Chinonyeelu Uchechi Amobi, known professionally as Chino Amobi, is a [[UsefulNotes/{{Nigeria}} Igbo]] American electronic musician and artist. Although starting off as a traditional artist, Amobi began self-releasing music under the alias Diamond Black Hearted Boy on Myspace. He also became affiliated with the [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seapunk seapunk]] and [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slime_punk slimepunk]] scenes, while also working with various other electronic musicians to make the ''Blasting Voice'' compilation, which he would later re-release as a cassette tape titled ''Father, Protect Me.''. He would later drop the alias and then start going by his current alias after releasing his final work for the project, ''How The West Was Won, Wanted: Dead or Alive''.


It wouldn't be long before Amobi co-founded the record label, NON Worldwide, dedicated to artists of the African diaspora. And release increasingly experimental works such as ''Airport Music for Black Folk'' and ''Paradiso''.
