Iakopo, was born in Fountain Valley, California but spent much of his life growing up in Samoa where his passion for music was kindled. When still in high school, Artists such as Peter Tosh, Anthony B, Sizzla, and Bob Marley, influenced Iakopo to produce his first hit album ‘’Let Your Light Shine’’ in 2006.

The singles “Let Your Light Shine” and "Love Jah" made it to the top of reggae charts in the US, Hawaii, Polynesia, Asia and Europe. On top of that, ‘Let Your Light Shine’ sold 2.000.000 Downloads in the UK.

This lead to IaKopo sharing the stage with influential artists such as Israel Vibrations, Eeka Mouse, Junior Reid, Midnite, Collie Buddz, Messenga Selah, and Tribal Seeds.

The second album as Keys of Creation ‘’Born To Win’’ featured the Single ‘Heart of Polynesia’ , which won him the International Music Video Award for World Music, as well as being another #1 hit. It’s still considered as an anthem by Polynesians world
wide.

His success got Universal Music Japan interested in Iakopo and then working with him on a compilation CD featuring famous Hawaiian artists. This first project led to a collaboration with Infinity 16 on the single ‘Bounce’. Released September 28th 2011, it was the top sold single for two weeks.

Currently, Iakopo is working with internationally acclaimed producers Don Corleone and Citizen K, as well as famous Japanese producer Miki Douzan on recording his first EP, due to be released in spring 2012. It features Iakopo's diverse skills as an original
reggae/dancehall songwriter and performer.

Iakopo released his latest single 'FLY' on December 12th, 2011. It has already risen to be the top featured single on reaggeazion.jp, Japan's biggest reggae related website and download store.

When asked what keeps his musical fire going, Kopo replied, “I have to share my music... Music is the universal language of the soul that brings people together and can provide healing transformation. It did for me and I hope to now share what was given to
me with others”.
