The 29 year old revered DJ has been turning heads left, right and center wherever he goes because of his prowess behind the decks and has shared the stage with international acts like P-Square, Ice Prince, AKA, Movado and D’Banj, to mention but a few.
Late last year he shrugged off stiff competition from local and regional acts to represent Zimbabwe at the Miller Sound Clash Finals in Las Vegas, USA.
His capabilities have however not been limited to the art of deejaying as he has proven that he is is just as 'potent' behind the microphone as he is behind the decks and hits such as “729” and “She Loving the Crew” to mention just a few, quickly come to mind.

He has shared the booth with the likes of Simba Tags, Reverb 7, Smiley and Lochnation, among others.
In recent years, the award winning DJ has teamed up with DJ Rawse to form an incomparable duo and gone on to become a resident DJs at clubs such as Mekka, Sky Bar, H2O, Liquid Lounge and Lime, to mention but a few. That list also includes a residency at 1+1 Happy where he plays alongside the likes of Judgement Yard.
Besides being a resident DJ at some of the biggest clubs in Harare, he has also become a permanent fixture at the Harare International Festival of the Arts (Hifa).
