He tables a very dynamic music style and is sure to keep your eardrums entertained. Hollyhood derived from Hollywood (is his twist on being famous amongst his piers as a teenager) Kang (a twist to his actual name, Ogie, meaning “King” in Bini) After completing High School and starting college in Frisco, TX, USA, he dropped out because he realized his passion for entertainment; “I didn’t want to be just another doctor… I wanted to do music.” The freestyle Kang hopped in the entertainment industry in 2012. He began working as DCA/OAP and producer for Raypower FM Benin City, then a VJ, producer, and director for programs on AIT Benin City, a DCA/OAP and producer for Vibes FM Benin City, an intern with Viacom’s MTV Base, and a VJ, head of talent, and creative marketing team member for Reloaded. His job experiences created uncommon networking opportunities for him. This allowed him to rub shoulders with some of your favorite Nigerian celebrities, many of whom support and encourage his music career. Hit Hollyhood Kang up on your favorite social media;
