“When you allow rhythm, melody and passion to take over your body and direct its movement, you don’t end up with just a dance, you create an experience, and that’s what I give to you when I perform- The Shakes Experience.”

Shayxxes started writing the moment he learnt to hold a pencil and was crowned the 2nd best junior writer in his first year at high school, Mfantsipim School, the same place he got the name “Shayxxes” which is actually the short form of Shakespeare, a name reserved for the best in English language and conferred on him by his classmates due to his depth with words and rhyming skills.

He is the proud author of over 500 love poems which he hopes to publish in the nearest future.

He has written several songs and has had the opportunity to work with various musicians in Ghana and abroad.

He won the second-best Michael Jackson Look-alike in 2002 and has since then choreographed a number of groups and individuals alike. He is the founder and leader of the NO LIMIT KREW, the first runners up to HIGH SPIRIT of the Malta Guinness Street Dance Championship in the year 2010 and has shared the same stage with Kwabena Kwabena, Stonebwoy, Samini, Kaakie, Okyeame Kwame, Wutah, Guru, Tinny, Method Ranking, Ginger Man, Fire Stone, Dadie Opanka, Nana Boroo, Pope Skinny, Joey B, Pappi Kojo, Black Kat,  Praye, Yaa Pono among others.
