His talent was spotted by Peter Stuyvesant promoters and he got the opening act slot for internationals acts such as Paul Simon, Tina Turner, Gloria Estefan and Janet Jackson.

After a six-year relationship with CSR Records he moved to Gallo Records, where he released a live studio album called Faya with favourites like Tsoang Tsoang Tsoang and Kalimba.

His 2000 album Stress was nominated for the 2001 Sama for the Best Adult Contemporary Album.
