About ThisisDA

ThisisDA (pronounced This is D.A.) is the stage name of David Aidoo; a 19 year old English Hip-hop musician. Born in London, the rapper uprooted to Bristol with his family at the age of 6, spending much of his time between both cities. Two years his junior; ThisisDA is an avid supporter of his younger brother, an artist by the name of Just Scribble – whose sketches have garnered him thousands of fans across the world and the attention of countless names within the rap sphere.

The rap singer is an experienced performer, having graced stages at countless events. One of which, notably, on the BBC Introducing stage at Brisfest in September 2012, which in turn earned him support from the BBC Introducing platform. The following month he appeared as a supporting act for prominent UK Urban artist Tinchy Stryder at the press opening of a new youth centre in Bristol. By the closing week of that year, ThisisDA was featured as the Spotlight Artist on the BBC Asian Network’s Kan D Man & DJ Limelight show.

Often characterised as producing a reminiscent style of boom bap Hip-hop; DA has received a plethora of airplay on radio stations such as BBC Introducing in the West, the BBC Asian Network and Amazing Radio. Due to this, his music soon caught the attention of an A&R who subsequently picked up his music to feature on a rotating playlist across hundreds of retail stores within the UK and Ireland during the closing quarter of 2013. This specific year saw the rising talent earning his first co-production credit on his own song, after being selected for the 3030 project with Roundhouse/EMI.
