Dr Barz’ music is an expression of his vast life experiences, societal struggles and deep knowledge. With a voice texture and rhyme scheme likened to that of Kendrick Lamar, soul of J. Cole and the spirit of a Port Harcourt hustler, Dr Barz produces all shades of dope any day.
Born Victor Akpomon, Dr Barz is a uniquely versatile afro-hiphop music artiste. Born in the early 90’s in Benin, Nigeria and raised in the southern city of Port Harcourt, his love for music began from his early years as he started writing music at a tender age of thirteen in high school.
In 2017 he teamed up with a home based producer “Beatboxx Xclusiv” to release his first ever single - “PH City” which received massive local radio spins and fans reception. He released a series of singles afterwards alongside several online freestyle videos that went viral. In 2018, he released “This Is Pitakwa” inspired by Falz, made ties with ace producer KVC and together they recorded loads of wonderful projects, most notable was Gbege & GPH which earned him positive reviews worldwide, massive airplays and a guest performance feature at a TEDx event.
In 2019 he released the hit single Focus, his debut EP “Something Else” - a 6 track project consisting of versatile, spontaneous and magical musical sounds. Afterwards he was featured on a single by Erigga and a few days before his annual solo concert - Behind Barz, he released the single - “Behind Barz” an absolute banger! To wrap the year up he dropped 20s.
