I started playing the drums at the age of 3 and I picked up the love for the keyboard at the age of 5. I had a gift, a divine gift.

I followed my mum to her church one day and asked if I could play the drums. I was 12 years old. And just like Hannah gave her son to be used by God, my mum gave me to the church. I began to serve in church and began to grow musically and spiritually. I would rehearse every day, even when no one was in church. I was practicing because I felt like it was something I should do, not knowing that God was preparing me for something.

MasterKraft saw me playing at my church in 2010, when I was 14, and he was impressed. He became my mentor and I began to learn about production, music arrangement and so many other things. My big break came in 2012, during MasterKraft’s birthday when Tim Godfrey saw me. He remembered me as the “Fountain church boy” and said I should come for rehearsals the next day. At the rehearsal, he announced to everyone that I was now part of the Xtreme crew. I didn’t even audition.

I joined Xtreme at the age of 16. I produced two of Tim Godfrey’s albums at 17.
