I was born in a small town called Nakuru which is a tourist destination that is world famous for her birds - specifically Flamingoes. Music has been ringing in my head since I was a little boy. A cousin of mine introduced me to Reggae at a very early age, when I was about six - I could listen to Bob Marley and Peter Tosh for hours and my cousin would try and translate all that was being sung.

Later on I fell in love with African music that also inspired me greatly todate. I loved listening to Kenyan Coastal music, East, West and Central African tunes and learnt to play the African drums and flute.

I believe in fairness, Equal Rights and justice. Actually I owe my musical career to a beautiful American lady called Sarah Marshall who taught me songwriting for close to ten years with breaks in between. She is the one who inspired and encouraged me to take music seriously.

However my first song was done in Nashville in the year 2003 and was titled "We Need Some Peace".
