In 2000, He recorded his first solo and in 2006he had a mega hit song called Ganja Man. He is best known for his single called “Gongo Aso” which was really played at the clubs in Nigeria. He does most of his music in Yoruba but in Pidgin English as well and he produced his own label called Alapomeji Records.

He has performed at shows like the Soundcity/MTN Campus Blast Tours in 2007, Mandela’s 90th Birthday in London, and his European tour which took place in Italy, Spain, and Switzerland. He has already won some awards like the Hip-hop world awards; MOBO awards, City people awards, and the MTV Base Best Hip hop Act awards.
