Oliver Ohene-Dokyi (OOD) Bio
Oliver started his love to making music, singing what-ever words he knew at that time while hitting cooking pots with wooden spoons mom gave him at the age of 3.
He enjoyed testing playing the guitar, and keyboards one year to the other and in 1988 his school friend Oliver playing the Guitar and singing
formed a band with him called: O.O.
The two O’s where OOD played the drums and Oliver T. (Absturz City) had their first super exciting gig being the supporting act for a german band called: Ostzonensuppenwürfelmachenkrebs and a solo act: King Rocko Schamoni
in a venue called Forum in Osdorf that used to be a meeting point for the youth and party place back in the days.
This real estate is now well packed with Flats.
O.O. grew into The Band: Cool Coon having Christopher (Bass) and Nick ( 2nd and more rythum guitar) playing a few gigs around the corners where he started to sing and play the drums.
After a while C and N left the band but another Oliver joined the 2 O’s playing a funky fabuloso bass.
That happened to be around 1991.
In 1992 Oliver got the chance to perform as a dancer next to the neue deutsche welle artist Frl.Menke and was introduced to the producers and Adrian Askew and Dieter Faber supporting Oliver’s talent big time and managing to record and sign a single Meine Kleine Fee with Sony Music in 1993.

Still mostly singing hooks for a german rhyming rap artists, Oliver got the opportunity to work with Frank Ramond. The songs yet didn’t tickle it…
Eric and Oliver also connected with Bülent Aris to record Oliver’s debut album based upon Eric’s and Oliver’s pre-productions and while time passed and Oliver got impatient, they didn’t continue working when Oliver met (another) producer from the Boogie Park Studio in 1996 to sign an exclusive author deal with warner chappell that oliver quitted in 2005.
Being interested in acting Oliver got the chance to act in some German movies/series such as Crash Kids with Marek Harloff (Oliver’s Role: Flip) or in 1999 in Zwei Männer Am Herd with Wolfgang Viereck (Oliver’s Role in one Episode: Luis – skip to 20:00min – Overacting and super nervous – something to laugh about and not much better at 39:45min 🙂 well…
