12 years ago, two artists unknowingly crossed paths. Two incredibly mulch-talented young men grew from being friends in primary school to brothers from different mothers. Now consisting of 6 brothers the OverDose Music Group have developed into a ridiculous amount of talented, hard-working young men destined to achieve greatness.
This interesting story all began with Jimmy and Nick, longtime friends in primary school, the two did music and even wrote a song together which Nick jokingly described as “wasn’t any good, but we liked it” they thereafter attended different High Schools but was nonetheless reunited. Jimmy a member of M.A.D productions (Making A Difference) teamed up with Nick once again and eventually began doing a mix tape which they wanted to incorporate their birthdays into. Jimmy born on October 9th and Nick December 9th told a story of how October met December ‘OD’, which in time became the name of the group as M.A.D productions disbanded.
Hakeem aka Ghostman was a member of M.A.D Productions and helped began the OverDose group, Kidd OD a friend of jimmy’s and Nick fell in, Nathan joined up after writing a song called ‘Pushback’ with Jimmy and they met Yogi at the tribute concert for titanic who became friends in a short time and merged with the group.
This is currently the group’s first project and the others ‘still in work’. Their first two releases will be dropping today at the Escape concert with Swappi with whom they have not met, but is excitingly awaiting. When asked what were the highlight experience with the group? Nick replied “Definitely Jimmy performing at the Liv concert which enabled them to be a part of the Free Speech Project and his performance at Machel Monday 2014” which he proudly labeled “ That was epic, That was a lot”
