However, his first collaboration song ‘’Sweet Love’’ with Vinka in December 2018 opened him to the wider market in the Ugandan music industry, and later made name for himself. His first concert was on the 29th of November, 2019 in Freedom City, Kampala.

He has worked with a variety of artists like Vinka, VIP Lemo, Ykee Benda, Daddy Andre, and many others. His hard work in the industry has earned him several nominees and awards, some of which are the ‘’2019 HiPipo Music Awards for the Must Watch Talent Artist’’, 2019 Zzina Awards for Best Dancehall Artist’’, ‘’2020 HiPipo Music Awards for Song of the Year’’, and many more.
