Born and raised in the East African city of Nairobi, Kenya, I started writing songs at the age of 10, inspired by parallels in the urban lives of the people around me and those in the media. 12 years on, I am still writing and performing, growing every day as an artist.
My debut album was completed and scheduled to be released in 2004, at the age of 14. Unfortunately, due to lack of recording space and finances, the project was scrapped. In 2006, I struck up a friendship with two up and coming producers, K-Yos and AR-15 at Miagi Entertainment, with whom I began collaborating.
While studying engineering in London, I finally released my first mixtape in 2009, entitled, “Goin’ For Gold”. This was followed by another mixtape ,“After the 1st”, the following year. Although certain songs such as “Make Your Move”, “Sunrise to Sunset” and “Addict”, were released to good reviews, the mixtape was never released in its entirety.
In order to successfully juggle my degree course and artist life, I developed what many term as an unparalleled work ethic. To date, I have recorded close to 50 finished songs and written well over 100. I also experimented in the role of producer and taught myself how to master and mix all my own records. Who better to find the sound I am searching for but me? On completion of a 4 year long degree program, I moved back to Kenya to pursue music full time.
I am currently working on my album "Where I Am Now".
