Divo One of the most promising talents to emerge out of Canada's underground hiphop scene, Divo has won much critical praise and commercial success for his eloquent word play and vocal abilities.

His love for hiphop began in the early 90s when Divo began expressing his creative lyrical abilities. In 1997 he was introduced to Dubble J who was then a popular DJ who regularly released mix tapes around the city. Divo was featured on his vol. 6 mixtape. They continued to work together as Dubble J began developing his production skills, which led to Divo's independent e.p. "Sparks of Friction" in 2000. This was the beginning of his formal career as a lyricist. Among other collaborations, it contained a song called "Bad Side Remix" featuring Classified from Halifax. This laid the foundation for what is now their successful independent record label called Q IT UP RECORDS. This label is dedicated to working with some of the most talented emerging artists, as well as established musicians in Canada and the United States.

Divo's constant determination for success has led him to collaborate on tracks with noted independent artists such as Classified. Divo appeared on two of Classified's albums: "Unpredictable" and "Union Dues". "Unpredictable" was nominated for Rap Recording of the Year by the Urban Music Association of Canada in 2000. The list of collaborations on Divo's new album include songs with Juno award winners Latoya & Miranda, Dan-e-o and Charisma from the Mighty Monolith, and Bishop who was featured on Choclair's album, "Memoirs of Blake Savage". Bishop is also the only Canadian contestant to make it onto Freestyle Fridays on the hit TV show 106 & Park on BET. Divo has also collaborated on tracks with Detroit-based Street Dreamerz and performed at their album release party. He was chosen to represent Canada in the hiphop category for's 2000 Worldwide compilation. He has been the opening act for Ghetto Concept and Choclair and his show set an attendance record at Inner City nightclub on January 27, 2001 in Kitchener. His first 12" single off the independently released new album, "The Evolution Theory," is entitled "Don't Believe Remix". It reached number 1 on the Canadian song countdown on the Lockdown Show 88.3 CJIQ FM in Kitchener for 4 weeks. His song "Feel the Rain" was also voted the number 1 new song of the week in the Next Level 2 contest a for the week of Sunday January 13, 2003. His song later went on to beat those of the other 12 finalists and he became the 1st place Grand Prize winner of the contest. This album also has nation-wide distribution. He has recently performed in London, Guelph, the Hard Knock Music auditions in Toronto and at his album release party with guest appearances by Bishop and Street Dreamerz at Elements Nightclub in Kitchener. Apart from his love of music, Divo also has a diploma in Graphic Design and does all of the graphic design and advertising work for Q IT UP RECORDS and it's affiliates. This includes the company's web site, which has been visited by over 50,000 loyal fans.
