His first song was ‘Wagithomo’ which was inspired by an ex. His second hit was a year later.

His dad wanted him to do gospel. He refused arguing there is no money in Gospel music.

“There was the assumption that gengetone was vulgar. So I was scared to tell him, he never used to know what I did, so after Wagithomo it became a popular hit, then an Uncle discovered it, he took a picture and sent it to my dad.

My dad stayed silent for a month, then after the second song he asked me when I had planned to tell him I was writing gengetone”

Good thing he was making money, so his dad didn’t make too much trouble.
