Later on, Gazza handed him a contract after he set up Gazza Music Productions. However, Sunny Boy turned the offer and opted to join Mshasho Production.  

Under Mshasho, Sunny Boy released the single “Balance” and debut album “Young, Black en Gifted”. His next album “Elai Leneenndunge” came in 2006 and it received a nomination for the Channel O Award as well as the SANLAM Music Awards.

In 2008, Sunny Boy released “The Sleeping Giant” and the following year, “Business and Pleasure” and “Uuluyele” is his latest piece of work. The name of Sunny Boy's album captures the difficulties he endured when he began his career.
