Bio/Creative Life Cycle
I grew up in a musical family where grandparents being some of the village hero musicians. Loved old zilizopendwa and African touch of music which I used to listen together with my mother. I grew up singing alongside my sister and brother in choir. As a young kid who couldn’t speak, went on stage with them and danced sung in my baby language of “ababababa” as they continue to sing.

In form two, I recorded my first single (Gal). After high school I formed vocal local band with my brother and friends, I later joined herdsmen band as a lead vocalist which I did for a year. During this time, I recorded two singles. Later decided to start my own band Demas which basically stands for Dennis and Mass Band with which I have had some recognition and success later being African Media Association delegates sound in Motion Secretary. I have performed in major events including: – Sawa Sawa Festival, Riftvaley Festival, Sondeka Festival, Ikosora Festival among others and a tour in Sweden and Portugal. I also did lots of sound trucks on movies, documentary (Making of Merome) with Ida who lives in Netherlands.
