I think he is one of the most talented Mcees on the scene. he is greatly underrated by some especially after his switch to Gospel music after a stint in Ukoo Flani. Real name Julius Owino he grew up in Dandora the hood that has given Kenya so many hiphop greats. He first started hanging out with the Ukoo Flani Crew because his deskmate was part of them. and they encouraged his growing interest in hip hop. let hi Eventually he impressed them to let him enough to join.

After he got saved he began spending more time with the Kubamba Crew who introduced him to the big names in the Gospel Music Industry. The rest as they say is history. He forms an integral part of MWAPI – Music With A Positive Influence. He was also chosen as a narrator on the MTV HIV-AIDs production Shuga with his songs also featuring. He is one of those celebrities committed to making a difference with his fame and clout and his legions of fans passionately support him. He launched his album Mtaa Mentality in December 2008.
