When did you begin your career and how has the journey been?

My music career started way back in High school, free styling and emceeing in events. That’s how I got to shape my talent. The journey has been full of ups and downs but all of them have been an eye opener in one way or the other. I’m honored to be where I am today

At times, your career has been characterized by spells of silence. What goes on during those spells?

Usually I’m on the ground hustling and handling my other business or in the studio recording new stuff for my fans. As you have witnessed, every time I get back on the scene, the ground always shakes from beats of my new hit.
