CocoIce, born Mojisola Serah Sowole, is a Nigerian rapper, songwriter, content developer, influencer, entrepreneur and fashion designer.
The versatility of her creativity is enormous and is considered to be her biggest strategic advantage.
She hails from Ogun State, in the southwestern region of Nigeria. Born and raised in Lagos Nigeria, her early days exposed her to the rich and diverse music culture of her environment, thereby having an early influence on her. Known within her mates in her early school days for her love for rap music, she started to entertain at every social activity in school and otherwise.
CocoIce draws her rap inspiration from listening to great rappers such as Eric Sermon, Mase, Notorious B.I.G, Lil Kim, Diddy and Heavy D. With a pen in hand, her creativity knows no bound. Whether for rap editorials which she also got into at her early teen days or fashion, which is another beloved craft of hers today.
Her early sojourn into editorial journalism exposed her into writing for the most widely read youth campus magazine publication – Acada Magazine. Her “Tito’s Diary” segment was a hot favorite for her esteemed readers, with the magazine reaching over 15,000 students monthly across several campuses within and outside Nigeria.
Going back to her first love; music, she started working and making music in the late award winning producer – OJB’s Studio ‘Silver Points Beat’ and released her first single titled ‘Get Nutty’ featuring May D in 2009 and it all took off from there.
