In 2017, he shared the stage with prominent names in the music industry in the United Kingdom. He performed alongside Nigeria’s own Afrobeat phenomenon Iyanya, as well as the legendary T-Pain, to name a few.
He made a name for himself in Nigeria with his song “Ibeere,” a street-oriented tune. In 2018, he collaborated with Burna Boy to remix his song “Issa Vibe.”
On February 7th, 2020, he published his album “Nasty,” a 10-track project, which was subsequently followed by the release of his most recent album, “Top Memba,” on July 24th, 2021.
