With the band he toured many places including the UK and Germany. He later joined Achieng Abura’s band and was privileged to tour Spain during his membership.

His solo debut album was released in 2003 under Blu Zebra Studios by Tedd Josiah. At the Kisima Music Awards, he won two categories Best Male Artist and Best Promising Artist. His second album Indigo was released in August 2007.
