a solo artist. During his studies he managed to release his first project “Prodigal Son EP” in November of 2018 which contains a message of forgiveness and reconciliation. Registered under Copyright Society of Malawi (COSOMA) the EP is Available on https://www.spiritunez.net/artistic-ophenie-prodigal-son-ep/
Now the rapper is focusing more on his musical ambitions to get into unexplored territories by creating new and unpredictable cycles of thoughts giving voice to the voiceless, hope to the hopeless and salvation to the unsaved. His goal is to be an artistic often and who he claims to be, “Artistic OP”
