It was the first Namibian hip-hop compilation that was made available across international digital stores and was the number one hip-hop album on iTunes for two weeks.
Over the years he has seen a lot of success in his music career and has been the talk of the town ever since his music video ‘Jealosy’ with Maria Nepembe. They have been spotted together a lot, and there have been rumors about them dating from time to time.
