He released his first demo at his graduation ceremony from secondary school and it was titled “Stand up” with a total of 5 songs. And he says his parents were fully supportive before,during and after the process.
When he entered Covenant University, he was motivated to start making music again when he discovered that his former house captain Mfon(DJ Nobong) was into producing. Then he worked on two tracks grateful and No one greater featuring Henrisoul both produced by Dj Nobong. With advice from his friend Yimika Adesiyun (J Swiss) who was also into rapping from the same secondary school, he discovered the importance of promoting music online.
