This recognition comes on the back of his latest feature in “Brown Skin Girl” off Beyonce’s “The Lion King” album.

His maiden entry into the Billboard Hot 100 was in Drake’s, One Dance, which lasted 10 weeks. 

He continues to make strides in the industry becoming the first African artist to walk the runway at a Dolce and Gabbana fashion show with his music “soco” played at the background.
