Next Up Music PR

Introducing Dide, the man who balances the life of being a professional footballer alongside a releasing and performing artist. From humble beginnings, Dide has utilised his skills and now musical talent to transform the lives of himself and his loved ones. Now as an artist, Dide embodies the aspirations of generations striving to fulfil their dreams.

Dide began creating music as a hobby, a creative outlet, and a form of self-therapy to process his journey through the footballing culture that surrounded him. Having surpassed the levels of money and notoriety, he now seeks a bigger purpose: to break the stigma surrounding athletes and the public perception of their lifestyle. Through his extensive football career, Dide has faced public scrutiny, physical injuries, racism, financial exploitation, loneliness, robbery, and personal sacrifices, all of which have taken a toll on his mental health. Yet, his passion for the game remains unwavering, and his desire to grow in all directions is consistently omnipresent.

Dide's music career took off with his debut single ‘Thrill’ in 2023, which amassed millions of streams across multiple platforms. Since then, Dide hasn't stood still in 2024 and is back with his brand-new single, ‘Mental’. This track was written as a form of live-time therapy as Dide processed his emotions, lifestyle, and situation. His intoxicating flow, reminiscent of some of the best British rap artists like Dave, Clavish, and Potter Payper, creates a world that is entirely his own in ‘Mental.’

His openness and honesty are refreshing in a footballing world where expressing mental health and emotions is often discouraged. In this melancholic grime rap single, Dide embraces the chaos and excess of his lifestyle, raising awareness and giving fans a unique insight into his craft.

With the dedicated following he has amassed over the past year, Dide promises to take his act to the stage with some exciting live performances over the coming months.

Dide is proving to be a symbol of resilience and authenticity with this release. ‘Mental’ is yet another testament to his talent, proving that he is a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.
