He eventually branched out on a solo career, creating his individual style, which was essentially a blend of traditional chanting with Hip-Hop and a dash of R+B, all delivered with his trade-mark incendiary stage-energy. He released two hugely successful albums- "Free me"and "Gingah your swagger Pt 1", which featured what are now Club classics- "Free madness"; "Akpako" etc
