In 2012 he released his album titled Bouncing ball and in 2020 he released Sweet Raggae music. In 2020.  In his spare time he loves reading, jogging, listening to music, cooking, socializing, rehearsing and recording music.

He joined the Ubuntu Tv series as King Katumba after Producer and show runner Yoweli Chungu spotted him at a concert. I got the shock of my life when Yoweli approached me and asked if I could act. It took him an hour to convince me to try acting.  Playing king Katumba is both fun and challenging but I appreciate the whole process. I hope people will embrace the character.
