Olatunji Oladotun Alade is from the Yoruba ethnic group in South-Western Nigeria. He was born in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria.
He attended Abeokuta Grammar School and is currently pursuing a degree in Physics Education at the University of Lagos.
He credits the start of his music career to winning a rap competition at the University of Lagos, where he was inspired by artists like as Da Grin, Davido, and Olamide.
After being featured on fellow U & I Music label-mate singer Akin’s hit “Make am,” which also featured Oritse Femi, Dotman began to acquire considerable notoriety.
With the premiere of the video for “Fine Girl,” he became more well-known. The University of Lagos 300-level Physics Education student observed, “It hasn’t been simple mixing music and school.” “I’m attempting to strike the perfect balance between the two.
I do go to classes, but not on a regular basis. I keep up with notes from classmates, but I don’t skip any of my tests or examinations. Dotman’s versatility and skill as a wordsmith is one of his defining characteristics as a rapper/singer.
He has wowed audiences by crafting punch line after punch line, with several of these lines becoming nearly famous. It’s a degree of originality that few people have attempted before.
“I’m trying to provide my own distinct sound,” he explained, “and I’m confident it’s something people haven’t heard before.”
In response to a question on where he gets his music ideas, he said, “They just show up. When I have a theme in mind or come up with one, I find it simple to write about it.
The songs I write are about various areas of life, such as money, lifestyle, and real life.
