strong Christain values and early exposure to music was from his father who was the first

morning devotions where the whole family would sing in harmony to songs and with his dad on
the piano or guitar (which were his core instruments), the atmosphere felt so exhilarating which
incited his yearning for music.

By his teen days, he was already heading the Teens Choir of his church and by now could
already play the piano and drums but his love for vocal harmonies pushed him to discover some
music directors from urban contemporary gospel groups and choirs which satisfied his music
appetite such as Kirk Franklin, Tye Tribett and GA, Donald Lawrence and Tri city group, James
Fortune and FIYA, to mention but a few, eventually influencing his music style.
