The musician came alive in the music industry after meeting and spending time with his friend and producer, Vacs, who was working in a studio in Mallam. They spend enough time exploring music and various styles, including rapping. He then decided to be different from other artists by creating a music combination of Ga, Twi, English, and Pidgin. Twi and Ga are Ghanaian dialects, and so, he received opposition from his mentors and peers.
He defied all odds and stood firm in his choice, and as a result, he was recognized by producer Magnom. The two came together and produced some songs for the MTN pulse campaign. It is at this time that he started to catch the attention of personalities like Edem and Joey B, among others.
The musician has had his fair share of pain. When he was starting, he recalls how he was scheduled to perform on campus, but the organizers of the performance rejected him as they did not know him. He also spent three years sleeping in a studio in the pursuit of success in the music industry. He stayed away from his loved ones as he worked hard to make ends meet.
The artist who is geared by the ideologies of hard work and creativity has earned himself various collaborations with notable artists and producers in the music industry such as Kuvie, Nova, Edem, Joey B, Vacs, and Magnom. He has also had the privilege of working with telecommunication giant, MTN, where he jotted down and performed their theme song for the popular MTN pulse campaign.
