He is a Ga -Adangbe born in Akuse with two sisters, attended Kokomlemle Primary and High School then to Harvard College in Kokomlemle in the same school and class as Lazy from the VVIP music group.

After his loss, TT of Media Touch volunteered to push him on to Zapp Mallet but that didn’t go well.
Alongside the line, he put it upon himself solely to record with Screwface, Tinny, Okra, Castro and Kwabena Kwabena which led to the release of his hit song ‘Odowuo” with Kwabena Kwabena in 2005 but the rest were not released due to his time travel to the USA and paused doing music.
