Even though most people condemned him for moving from Nigeria to America,he was daunted and has proven that hard work pays.
The 32 year old singer and harmonica player was interviewed on BET by april woodard on ‘welcome to america’ as a platform for him to introduce himself to the American Music Industry and its audience.

The interview was used to show his strong urge to introduce African music to the western world.
He was formerly with Mo’hits but due to some irreconcilable differences between the both founders and his movement to America,the two broke up. He is currently with Mercury Uk/G.O.O.D Music.
