“Offici8l” was started in 2008 by group member, T.O. which started out as an after school activity he created at Kirby High School, with 8 friends. They began entering talent shows and singing national anthems at various basketball games, and was always known as “the singing boys” around school. “Offici8l” has appeared on multiple TV shows, and made it to the second round of “X Factor”, which was later cancelled before release. They’ve also shared stages with such mainstream artists like: “Teyani Taylor” (Tyler Perry’s: Madea’s Family Reunion),” Jacob Latimore” (Mindless Behavior), “The Barkays”, “Genuwine”, Memphis’ own “K. Michelle”, “Pleasure P.”, “Bobby Rush”, just to name a few!
Not only do these guys have amazing vocal skills that will give you chills down your spine, but they also have a sex appeal that the ladies can’t seem to resist. I have also had the pleasure of inviting these guys to perform at multiple music competitions of mines back in 2010 & 2012. They were amazing, and still amaze me today!
“Offici8l” has been recognized by the likes of many big names in the industry from — Mindless Behavior, Robert Curry of Day 26 (making the band), Savage life Ent, Epic Records, Big Mike Robertson, Hamilton Park, Freeway Ricky Ross, A&R Scoe Walker — & was Scouted out by A&R Nate Butler himself. They were also Named 1st. place winners out of over 50 acts in the “Who Got next” Contest sponsored by Roc Nation, and also won many more local showcases.
