MUSICAL JOURNEY:

His passion for music grew when he used to free style during church services and even during school events. In 2008, Jungle Preacher recorded his first reggae song called ‘Lets Believe’ from the book of Romans 10:13 in the Bible. After moving to Nairobi in 2011, Jungle Preacher did a collaboration on ‘Fi Di King’ with Kevoh Zeal featuring Kevoh-Yout who was the leading dance-hall Gospel Artist in Kenya by then.

In 2017, Jungle Preacher was featured in a song by Allan Proverbs from Uganda with the song called ‘Lost and Found’.

With the 2013 and 2016 tribal conflict that took place in South Sudan, Jungle Preacher then released a hit conscious song ‘Galu Galu’ an Arabic words meaning ‘Rumor Mongering or they say’ in English.
