In 2000, he met Mainza Chipenzi, one of Zambia’s pioneers in the new era of Zambian music and recorded ‘Wekatemwikwa’ a song that became his first hit record and later opened a lot of doors to his career as a hip-hop artist. ‘Wekatemwikwa’ went to number one on the African music charts including Channel O, The Urban Massive show. His first album ‘All 4 U’ was released by Dream Records and was distributed by Zambia Angola Malawi Music Organisation (ZAMMO).
