The talent who started producing beats during his 3-yr stay in Ghana, from the age of 10 to 13, has grown to be a master over a wide range of genres.

His sound is the perfect synthesis of his past — an upbringing that swirled hiplife, hip-hop, house, dubstep, Afrobeats into one pot (including the ballads of Celine Dion).

“There wasn’t a lot of internet access so I tried to recreate what we listened to back here [in England] once I got hold of Fruity Loops,” he recalls.

He might have started by messing around on a computer but his tight production is now the soundtrack to a Mercury-nominated album.

He has gained the spotlight from previous works with renowned rapper J Hus and now, Nigeria’s latest Grammy award-winner, Burna Boy who won the Global Music Album category for his Twice As Tall album.

This means he gets producer credits for the album and a Grammy recognition and award for his contribution to the album. It’s a win for Ghana!
