She first made her debut posting rap music on Nico Nico Douga and was later signed to the indie label LOW HIGH WHO? PRODUCTION in 2012. For the first few years of her career DAOKO had to keep her face hidden, seeing as her school had a strict policy about their students being part of the entertainment industry. In 2015, she signed to with the label major TOY'S FACTORY. Since graduating from school, DAOKO has been showing her face starting with her 2015 single "ShibuyaK / Samishii Kamisama".
