His debut album, Born to Love, is lively and threaded with an innovative fusion of Reggae, Rock & Afrobeat; a unique, intelligible and harmonious amalgamation that uplifts, intrigues and inspires the listener.

His writing style is purposefully profound with explicit intent to deliver a meaningful and worthwhile principle message sweeping the listener through a life-journey.
