Coach Ap is a YouTube Guru who first joined YouTube in 2006. Ap's first success on YouTube would come in the music genre with his Suppose 2 be music video reaching over 100K viewers in just a few days on his Ap 1nabillion channel.

After turning down a record deal Ap would branch out and independently create successful media channels Welcome2NycTv, Welcome2CaliTv and Welcome2Hiphop with his wife singer/songwriter Dangerus Diva. Their media channels, which consisted of celebrity interviews, reviews and reaction videos, would go on to reach over 20 million monthly viewers and gain the attention of every media network.

Fall of 2012 Ap and Diva formed a partnership with George Strompolos, Ceo of Fullscreen Media, and created the Welcome 2 Media Network.

By the beginning of 2015 Fullscreen Media had sold to Otter Media for $500 Million and Welcome 2 Media had earned a reputation as a network which finds diamonds in the rough and turns them into household names.

June 2015 Ap n Diva welcomed new addition Miracle Baby Josiah into the family. Josiah was born a 24 week micro preemie at barely 1lb and 12 inches long. He would require 5 surgeries and 6 months at the hospital NICU before being able to come home with his family.

The So in Love Family would go on to create a network of over 60 family friendly channels. Most channels featured content which included Ap 1nabillion, Dangerus Diva, ItsJFunk and Miracle Baby Josiah. The channels reached over a Billion YouTube views combined with hundreds of videos reaching 1M-40M views.
