Though in 2016, he did become so popular with Dremo’s ‘Ojere’, then in 2017, it was altogether another level for him. Being able to find the right mix for Olamide on ‘Wavy level’, and the magic he carried to Ycee’s ‘Juice’, which was in contention for one of the records of the year 2017, it was indeed a blessed year for him.

His profile speaks for him. From creating Wizkid’s “Sounds From The Other Side”, you will agree with me that he has been one of the best music producer we have ever had but though he is usually on the background. He remember that he was responsible for Runtown’s ‘Mad over you’, then he’s got to make every available list this year.
