He started singing at the age of 16 and according to him, “My mission is to give Hip Hop the standard it deserves and most importantly convince listeners that I can deliver the brand of Good Music they demand”. He intends to dominate Nigeria musically…in his words, “Music chose me, I didn’t choose it”
