He uses his music as a platform for social development, to create awareness on many important issues such as:- Peace, Human rights, Justice, Girl Education, Leadership, Environmental protection, etc, to improve the way of life for young people in developing country, bring to the world a more truthful understanding and image of Africa and its beautiful culture as opposed to what is portrayed through the media and contribute to the development and sustainability of communities in Africa. His songs tell of all these stories…
