Simon Ndlovu was born in Zimbabwe in May 1994 and raised in North West Province, South Africa. He currently resides in Johannesburg. Professionally known as BQ PRO (Blaqman Pro) he is a South African Best Producer, Artist, Graphics & Motion Video Editor and Record Label executive (Young Entrepreneur) BQ PRO developed a love and interest in Hip Hop Music and Dance Hall at the very young age of twelve and was subsequently inspired by the likes of AB Crazy, Soko, Jozi, NE-YO, Akon, Vybz Kartel and Dr. Dre who motivated him to try his hand at producing and beat-making.
Nothing since has stood between him and the love he has for his music.
Starting off as an aspiring producer and dancehall artist BQ PRO started making changes in his private arrangements such as converting his bedroom into a recording studio. As he made these changes his fan-base expanded and the positive responses from his followers to his craft multiplied. It was then that BQ PRO realised it was time for him to step up to professional production. This was when he decided to introduce and found the record label Blaqman Productions.
The record label was founded in 2014.
Through his professional work and craft at Blaqman Productions BQ PRO was able to make his way through the Social Youth Calling and became known in the Sedibeng Region and much of Gauteng Province for his true Hip Hop, Retro Hip Hop, RnB, Kasi Rap (black South African rap), and Dancehall.
BQ PRO is also a talented composer and writer of music.
While growing his fan base BQ PRO built relationships and alliances with young talented artists and helped them on their way to becoming semi-major stars. Among others these included artists such as Mxolisi, Minister(Producer), Treasure Africa, General Breanten, JKgotso, TJ DA Zulu, Kilo, Yvng Steez and Kat Scavanger.
