What we do then was downloading Free beats and freestyling on them but in 2013, A friend of mine called IBK heard some of my freestyles I recorded on my phone and there he encouraged me never to give up, the next day after those words of encouragement, he told me to get ready that we are going to meet sirme samaila saidu(Dr SirMe) that his now a music producer and his very good on hip-hop and lot more, i was desperate cause I’ve never been to a studio for once, so we went there and I was introduced to Sirme Samaila saidu as an upcoming artist, sirme samaila sat me down too and gave me some couple words of advice on music and was asked to try creating a song on my own, I was nervous though but it doesn’t took me that much long to composed the song cause even in the band I was one of the best Rapper among them, so i formed a title: SHOW ME.
