Discovering his love for music production while listening to some Afro Pop tracks back in 2011, he started making beats and remixing popular tracks in his school dormitory, showing them to his family and friends. Things loosened up a year later when he met Enibeats to teach him on how to produce music, for 6 months Captain E understudied Enibeats, he then put his new found skills to the test.
