Artist BioMusic hit his heart at a tender age of 12. He is from a family of music way from his Great grandparents coming to face with the fact that his grandfather was given a (free) wife when he impressed her father with music. This great talent was passed to his father. He has composed pieces that have been performed to the levels of presidential ceremonies in state house. Then, he comes in, with a multiplication of talents: a rapper, writer, model and actor. He is still known as the king of the undefined. He was like a good boy gone bad in the eyes of many after he started going the hiphop way which was unacceptable in Kenya back then. He loves doing his thing to the best of his ability. Musically, he has a crazy slogan of “Mziki N afanyia Justice Bila Hata Practice,” which means, “I do justice to music even without practice.” He has the fastest exploding fan base across the world simply because his Music goes beyond the limits of style and the fact that he is multi talented. That’s the definition of INFLUX SWAGGA.
