1978 born in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, he spent his childhood in his father's homeland Nigeria, in order to return to Germany in the age of nine years due to the at that time dramatic economic and political situation in the west African state. Hope for imminent return was not confirmed, but him and his family got rapid entrance to the local society. He sees his musical roots in the underground Hip Hop of the west coast. That's how he got to know his partner since many years Johnny D.. Impressed by the different (electronic) music styles, which came along on their journeys in night life, the first UK Garage records of his co-inhabitant at that time got him to get interested in djing. The fascination and variety which House music gave him led to a style change early in his career. At first very vocal-loaded, as it was the case for the "RAJO" events, organised by him, Johnny D. and Nick Curly, which pulled on itself the enthusiasm of the local public; later he focused more on the deep, soulful but at the same time pushing beat. Following the Chicago-House legend Derrick Carter, the expression-strong DJ is considered as a further hopeful talent of the Mannheim club scene. Influenced by the electronic movement in the Jungbusch (the part of Mannheim he lives in), he also brought the technoid side of House music into his sets without leaving his musical origin.
