Please introduce yourself, what you do, why you do it, and what you want people to know about you.
I’m Dajur Mobley, OBM Once Broke Millionaires clothing brand owner & music artist “Prince Dajur”.
Being a Vocal Music artist gave me my confidence & drive to want to keep living after I didn’t go to college for sports. It’s a heartbeat for me to keep me going in life.
My 2 favorite genres are Pop & Hip-Hop.
OBM Once Broke Millionaire is a movement, mindset, clothing/music brand & what my whole life story has been about.
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
What sets me apart from others is most haven’t put their livelihood on the line for something they believe in like I did.
Anything could’ve gone wrong but I still took risks & lived in different states to get that WIN. OnceBrokeMillionaires
Describe THAT moment when you realized you wanted to do what you do now. Who did you tell first? What has it been like since that moment?
I first knew music was my gift once I moved to Ohio around when I was 21.
At the time I had a friend that I knew of in Ohio & he was displaying his music. Freestyle is playful but I didn’t take songwriting seriously to create a song.
Ohio was where I wrote my first song “Out Of Control”.
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve had to face and how did you overcome it?
Not going to college and removing myself from my family. It was tough at times to have that confidence when family, friends & society are pushing you to just work a 9-5.
I grew up in a group home from 12 years old to my senior year in high school. Childhood was very different but we didn’t let it define us.
I moved to Ohio with a friend I knew of & then things went bad so I came back to Virginia. My family was already doubting me & I had mad depression to the point where I attempted suicide.
I found Job Corps a government trade school in West Virginia & left my toxic environment. I stayed there until COVID-19 came about & collected that Trump Aid money.
A graphic designer messaged me from San Antonio & after we talked I was planning to visit Texas for 2 weeks. After the 2 weeks visit, I knew I had to move to Texas. I stacked up my money for 1 month then made the move permanent. Texas is where the groundwork for my brand OBM started to be visual & not just a dream idea.
I had to leave San Antonio because of money problems. Before I moved I visited Las Vegas where I met a digital marketer to learn how to promote my brand.
Houston has put me through multiple life-changing tests to see if I truly believe I’m Once Broke Millionaire. Houston is also the city where I started to get some movement with promoting OBM to one day become successful as an entrepreneur.
I hired some social media influencers to help make content for my brand so I can start running Facebook ads. The growth that has been made while living in Houston for a few months has been great.
It was so great that I started making a plans to live in LA.
