He started taking music seriously that same year. He has a three year old son, Miguel Junior who is his pride and joy and his key motivation.
In 2012 he entered The Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall competition and has also appeared on Smile Jamaica Its Morning Time “ROLL OUT” where he was successful in entertaining patrons.
His first professional song “I’ve Got a Dream “has impacted the life of many and basically tells his life story.
